Just a few reminders:
When cutting your fabric for your Quilt Top Setting, please cut your borders larger than what is specified. This pattern has you cutting everything at once but it is imperative to measure and cut for YOUR finished sizes before attaching your borders and long sashing strips.
If you’re making blocks through our 100 Blocks of Summer Program in person at Patched Works you need to have 20 blocks finished and signed off on by September 15th to receive the Patched Works collector pin.
If you’ve finished making all 100 blocks through our 100 Blocks of Summer Program in person at Patched Works you need to have them signed off on by September 15th to receive the Patched Works T-shirt & Quilt Label at the Awards Ceremony on October 2nd at 6:30PM.
Mickey has a great tip for block organization:
Use 12" squares of vinyl backed tablecloth for block design boards. Cut blocks and position them on the boards. Stack the boards in your travel box until you are ready to sew. Block pieces are laid out and ready to go. It’s a step above cutting and putting in baggies.
Nancy G drew up this fantastic layout with Graph Paper and Colored Pencils. Don’t be afraid to draw up your own design instead of just going with what the book suggests.
We encourage you to take pictures of your blocks and upload them to our Tula Pink 100 Blocks of Summer Flickr Group. If technology isn’t your thing, bring your blocks into the shop and we’ll snap a picture of them and upload them on your behalf.
You can also keep up with our progress in many places: here on our Patched Works Fabric Jules Blog, by visiting our website or by Following us on Facebook!
