My first order of business is to remind you that today is week #9 in our Marcus Fabrics Friends & Companions Sew-along!! Today you will meet Dolores Smith, co-owner of Homestead Hearth Quilt Shop and design partner with Sarah Maxwell. Click here to visit their blog, meet Dolores and get her block instructions!
We sure hope you're having fun with our Designer Sew-along. We've had really great blocks, I think, and our big reveal is coming soon!! So, so exciting!!
Airing of the Quilts
Our Market Day quilts are going on the clothesline....there for you to enjoy. I have many, many quilts to share with you, and will do so over several posts. I am so jazzed thinking about how many people have participated in this sew-along, from all over the United States, and around the world. Isn't it grand to think that we've all be sewing on the same project together? Oh, how our love of quilting unites us!
I am delighted over how many of you made the mini version. The mini version was something I decided to do at the last minute, and boy am I glad I did. As you may know, I adore small blocks and quilts. I wanted to challenge you to give miniature blocks a try, and the blocks in this quilt, I hoped, were easy enough to tempt you. Many, many of you did try and tell me now you're hooked! Those of you already comfortable working on mini blocks enjoyed the mini version, too. I feel very strongly about stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things from time to time. That is how we grow as quilters, and there are so many wonderful things to learn. Keep on growing!
My thanks to everyone who took the time to email photos so we can all enjoy seeing them. I know that you will be inspired by all of the work and creativity of others.
Without further a-do (and I can stop blabbing now and get to the good stuff), I'll let the quilts speak for themselves. Enjoy!
