Welcome to Keep It Simple, Make It Fun!
For any of you visiting the Paducah, Kentucky quilt show this month, stop by the Moda Bake Shop booth and see my "Sweet Sixteen" quilt in person! Pretty exciting, eh? No, I will not be in attendance--just my quilt. Silly quilts! They travel more than I do. LOL
Also, the Charm Square QAL was uploaded earlier today. I apologize for how late it has become...but when you read the post, you will know why.
Have a great day!

Hello everyone! I apologize for the delay on these postings. Please be patient with me and we will complete this project together. In short, my family's life is being guided by the wisdom of a "Fortune Cookie" that my spouse got last weekend at dinner. It said, "Anything worth having is worth a firm negotiation." In short, our family is experiencing a major trial and I unexpectedly, do not have as much time to quilt as I would like. However, with your patience, we will get this project done together. Thanks!
I'm sure you don't want to hear my drama so on to block #8. All of the blocks in the sampler are versions of what has been called a "Tippiecanoe" block. I call this the square in a star block.
STEP TWO: Sew the columns together.
STEP THREE: Press columns in opposite directions. This block is not as tricky as the others.
STEP FOUR: Sew rows together pin-matching seams and looking for "X marks the spot".
STEP FIVE: Press rows open and enjoy!
