Block 9 – Local Quilt Shop

IMG_0755

I finished piecing this block from The Splendid Sampler last night. The chimney doesn’t quite match up to the roof, but to me it really wasn’t worth fixing it. These smaller blocks, finishing at 6 inches, are really improving my cutting and piecing skills. You really have to be careful to cut the right size and sew that scant 1/4 inch seam to get the finished size. This one finished nicely.

I really like this block , but I am not quite sure how I am going to quilt it. I will have to think about it today. My first thought is to just stitch in the ditch and leave it at that. Hopefully some ideas will come to me.

Until next time!
