as a group of strangers who loved books and quilting. So we gathered together to make the Solomon’s Puzzle Sampler Quilt. Quickly I discovered how talented my “students” are. Here are some of them with the first block of the quilt –
Laura, Kitty, Nancy, Ruth and Dorothy show their first efforts.
This block can be challenging because it has curved piecing, but you see that they each did well!
Karen, Michelle, Pat, Mary and Chris also completed the block. I love the variations of color choice and design arrangment.
This picture is from February… but I’ll catch you up in the next few weeks to see all that has happened in our lovely little Book Lovers Block of the Month clubs.
If you’re making a Solomon’s Puzzle Sampler Quilt… or if you’ve finished yours, please post a picture here and on the Craftsy website, where I’m now offering the quilt pattern for download.
I’d appreciate it so much!
We have a winner! Our give-away for the 500 likes on FB winner has been chosen. Congratulations Courtney Kimmel! Hope you enjoy the book or if you’ve read it, know someone who will love it. We only have a few Solomon’s Puzzle books left from the second printing, and would love to give another-with a Solomon’s Puzzle Sampler Quilt pattern too-away, too. If we can reach 1,000 likes by Nov 1, we’ll chose another winner. Note: you can’t “like” the site twice, or it subtracts you, but you can suggest it to people you know. Many thanks for all your support!
So the novel, Solomon’s Puzzle, led to a quilt
the quilt led to a pattern,
the pattern led to five different classes
full of unique, talented women who wanted to sew a Solomon’s Puzzle Quilt.
Sometimes they just don’t feel like following the pattern. Here’s a picture of three different “interpretations” of block 7, Little Low Heaven:
Kitty, Ellie and Dorothy show their gorgeous blocks.
I love them!
It looks difficult, but it isn’t!
