sarah fielke block of the month...

2016 is going to be a difficult year with lots of family health issues so I need to learn to hand quilt/sew so that I can have portable projects to take to appointments and when traveling. Uber-quilter Sarah Fielke is hosting a BOM this year called "Happy Days". You purchase the pattern and are mailed monthly instructions. There is access to a private YouTube channel and Facebook page for subscribers. The quilt promises lots of applique, English paper piecing and hand quilting. I feel a certain creative guilt that my next project is designed by someone else but Sarah is so talented I think like Allietare it will be therapeutic to follow instructions knowing the end result will be lovely. The quilt's background is going to be cheerful yellows paired with Amy Butler prints and lots of scraps. A few hot pink and red spots as well as stripes will sneak in there too.While not a mystery quilt the sketch below provides only the vaguest hint at what the finished quilt will look like... Sounds like fun, doesn't it?


  1. Good idea to get you through the family health issues. Your fabric choices look cheery. One bright spot in a tough year.
