Hi guys! It’s Week 4 of this little Echinacea Field Block Sew A Long and we are starting to see alot of Echinacea Blocks popping up which is making me very happy. Thank you all for following along and making my pattern. I can’t even express how that makes me feel.
This week we are still sewing. Whatever that means to your project. Sewing more blocks, potentially finishing up a project. We only have a partial week next week, but I want you to keep sewing after the Sew A Long as I am sure you will.
I wanted to highlight a couple more blocks made by some of my friends so you could see some variation from what I make. Also check out the hashtag #echinaceafieldblocksal as there are some great flowers being made by all of you.
This cutie was made by my friend Faith of Sarana Ave. She makes amazing stuff and made the bottom strip of her Echinacea grass as well as made the block feel scrappy without every single piece being scrappy. Love that!
My friend Jen couldn’t help herself and made a tiny little mini from my pattern by FPP the diagram in the pattern. LOVE that!!! It is absolutely adorable and I need to do this. Check out Jen’s lovely Instagram feed @jenniferjohnston
My friend Myrth made this great mini quilt when she tested for me and she hand quilted it. yes!!! I love hand quilting and she accented it so beautifully with hers. Check her other work out and some free tutorials for quilts on her Handmade by Myrth.
I LOVE to see you using and making with my patterns, and I love it even more when I see you putting your own spin on things, whether it be shrinking or enlarging the pattern, coming up with unique fabric placement, selecting colors I didn’t think off, special quilting, all those special details that make it yours.
My goal is to always make the world more beautiful. Through, quilts, decorating, gardening, kind words and actions, and inspiring others to do the same. I hope you find your little part of the world a little more beautiful after making this block.
