What an absolute 21 days it has been! The only thing in my planner accomplished is paying bills. I am excited to be back at work, and even more excited to start the Polk's Compromise Quilt Along!
Starting in January a local quilt shop used this pattern as a Mystery Quilt. It was so neat seeing the different color schemes make the quilt look so different. I can't wait to start designing my next one.
This design was fun to make. First, I love this particular block. It has a lot of interesting history behind it. Second, I fell in love with the color scheme. There are other reasons, but they're pretty boring.
Polk's Compromise is on sale in the Patterns Shop for $10, the normal price being $15. The Facebook Quilt Along is free. Just a fun time to get together with other quilters. I suppose you could call it an modern sewing bee! Along the way I'll give you a few tips that will be helpful for this project and others to come.
Here is our schedule:
April 8th - Four Patches
April 22nd - Square in a Square
May 6th - Triangle in a Square
May 20th - Block A
June 3rd - Block B
April 17th - Quilt Assembly
??????? - Finished!
Did you notice the finished date is a bunch of question marks? This may be a quilt finished in a week or become one of those lifetime UFO. Regardless come and join the fun!
