Welcome to Day 2 of Quiltmaker’s Back to School Party.
Frame by Frame Part 2: Making the Blocks
The blocks all have the same piecing but are made with different fabrics. Cutting instructions were given in Part 1. Now use the patches you cut to make these blocks, following the block assembly diagram and instructions below:
• 12 blocks with Fabric #1
• 9 blocks with Fabric #2
• 5 blocks with Fabric #3
• 1 block with Fabric #4
• 11 blocks with Fabric #5
• 7 blocks with Fabric #6
• 3 blocks with Fabric #7
Join patches A–D as shown in the block assembly diagram above to make a block. Repeat to make the appropriate number of blocks in each fabric; make a total of 48 blocks.

RJR Fabrics provided fabrics from their collection of Handsprays for a fabulous colorwash effect.
Below is the finished RJR quilt. It’s a very interesting piece that holds my attention. The quilt was made by Charlotte Pollard from Galax, Virginia.
Below is the finished Timeless Treasures quilt. What a great fall piece! It was made by Barbara Ensor from Fort Worth, Texas.

Today we have bundles of fabric from RJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures for giveaway. There are three bundles from each company so there will be six winners.
To be entered, please leave a comment by midnight tonight which is Tuesday, Sept. 11 and tell us if you’re a traditional quilter, a modern quilter, an art quilter or some combination. We’ll choose six random winners and announce them here soon. Six winners have been chosen and notified by email. They are Jerry, Nancy, Elma, Lisa, Cindy and Charlotte.
Enjoy making your blocks at any pace you choose and I’ll see you tomorrow for Part 3 of Frame by Frame! More quilts, too!
