Blocks for this quilt are progressing. Sometimes on a weekly basis, or sometimes 3 in a week if I’m behind.  IMG_4122

This project has involved some first for me. This is the first time I’ve made a sampler quilt. This is also the first time I have a “metered out” project that progresses on a weekly basis. I’m enjoying the process.

Being involved in a large online group and seeing the progress and diversity of how quilters interpret the blocks with their fabric is interesting and enjoyable.

I’ve also been paying a lot of attention to my sewing so that my blocks look good and will go together well. And because of that, it has flowed into my other sewing and piecing of quilts. So a big THUMBS UP! Thanks Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell for this fun sew along!

Happy Quilting ▶︎ ▶︎ ▶︎

I’ve always been a doodler and loved art from an early age. I picked up my first fabric, a pink and white checked gingham, at 9 years old and cross-stitched my name. In 1996, my mom started quilting and her inspiration motivated me to make my first quilt in 1998. I found a pattern in a book from the library, changed the colors to make a Christmas quilt and pieced it together. I even quilted and bound it! I enjoy working with all kinds of fabric mediums and threads. I enjoy sewing with my machine and doing handwork. I get inspiration from my life including people, scenery, patterns and objects around me. Follow me here and on Instagram @lesleystorts.
