Quiltmakers 100 block mag. vol 16

May BOM

This fabric is just so pretty. I have been very happy with the choices that Quilts and Things have chosen so far. I have had some near misses on the amount of fabric but all in all, I have been really enjoying this BOM (satellite style). Just to remind some of you, this is a […]

How do I stay Organized?

BLOCKKEEPERS!! I have been asked a few times now,  ‘How do I keep my blocks organized?’ I talked about this in depth in a former post HERE. With all the blocks that I make, I have found this to be my absolutely favorite way to store my blocks. I tend to work on many projects […]

Block of the Month Update

This year has been full of so many situations out of my control, that I have gotten behind on a lot of things. My Blocks of the Month for example, have been pieced but I just never really found the time to post or share my tutorials and pictures. I feel like I have let […]

Farewell April…….

I can hardly believe how fast this last month has gone by.  This has been such a cold Spring. We finally had three fantastic days in the high 80’s but then we dropped back down into the 60’s. I really need to get outside. I am perpetually behind. Then I sit and think about all […]

March’s Finishes

I cannot believe how fast this month has gone by. I seemed to be spinning out of control with this and that all month long. I had so much fun working on this months goal. I would not have been able to make this beautiful quilt if it hadn’t been for the gifted UFO’s. So […]

March’s One Monthly Goal……

I love the bright colorful fabrics of these blocks and think that this would be a perfect finish for March. I was gifted these unfinished blocks in the #getyourquiltywishesgranted3 last year. It is a Instagram event were you grant wishes for others and in turn you may ask for a wish or two. I have […]

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 […]

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 […]

My First Quilt Along…

I started and finished my first Instagram quilt along. Well, maybe this is my second start, the first being the Quilter’s Planner QAL at the beginning of January (which will end in December 2017). But definitely my first finish. 🙂 I was so looking forward to getting the book and joining in. I ordered the […]

Show N’ Tell

And then there were 12 🙂 I have got a nice rhythm going with the many QAL’s that I am doing. I have found that if I post my pictures on Sunday ….it works out nicely. I have all week to get them made and there is no pressure. I really do not like how […]

Here I go again…

Hexies Hexies and More Hexies

This has been my Summer! I had not realized until just now how many Hexies I have made and received this Summer. I really love handwork and it is so easy to do just about any where. I have bought most of my papers up to this point from Paper Pieces directly: although I have […]

Books Summer and Books

Here it is July and I find myself watching for more fires this year then in the past. We usually always have a hot dry Summer however this year it has been on the cooler and wetter side of things. So you would think we would have a reprieve. Nope! Where am I going with […]
