Summer Sampler Series : Kansas Dust Storm

Wow, today is the last block of the Summer Sampler Series! Head on over the Lee’s blog for a tutorial on block twelve, the Kansas Dust Storm quilt block. As always, feel free to post your photos and any questions in the Flickr group.

I want to thank everyone for quilting along with us. I have really appreciated your wonderful comments and emails over the last 4 weeks. So many people, myself included, learned new skills and accomplished things they never would have tried before.

I had a great time cohosting this quilt along with Katie and Lee. We have never met in person and tackling something as big as a quilt along, with a lot of people depending on you, is no small task. We were all required to figure out the block construction on our own – quite the challenge at times. They both have worked so hard, been so dependable, I can’t say enough good things about teaming up with them. Big thanks to you Katie and Lee!

I do plan on assembling my quilt top soon. I just need to decide if I want to do sashing, cornerstones, etc. Lee plans on having her top done by next Friday, so check back then for more details!

Updated: Here’s my last block! Now to think about the top…

    this has been lovely and i have learnt a lot! just a quick question/ request–do you have any suggestions of how to make three more block on variations of the ones that you have, or even better is it possible to request for three more block in the sampler series?
    I would love to learn more, and make a 4 X 4 Blocks quilt!

    I’m a wee bit behind (usually the case with quilt-alongs), but I am determined to catch up! Thanks for all the work in helping to host this.

    I was a little bit behind so I rearanged the Minnesota block a bit but managed to catch up with the rest. I want to thank you for all your work that you put in this QAL. I loved it and learned so much. It´s kind of sad that it is over.
