Hartfield Block 2

Here we are at Month 2. I have a few more details for you.


Some have asked about the name- Hartfield. I was watching Jane Austen's Emma as I sketched the quilt. Hartfield was the name of the family home. Hence, the name of the quilt. Aren't I clever?



The quilt will measure 48" x 63". It is a mystery. It will run for 10 months. There will be 5 months of pieced blocks and 5 months of applique. The last month will be the border and it is all applique, so be ready.



You will need 3 yards for the background fabric. It can all be the same fabric or scrappy. Mine will all be the same this time because I happen to have enough fabric. I tend to favor scrappy backgrounds myself. I think it adds interest.



This month's block is a 9-Patch Star. It measures 12" finished and is easy, peasy to put together. The pieced month's will help everyone stay caught up since they tend to be a little faster than the applique blocks. I have everything switched to google docs so there shouldn't be any printing problems. Here's your link.







Happy Quilting, Dawn



P.S. Great conversation on the Frixion Pens.



Block 1 is now available in the online store. If you would like it sent via email (which would be faster) let me know. Otherwise it will go in the snail mail.

  2. Thanks for the pattern, Dawn. I'm going to go "shop" in my fabric stash right now for the background and start this block today. Block one may have to wait a little longer......

  7. For some reason I can't get the pattern and instructions to print for me. It happened once with the last project you posted too. Maybe I just need to be patient and try again later......

  8. Thank you! I just downloaded the first month's yesterday! (I'm a little pokey with my sewing this summer) Anyway, I am going to download this one today and try to get them both done for this month. It's looking great already!

  10. I haven't started my blocks yet because I wanted to have the same background fabric. One of shops is having 35% off sale today so off I go to get the background. Yay!
    thanks again for sharing your talents with us.

  11. Dawn, I just tried to download Block 2, and it says either I wasn't allowed access to it, or it was unable to download. Can you help? Thanks so much!

  13. I can access the site with the pdf of the pattern, just can't figure out how to save it so I can then transfer it to the computer which doesn't have internet access next to my sewing machine
