Year of Scrappy Triangles

Year of Scrappy Triangles

My first 20 blocks of this fantastic sew along!! This is going to be so much fun to play with all the different layouts!! I will have to try harder not to use repeat fabrics. I have enough scraps of green that it shouldn’t be a issue. But that Owl is just so cute (with […]

MONTHLY

A New Block Of The Month

I cannot believe that it is already almost the middle of February. I know that I have been busy but where has the time gone?  I was so happy to see this months block of the month in the mail Thursday. I really enjoy sharing this tutorial with you. I will be doing three different […]

Goals

February already…

I missed the deadline last month to get in on The One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts: so I made sure that I marked the date down for this month. I am hoping that this will help keep me organized and on task. I have decided that is one of my personal goals this […]

Goals for 2018….

   Just in the nick of time 🙂 I have been very busy organizing my up coming projects and working on clearing out my old inventory. I just revamped my website which took way longer then I had wanted: as these things tend to do. So with that said my FIRST GOAL for 2018 is […]

Building Friendships one Quilt Block at a time…..

It has been awhile since I have worked on my Hobo Quilt by Debra G. Henninger. Here are the first three blocks that I wanted to share with you. I am using  my older European Linen Plaid and some of my precious Australian Aboriginal fabrics. I decided to use the raw edge appliqué method with […]

Cleaning One’s Machine…..

This is what happens when you haven’t cleaned your machine or changed the needle. Ugly stitches!! The tension is all a mess and the needle is dull. I have a vintage DAQ 555-3 that sits in a oil bath. It is a Juki and a real work horse!! I love my machine but I haven’t […]

Where has the time gone?

I cannot believe how quickly time has gotten away from me. I remember the snow taking forever to melt and Spring coming so late. Then BAM it was Summer and the never ending smoke. I know that I told more then one person “This must be how a ham feels in the smoke house!” It […]
