The Wyoming Valley is NOT in Wyoming, it is Pennsylvania. Did you already know that? I didn’t, but Sister Jaquelyn made me take Calculus and not Geography my senior year of High School. I may not know what is East and West of me, but boy I could derive integrals like nobody’s business way back when. (secret: I honestly loved Calculus and all Math, but I still wish I could have taken Geography too)
Now that I’ve got that off my chest, let’s get on with Block #10 in First Notes of the Quilt Concert Series.
I really love the options to this block. By playing with value and color placement, you can create so many star shapes out of one quilt block!
Block 10 can be found at The (Not So) Dramatic Life Etsy Shop.
I cannot wait to see all the interpretations this week. That’s been such a wonderful part of this Quilt Concert, I really love seeing all the different ways each block is made. I cannot wait to see all the quilt tops!!!
Week 11 Sponsors!!!
We have two wonderful Sponsors this week!!!
Dabble and Stitch is a wonderful online shop of beautifully curated fabrics. I’m actually excited because by the time you read this, I’ll have gone to their local pop up shop that they are having today and tomorrow! They are sending one U.S. resident a $50 gift card to the online store.
The Sewing Loft has amazing single block patterns ready to download. Seriously, they are all so cute it is hard to pick one. Luckily the winner will be able to choose a 10 block bundle! I’m a little bit jealous to be honest.
