    I am preparing a workshop for making Chimneysweep quilts. This pattern is super simple and looks great no matter how it's set.

    The first pic is a bunch of red and white blocks that I plan to set straight with white sashing, so the blocks just float.

    I plan another Chimneysweep, which will be scrappy and set on point.

    And then there's this one, which I just I just finished hand quilting and binding. Sssssh, don't tell anybody. It's just a patterned fabric from Windham's Clara Barton collection, which I simply bordered and hand quilted. Voila. Instant antique, made while you wait. LOL!

    You absolutely can do this.

    Chimneysweep is easier than it looks! It has no corners to match up within the block.

    Just sew in rows starting in one corner and sewing down row by row. The directions on this website are for a 10 inch block.

    I'm making 3 different samples. I'll post pix when I'm done.

    Meanwhile take a look here. >>>
    http://www.quiltindex.org/index.php

    Hit the SEARCH button and type Chimney Sweep. Pages and pages of eye candy show up there. You can see how totally different the block looks depending on the setting.

    =sigh= I love looking at quilts.
