It's another day in our Sweet Scandi Sew along and today we hop on over to the Fat Quarter Shop Blog and see the alternate blocks/side blocks that Kimberly has been working for us. I love all her tips that she has and have you checked out the new Jelly Roll Jam 2 pattern she just released this week? I have one in the planning stages and I will post when I finish....it's a super quick and fun pattern so I am hoping you will check it out.
Next week I will be sharing with you the final chain blocks for the Sweet Scandi and then piecing it all together. Be sure to watch for the Ebay link to bid on the finished quilt as 100% of the winning bid will go to the Susan B Komen foundation.
On another note...today is the start of our MN State Fair! My family and I have been going to fair every year for as long as I can remember. It marks the end of summer for us. We love to go and spend the day eating awesome fair food, playing games, checking out the creative arts building and sitting on 4-wheelers on Machinery Hill. The day would not be complete for me without stopping at the quilt shop. Yes, our fair even has a quilt shop! It's Rosebud's Cottage from White Bear Lake. Every year Roseann packs up her shop and moves it to the fair grounds. And for the past 8 years (has it really been that long!?!) I have designed an exclusive pattern for her that she gives out to the people who subscribe to her newsletter. (That is where you find the coupon for the free pattern...you gotta have a coupon to get it!)
Here is the finished wall hanging~
So if your heading out to the fair be sure to stop by and see her cute shop. It's located in the new West End mall of fair....tell her I sent you!
P.S. Last week we had a little glitch in our sew along. Moda Lissa was going to post her 3 large star blocks but she was out of town and the WIFI wasn't working right so she wasn't able to post. BUT she was working on the same blocks as Sherri from A Quilting Life. So if you are in need of help with the last 3 large blocks, just hop back over to Sherri's blog for some great tips!
