Resolved to learn some new sewing skills this year?
Want to win some great prizes?Then join in the blog hop for The Something New Sampler!
Each week, one or two bloggers will present a block tutorial with an uncommonly used technique. There will be a total of 9 blocks presented. And, just to mix it up, we’re going with a funky modern block size – 7″ x 14″! We’ll have plenty of suggestions on how to use this block shape along the way. There’s no need for our modern blocks to always be square :)
Here’s our schedule:
Amy @ thecutelifesmiles.blogspot.com | Bargello piecing
And stop by the cute life on Fridays for tips and tutorials on how to set these rectangular blocks! Posts will be up on the following dates:
Jan 18, Jan 25, Feb 1, Feb 8, Feb 15
Be sure to join the flickr group to keep up with the hop, the chatter, and some inspirational photos.
At the end, link up a blog post or flickr photo with anything you’ve done from the sampler series, even if it’s just one block! There are two categories for prizes:
– finished projects, winners will be chosen by popular vote
“finished” includes an entirely completed smaller project, like a pillow, table runner, mini quilt, etc.
pieced quilt tops also count as “finished”, even if not quilted
– participation prizes, winners will be chosen by a random number generator
link up any progress you’ve made!
