G-9 Jen 

Jen – “Sparkler” Fat Stack, a beautiful blend of Purple, Blue and Green Kona Solids

Jen says:  I made templates from the book and English Paper Pieced my block.  I liked being able to work in sections for assembling this block, first the corners, then the center star.  I’m pretty sure I assembled this one during a Brewer Game at Miller Park.

G-9 Stephanie 

Stephanie – Downton Abbey

Stephanie says:  Wow, these 45 degree diamonds just keep getting smaller with each block!!  Resist the urge to clip your extra corners!  Also, don't press your Y-seams open!  I feel great triumph every time I finish one of these stars!

We encourage you to take pictures of your blocks and upload them to our Loyal Union Sampler 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 Following us on Facebook or on Instagram (#patchedworks & #loyalunionsampler)

It’s never too late to join the fun.  Stop in the shop to find out more about how to get started. 

It’s always a party at Patched Works!
