GATHERINGS, Part 3

It’s time for all you GATHERINGS stitchers to work on Row 3 by making your Posey Basket Blocks! I wish I had some “real time” in-progress photos of my Gatherings quilt to share, but as we are in the middle of a big move to the west coast PLUS I’m preparing to teach nine classes in Houston at Festival in just two weeks, my basket blocks will have to wait until mid-November.

In the meantime, though, it has been brought to my attention that there is a tiny “errata” in the instructions in American Quilter Magazine this month. The HSTs should be 3″ finished (not 2 1/2″). Good news, though…..the cutting instructions are correct so if you have cut your fabrics they will make 3″ HSTs. There’s always a silver lining, right?

If you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join me in my special GATHERINGS group and share your photos with the members. You can join by clicking HERE or searching for GATHERINGS on Facebook. I’ll look forward to seeing you there!

  1. Kimberly are you moving to the west coast to live out here? Fingers crossed!

  2. Hi Jean! Yes — to the South Bay area of LA!

  3. You know me Kimberly. I got right to it when I got my magazine. I did cut as instructed but thought the HSTs were bigger to trim down so that’s what I did. I just trimmed all the other pieces down and added another background piece to the two sides so my block would measure 12 1/2 inches unfinnished. My row looks great. It just has smaller baskets. Enjoy your time at festival. Also, a safe and easy move.😃
