Blocks 13-15 Giveaway

 This month's blocks in the Skill Builder Sampler weren't exactly normal, were they?  We started off with a paper foundation string block, then a fabric foundation crazy quilt block and finished up with a paper piecing practice block.  We have started to leave the basic quilting skills and are moving into skills that we might not have practiced before.  Kind of scary and uncomfortable.

Coming up in November we will continue to work on paper piecing, in December we will practice applique and in January we will start the year off with curves.  Now would be a great time for quilters who feel comfortable with the basics, but who want to stretch their skills to jump in.

If you have fallen behind, no fear, catch up as you can.  These tutorials will be there when you need them.  But...the half way mark of the We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler is at the end of November and there will be a larger than normal giveaway for everyone who has completed all of the blocks.  Enough fabric to make a lap sized quilt!

But for now, if you have completed Blocks 13-15 leave a comment below and you might win a "mini layer cake" of Echino fabric.  There are nine 9 inch squares of various prints from the Nico Spring 2011 collection.  I didn't see why everyone gushed about these cotton/linen blends until I got some in a swap.  I love the feel of the heavier linen and the prints are really fun.  If you don't win and want to buy a package click here.

    I'm looking forward to getting more practice in paper piecing as my first attempt took several tries to get right.
