FWSQ for December

OK ladies - It's time for our December blocks already! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Hopefully you found time to sew during the holiday weekend.

For some, our December class will be this Friday night. For others, you've got another week until class on Saturday, Dec. 11. Our block theme for December is the hourglass! 

No matter which date you come, the block we will be making IN class is called Jackknife, which is block No. 53. Please bring the fabric you will need to complete this block in your fabric line. In Miniatures, I colored this with the brown fabric with little white specs and a tan fabric that has what I refer to as deer tracks. You should be able to click on the image to get more detail.

In Arnold's Attic, the block features a light leaf background and brown leaf and berries fabric.

You may notice the two blocks are different by switching up the color positions. The Arnold's block has a dark center while the Miniatures block has the background fabric as the center. You can do this block either way.

Please be sure to bring your machine and all the tools you need. We will be cutting strips of fabric the width of our fat quarters and squaring up pieces to 2 1/2". 

See you soon! Please e-mail me or post a comment if you have any comments or questions! Let's see who can guess what the theme of our January blocks will be. One guess per student. The winner(s) will receive a fat quarter from my stash at the next class. Please post your comment here!
