    Quilts for Rosie - Weekly Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt Along

    Please join us in a Weekly Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt Along working through Carolyn Cullinan McCormick's book Quilts for Rosie - Paper Piecing Patterns from the '40s published by Kansas City Star Books. There are 20 paper pieced blocks in this quilt. You will need to purchase the book to be able to participate. The book retails for approximately $25.95 and is available online at Amazon.com, HomespunHearth.com, EBAY, Joann.com and Quiltfabricstore.com. No patterns or tutorials will be provided and no sign up is required.

    Beginning September 3, 2012, (this will allow everyone time to purchase the book) we would like you to post a picture of your completed block and on each Monday thereafter. We will start with "Mother's Favorite Star" following the list in the book. The 1940's Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt can be made with either 4" or 10" blocks. You have the option of doing as many or as few blocks as you would like.
    1. Mother's Favorite Star
    2. Mona's Choice
    3. The Colorado Quilt
    4. Anna's Choice
    5. The 1941 Nine Patch
    6. Sunlight & Shadows
    7. A Salute to the Colors
    8. Shepherd's Crossing
    9. The Army Star
    10. A Basket Quilt in Triangles
    11. The New Four Pointer
    12. A Quilt Mosaic
    13. Return of the Swallows
    14. The North Star
    15. The Christmas Star
    16. The Spider Web
    17. A Flash of Diamonds
    18. The Kansas Star
    19. Crazy Anne
    20. The Bright Jewel


    This thread will be the "home base" for our Weekly Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt Along. I will be your hostess and Patrice J will be our Moderator. We are here to chat, cheer each other on, share pointers and offer encouragement. We would like everyone to post pictures of their blocks on this same thread to avoid confusion.

    GROUND RULES & GUIDELINES

    As much as everyone hates "rules," it is necessary to lay a groundwork so we all have a clear understanding of what is expected so things can run smoothly. Please take time to read the guidelines included here.

    1. Be kind, there will be NO FLAMING. This is a friendly, encouraging and supportive group. Be patient. Please keep in mind that participants include a wide range of quilting skills from the novice to the master and every level in between. We want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone.

    2. All copyrights will be honored and protected. Because this is a copyrighted book we will not permit uploading or sharing of copies of the templates or files for the blocks used in this book. The decision is based on ethics and because it is much safer from a legal perspective.

    3. This is not a swap. It is a Weekly Paper Pieced Quilt Along which means you are making your own paper pieced sampler quilt. Therefore feel free to select the fabrics you like best.

    4. All blocks are paper pieced.


    I hope everyone will enjoy this Weekly Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt Along as much as I will. Can't wait to get started! See you all in September.

    Sounds like fun. I will likely jump in. I need to order the book though. I may need some assistance picking fabrics appropriate for the era.

    Welcome hopetoquilt. There are several completed quilts in the book that can give you an idea as to the fabrics you might want to use. I know we'll have fun!

    sounds like fun. I will have to see if I can get ahold of the book and if I am not too deep into other projects.

    iwillquilt, I hope you can join us! I'm trying to decide on fabric now. I really like the different blocks and they are paper-pieced!

    My DSIL (quinlog) and I were looking at the first 2 posts and noticed: You went from Hopetoquilt to Iwillquilt. How funny is that. I am going to order the book and I will jump on board in September. I will wait until I get the book to figure out a color scheme and fabrics.

    I'd like to join in. I've been paper piecing the blocks to the Farmers Wife Pony Club quilt and I'm hooked on paper piecing. I ordered the Quilts for Rosie book today and look forward to joining you on this journey.
    Peace-Jan
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.
