Current Quilt Project .... Kansas Sampler

Designed by Maria McKenzie, quilt designer and co-owner of First City Quilts in Leavenworth. Consider this a mystery-style quilt as we reveal one block each issue, with the final completed quilt revealed when it is time to set the blocks together.

 

According to Maria, this quilt is designed to be a scrappy quilt - so dig through that fabric stash to find your materials. Or visit one of our advertising shops to purchase fabric. We are showing the blocks in two color ways -- one traditional and one more modern -- to show what a difference color choices can make in the finished quilt. This quilt features skill building blocks to build confidence in the beginning quilter as well as a chance to brush up some quilt skills for the more seasoned quilter. 

The first block is a very traditional Courthouse Steps block. As many quilters know it is important to put a label on our quilts, but many of us fail to do so. This block can be used as a signature block or label by using the center rectangle to write or embroider the quilt's information. If you have any problems with any of the blocks in the program, please feel free to call the shop at 913-682-8000 or stop by and the ladies at First City Quilts will be happy to help you.
