So this is the beginning.
If you haven’t taken a few seconds to peruse the site and learn why this even exists, I’ll give you a few seconds to do so. Go ahead, click that menu button in the upper right hand corner and check out “The ‘Why'” page. I’ll wait…
Alright, good you’re back. So that’s it! I’m making a quilt for next year’s NC State Fair using the feed sack cloth my Grandma Reba saved. It’s really awesome, and smells like her house used to. At least that front bedroom that wasn’t really a bedroom during our childhood. I’ll describe it as “Sunshine, dust and a little bit of dry corn.” I’m sure some of my cousins know what I’m talking about. Anyway, first things first in making a quilt is picking out your fabric, and I’m halfway there on that one! Second is picking out a pattern.
I scoured the internet and Pinterest of course to find some traditional and semi traditional quilt blocks. Patterns that I thought would do the fabric justice. And because I couldn’t make up my mind, I decided to crowd source my final decision. Here are the choices:
Blocks #3 and #6 are currently the most popular with #6 in the lead by one vote. So if you’re on the fence most of these would look just like they do, just one fabric pattern to a solid, except for #6 and it might end up looking something like this with using different fabrics:
So if you’d like to vote, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll put it towards my final count. I’m hoping to have a decision made by this Friday! Be sure to check back in to see what the world chooses!
