Quilter’s Patch – September block finished on time!


September’s Quilter’s Patch block-of-the-month assignment, the Greenhouse Block, was finished in plenty of time before the October block hits my mailbox. Geez … I haven’t been this “caught up” since January! It was the perfect block to work on when horrible Hurricane Harvey decided to pay our Texas Gulf Coast a visit. Plenty of hand applique was involved attaching each clamshell shingle bottom edge to the roof. If you have yet to work on this block, Edyta’s tip to use interfacing as a stabilizer made my life so much easier. I found a lightweight black interfacing which really worked well with the dark fabric used for the shingles.

Looking ahead to the finished quilt top … I’ve decided not to add the borders on my quilt top. I like to hang my quilts and change them out seasonally. The quilt, as featured, will be just too large to hang in my house. I’ll add narrow borders … perhaps piece the watering can … it is adorable … and add it to the back with a butterfly.

Next month … a sunflower block!

  1. Is this the shop that has all those beautiful fat quarters at the show all having a fancy ribbon around them. Haven’t seen them at the Wisconsin show in the later years. Thank you.

  2. You are doing so well! I’m still stuck on that horrible 8-pointed star flower block! I just am not motivated and have lost both my momentum and interest. I’m with you about the size – I probably will finish mine smaller too.
