July 2 2018. We spent the long Canada Day Weekend in Prince Albert Saskatchewan. We had a family gathering to celebrate my great niece Chelsea’s Graduation, I gifted her a quilt. She is a huge roughrider fan..so I made her a Rider Quilt.. She loved it. This quilt has special meaning as not only is she a fan but she got sent to the Gray cup in edmonton as a make a wish.. Chelsea in in remission from childhood leukemia were lucky to have her with us. Were so proud of her for achieving so much in her life so far she is a strong young lady.
Now onto VS Block 8
I always like to start with the simplest units so looking at this block there are Four 1/4 triangle Squares.
8 HST so we will start with those.
Next we will build the center star.
This is what we have pieced so far.
The last step is to sew the outside into sections 2 long and 2 short. Assemble the short pierced sides with the center then sew on the large rows.
Progress so far.
Now to sew the block together. Its important to a vertical pin to line up the points and 2 horizontal pins on each side of each pin to hold it all in place so that it will not shift
I live by Mayerthorpe, Alberta Canada.A mother of 3. In my spare time I have 2 loves: Quilting and my horses these work well with the seasons. I started quilting when my oldest daughter was born 25+ years ago. I was making western shirts, when I quilt making those I had lots of bright cotton so I started making quilts. Over the last 17 years I have really gotten into it. I started taking an applique and a free motion class at my LQS. I'm now at the point where I no longer purchase Patterns. I've actually started designing my own. In 2015 I invested in EQ7 Quilt design program. In 2013 I purchased a HQ Sixteen on a 12 foot frame.
