A Classic, Lady of the Lake Reveal

My first four Lady of the Lake blocks. As one might suspect I am going scrappy and using Kona cottons for my colours. I live on the shores of Lake Huron. This block has always called to me but with all those Half Square Triangles I was worried. I must say, my accuracy has improved with age and the "make it a tiny bit bigger" and use your Bloc_Loc ruler to square it up works really well for me. More blocks are in the works. If you are on Instagram check out the hashtag #ladyofthelakequilt to see how other quilts have interpreted this block. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for picking this block for your Classic and Vintage series. Piecefully, Joanne

Fat Quarter shop-Classic and Vintage Series

Earlier this summer the Fat Quarter shop opened up their Quilt Along roster to new applicants. I decided to apply and was included in the new (and returning) group.
Our first assignment was to create a block for their Classic and Vintage Series. We were to post a few sneak peaks to whet your appetite. So this is sneak peek number 1. My fabric selection. Some wonderful Kona Cottons bought as a fat quarter bundle from Mad About Patchwork a great Canadian online source for fabric.
Sneak peek number 2 is below. A few of the block components. The big reveal is now set for this Friday, September 8th. Be sure to drop by their blog (here) to learn more on Friday. Piecefully, Joanne
