Block 2, Pat Sloan Forum and More


Okay quilters, here is the much anticipated Block 2. It is a Rose Wreath. Remember that all blocks finish at 12" and are set on point.http://www.scribd.com/doc/19982491/Block-2-Rose-Wreath /This is the link to your pattern. I used 1/2" bias tape maker to make my wreath stem. I marked a circle that measured 7 1/2" with a chalk pencil to guide where the inside edge of my stem would be. This helps to make sure you have room for all the pieces.
Now here's the fun part. Pat Sloan has graciously set up a forum for everyone to chat about their progress and there is even a Flickr page for all of you to post the block photos so we can see them all. Is that great or what? You will have to head over to http://www.patsloan.com/ and thank her because I could never have pulled that off with my computer skills. http://quiltmashup.com/index.php/board,50.0.html This is the link to the forum. I am very excited about this because it let's me actually interact with you guys! Everyone has been on the ball with the first block but I know sometimes half way in we lose some steam. I think this will be a fun way to stay motivated. Here's the link to post your photoshttp://www.flickr.com/groups/1189771@N25/ . Now get sewing!
