“Inspired by the growing number of crafting blogs and the emergence of vibrant, modern fabrics in the quilting industry, quilter John Adams taught himself how to use a sewing machine in 2004 and hasn’t looked back. He started his popular blog, QuiltDad.com, in 2008 to share his love of patchwork with others. John lives in North Carolina with his husband, twin daughters, son, and a slightly crazy German Shorthair Pointer.”

Take a look at the amazing bundle John chose for us

We’ve been busy at our social Sew’In sessions at the shop this last week making quilt blocks to send over to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild.

Heart Blocks in Multiple Sizes

The pattern we used is the heart block by Alison of Cluck Cluck Sew, we made 10″ finished blocks as requested. You can make any heart shaped block with a low volume background as long as the block measures 10.5″ unfinished. The UK point of contact for collection of the blocks is Esther Moorey, you can find her on Instagram @EstherMoorey.
