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.
