October’s Serendipity Blocks

Here are the blocks from our classes in October.  The “how to trim up” post is under the Tutorials tab now.  Good luck!!

If you are interested in making your own Serendipity Sampler block of the month quilt, please contact me.  The January 2015 Sunday afternoon class is full and a new Monday morning class time is under the class schedule tab.  This is a beginner applique class.  No experience necessary!

Month 1 Serendipity Sampler

I have started teaching a new applique block of the month at The Little General.  The pattern is from Kim Diehl’s book Simple Comforts.  I have taught the traditional version for several years at Knit One Smock Too.   Sue Lauer took my class last year and made this beauty from modern fabrics and of course I fell in love with it.   The Little General hung it behind the shop counter, we worked up a class schedule and now I have some beautiful first month blocks to share with you.

There are lots of hours in these blocks.  I think they are beautiful!!  Thanks to my students for letting me share their work.  Enjoy!
