Welcome to my stop on the OnceUpon Story Row Along!
I was so excited to see the theme for this Row Along and had to jump in and volunteer when Marian announced the upcoming Row Along. She has been doing this Row Along for 5 years now! It’s been so much fun to read all of the posts from the many incredible designers as they worked on their designs and shared their ideas.
The list of today’s blogs are:
Here is my block, Rapunzel;
When Marian announced the theme, this was the first idea I had for a block. The design was amended several times and slowly came together. It is horizontally oriented and finishes at 9″ x 18″ in the quilt design.
When my daughter was a wee one I used to read her this story at bedtime. It was her favourite story and she used to finger comb my hair when I was reading to her. At the time my hair was longer than my waist! Such fond memories!
We were told that Northcott was sponsoring us and donating fabric for us to use. I already had picked out my fabric. In fact, one of the reasons I chose Rapunzel was because I had come across a package of Northcott’s Woodland Strips recently when I was tidying my sewing space. I have been saving this collection of 2 1/2″ strips for that special project! This was it. The rock called to me to make the tower for Rapunzel’s prison home. Then in my stash I found some other fabrics for the lake, sky, and forest. For some reason the selvedge edges are missing with the information for the supplier. I can only guess these fabrics must have been gifted to me because I try to always leave the selvedge edge on until it becomes scraps in my scrap storage bins.
The fabric choices are up to you. I used my Northcott strips as much as possible. It’s fun working with Pre-Cuts!

The link has now been fixed thanks to Marian’s excellent tutelage. 😄
You might notice that I have actually made this block twice. Once after I finished drafting the pattern. The second time was done to double check my measurements.
I love the Northcott fabrics but will be visiting my LQS to pick up new fabrics for my Once Upon a Story Quilt for my great granddaughter who is due in December. I have been collecting the blocks patterns and planning the baby quilt I will make once I can sew again!
The giveaway for my day is being hosted on Marian’s post today due to some technical difficulties I am having. You can go to Seams to be Sew for the giveaway entry link.
