Dear Prudence Sew~Along Part Four

 Hi~  I trust your blocks are all made and looking pretty.  I do so love this part of quilt making, when you get to lay out the blocks, and setting, and get the first look at what the quilt will really look like!

I lay the blocks out on the design wall and place the setting triangles....then the moving of blocks begins.  This part I don't enjoy because you move, and move, trying not to place two of the same fabrics together....and then you move again.  Ugh!  Even with a totally scrappy quilt, you'll end up having two reds together or something that will drive you crazy.  Then, I think of all of the quilts I have made....when I snuggle under them, do I think about those two fabrics together?  Nope!  So, I try my best, and then resign not to sweat the small stuff.  How about you?

You are welcome to follow my block layout or arrange them as you desire.

Follow the instructions in the Dear Prudence pattern and add your borders.  Isn't she sweet?

I sincerely hope you have enjoyed making Dear Prudence.  I think she's adorable, and I thank you all for sewing along with me.  If you're just now finding out about this little quilt, you can get the pattern here.

In The Studio This Week......

We are knee deep in folding, packaging, boxing and shipping Walnut Hollow and Tokens-Halloween Spirit quilt kit orders.  That is our main focus!  Additionally, I am working on new fabric lines for next year, a new BOM, a few more Quilt Archaeology events and a new Teeny, Tiny Quilt Club project for right after the New Year.

Because of you and your support, I can keep creating fun things for us to do together.  And, after 19 months of staying home, my family and I are taking a much needed vacation to see family in CA.  

Keep your needle busy and your heart content.  Be well, my friends.
