a tutorial for this Love Knot block. This photo isn't the greatest, so you may have overlooked it because of that (I almost did), but the block has a lot of possibility. The skill level is listed as "moderate," but there's a giant warning within the tutorial about PERFECT 1/4" seams being INCREDIBLY important for this block. Yikes. And there are partial seams too. But I think I'm up for the challenge, and I would love to make it in more modern fabric.
Creative Grids ruler is worth its weight in gold. Gold, you guys! A student in my Modern Sampler class brought it to class and convinced the rest of us to try it out. Wow!
All of us in the class loved this ruler so much that we bought out the entire stock at the store where I teach. I'm now on the look-out for more sizes. And no, this is not a sponsored blog post. Creative Grids isn't paying me anything. I just totally love this ruler. : )
QuiltCon is only three days away! Did any of you see that episode of Parks and Rec a few weeks ago where Ron Swanson was at the woodworking awards—he was all giddy and excited and acted like a dorky fanboy about one of the other woodworkers? Yeah, that's totally going to be me at QuiltCon. : ) Anyway, Christa at Christa Quilts posted a little "sneak peek" at some of the quilts that will be in the show, including mine. It's the next best thing if you can't attend in person.
Happy Monday, everyone!
