Modern Quilt Block Library

17 10 2012

Jenny has joined the Yahoo Quilters Guild group.  As I’m also a member of the Guild, I have now joined as well.

One of the messages is about a modern quilt block library which I have been looking at this afternoon.  It is a visual library with links to instructions about how to make each block.  It is very easy to use as you can see a picture of each of the 257 (at present) blocks.  They are a mixture of templates, applique, foundation pieced and quick non template method and they are failrly modern ranging from simple to complex.  In fact something for everyone!

My top 5 on first looking are 43, 59, 106, 187 and 192.  What about you?

When did I last enjoy doing Applique - that would be Saturday!

A group of us had a great day making bags (American pouches) with raw edge applique, taught by Jeanette. The photo is of the second bag which I made when I got home. That proves that I really enjoyed the day!
