Kansas Dust Storm Summer Sampler Series: Kansas Dust Storm

The last tutorial for the Summer Sampler Series can be found on Lee’s blog today.  The block is called Kansas Dust Storm and she has all of her blocks photographed–they look amazing!

I have had such a fun time co-hosting this quilt along, and want to thank Faith and Lee for all of their efforts. Most of these blocks were drafted by hand (or computer)–lots of work and lots of skill building (at least for me!) It has been such a great experience–I feel like my piecing skills have grown by leaps and bounds, and as cheesy as this sounds, I have been blown away by the beautiful blocks in the flickr group. Thanks for quilting along with us–the response has been overwhelming and wonderful.

And here is a  block I haven’t shown yet– it is a variation of the Rocky Road to Kansas Block.

Happy sewing! I hope to make a few more blocks for my sampler this weekend, and long-arm it next week while I’m still in California. I’ll post sashing and block dimensions next week…I hope! Now I just need to have my husband mail me the backing fabric…

    You know you’re a quilt addict when you ask your husband to mail backing fabric cross country to you on vacation. :) I’m not making fun, I promise. I think it’s great that you and your Mom can sew together. I just wanted to say thanks to you, Kate! Between you, Faith and Lee I’ve learned so much and enjoyed myself. I’ve still got a few blocks to make up and I’m looking forward to it! Y’all are awesome!
