I’ve been a bad blogger, but a good quilter lately, I promise.
Olde City Quilts had me make another sample – this is Bjorn Bear, by Elizabeth Hartman. I do love her patterns.
This came together easily – I’ve finally learned to cut and label my pieces, not cut and stack them and hope I remember which is which. (Having a quilt on the longarm is helpful for organizing.) Patterns with a lot of pieces require sticky note labels. Amazingly, I only made one mistake on this block, and I caught it quickly. I’m improving!
One of my favorite parts of making shop samples, is that when I walk into my favorite quilt shop, it is like being in a gallery displaying my work. I love it! (Bjorn is the only work that is mine in this shot.)
