The fifth Sunday of March and we come to the end of another Stitch Along challenge. I had a lot of fun with this and was even going to continue on and make more blocks, enough to make a quilt. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen right now.

Recently Connie from Colorado joined my online class "Knot of Squares" aka Trinity Celtic Knot. The design pattern is by Deborah Cohen who designs patterns for us at Arbee Designs and she gave me the go ahead to write up a class which offers additional construction options and gives lots of details in how to construct it successfully. In fact, I included three different construction methods and three border variations to offer each student their preferred method of construction and desired look.

My March Stitch Along week 4

This week I have been having fun with more stitching. Stitching is my favorite part of course, although lately you'd be thinking that cutting up was seeing as I've been doing a lot of that in challenges. It's fun and it takes you unexpected places which just adds to the challenge.... well I'm getting a little off track here so let's take a look at what I did this week for my Stitch Along.

Journal Quilts gallery

All quilts tell a story especially art quilts and journal quilts, which are usually a series of small quilts that reveal a longer tale. Often one journal quilt leads onto the next and it is amazing how their tale unravels. Lily Kerns class Journal Quilts starts this weekend and she shared with us, some journal quilts made from a few of her students who have taken this workshop. In this course, you make three small journal quilts to tell your story.
