In the flurry of collecting blocks, laying them out, and piecing, some of the blocks got separated from their notes. You’ll have to see if you can figure out which block each of these women made based on their descriptions.
Quilter: Carolyn Dotts
Pattern: Rectangle Makes the Square (Variation)
As a beginning quilter, I chose this pattern because I thought it would be fool proof. After all, how hard could it be sewing strips around a center square? That said, my seam ripper got a lot of use as I took it completely apart to resew, stopping to square each set of strips. Needless to say, I learned a lot about squaring!
Quilter: Lauren Slagle
Pattern: Double Windmill
I recently moved to Burnsville after moving quite a lot over the past 4 years and wanting to settle in one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S. I’m a quilter and also have my own small sewing business online (lolodidit.etsy.com). I have a huge passion for the craft and am a sponge to soak up and learn more from the vast talent here!
Quilter: Fran Deats Whitley
Pattern: Karen’s Star
I am a member of the “Great” Mountain Piecemakers Guild here in Burnsville. I have been making quilts for many hears and never tire of the craft. I made this block to honor my sister, Karen James!! She is the best.
Thank you, all!
