2021 Second Sat. sampler block 1

 Lady Bird Johnson said, "Where flowers bloom, so does hope".

This is a quilt of hope - hope for the future, hope for happiness for all, hope that good things will come to you in the coming year.  Thanks so much for joining us on our journey of hope as we begin this Saturday sampler series.  Have fun!

For block one you will need:

1) 4 1/2 inch black and white plaid square

2) 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch green strips

2) 1 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch green strips

4) 4 inch light squares

4) 4 inch pink floral squares

4) 3 1/2 inch pink floral squares


Sew the 1 1/2 inch green strips to the black and white plaid square to create a border.

Draw a diagonal line on the back of all of the 4 inch light squares.

Match the light squares with the 4 inch pink squares making sure the right sides are together and the outside edges are aligned.

Sew 1/4 inch on both sides of the drawn line.

Cut on the line.

Square to 3 1/2 inches and press toward the pink.

Use the photo below as a guide to assemble the components to create the block.










Happy Sewing!

A few reminders

 This Friday, May 7th will be our monthly $5.55 first Friday sale.  We have plumped up the shelf with some new fabrics.

Hope to see you Friday.

Also - the 2021 Second Saturday Sampler will begin this Saturday (May 8th).  Block one will be available for pick up at that time.  (A reminder - we close at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.)  We are excited to begin a new journey and would like to thank you for participating.  We still have a limited number of slots left if you would like to participate but have not yet signed up.  

Becky has completed the quilt top and hopefully it will be quilted soon.  We will have some finishing kits available Saturday if you would like to finish yours like we have ours.  The kits will be available on a first come basis while supplies last.  The finishing kits will be $75.95.

Lastly, we have an amazing variety of beautiful succulent gardens that are all 15% of this week for Mother's day.  Come and check them out and take advantage of the discounted pricing.

They're kind of hard to see in the photos so come check them out in person.  They are truly amazing!

See you soon - the Morgansons
