Initially, I hadn’t planned on sewing along and making more Tell Me A Story blocks…but I couldn’t resist! I have made this group of 5 so far and have lots of fabric waiting in the wings, ready to become part of the story. For this version, I am using a black crosshatch for the inner triangles in each block and then various low volume fabrics for the outer triangles. The fussy cuts and borders are paired to tell a story.
As I explained in my previous blog post, I am inviting everyone to play along and make and share Tell Me A Story blocks on Instagram. The first entry is simple and no purchase required–just repost my Instragram picture showing the image above to spread the word about the stitched story telling event. You will find it in my IG stream. Use the hashtags #intentionalpiecingbook and #TellMeAStoryQuilt. Every time you make a block and share it, using those hashtags, you are entered again! The pattern is found in my new book, Intentional Piecing. The book is currently shipping from my Etsy shop and will be shipped by Amazon and Lucky Spool very soon.
2 lucky winners will receive this bundle, provided by Sew Me A Song. The fat sixteenths bundle was selected for this project and is full of fussy cutting prints. Sew Me A Song just listed the bundle for sale, as well. If you buy the bundle and then happen to win, your purchase price will be refunded. The drawing will be held on June 1.
I can’t wait to see your blocks and hear your stories!
