So I started another semester of college this week. It’s been a couple years since I’ve been in school, so it’s definitely been an adventure. My first assignment was to create a collage that tells about “Who you are.” Which I actually kind of dislike, I don’t believe that what we do, or what we are interested in really make up “who we are.” I believe we are much more than the things that happen to us, or the activities we do each day.
Regardless. I did manage to figure out how to incorporate some sewing and fabric into my project. I wanted to make a small quilt block to show my passion for creating, sewing, quilting… etc. So I found one of my mini quilt patterns. This one happens to be Rise and Shine by Camille Roskelley. I just made one of the quilt blocks instead of the whole mini.
Of course I had to use my favorite Amy Butler fabrics scraps for the job!

I wasn’t planning on quilting it, but then I thought, I wouldn’t want this to be incomplete. So here goes nothing! I quilted it with a small scrap of Soft and Stable I had laying around, which made it very stable! (I know, perfect name right!)
I cut my binding 1.25” wide. Then I used an 1/8” seam allowance. and stitched it on just like a normal quilt!

And viola… a 5” quilt block.
Here is the completed project. I think I spent more time on my little quilt block than most students in the class spend on your whole project, AND now want to make 100 more.
I hope you all remember you are not your story, you are really:
and so many good qualities that will change the world.
