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…

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 […]

It is good to try new things as I have done here…….

I just cannot past up a good challenge. In this case it was a challenge in using a new product…..Kraftex.It comes in three colors: white, black and tan. It is quite strong. I tried to tear it and had no luck in doing so.  I used this when I made my wallet (in the above […]
