Catching up on RSC18 from Needle and Foot

First of all, thanks to everyone for the get well wishes.  I am feeling better and have spent the last day or two getting caught up on things.  Whenever I spend time down due to some illness or other, it is always so satisfying to get back to normal and have a regular day.  Do you know what I mean?  It makes me appreciate normal.

squared away

Today I am sharing my RSC18 projects to date.  I finished the green blocks on the last day of March but never took pictures or posted them. The block for March is called Red Cross ...

Picnic Quilt (previously known as BOM HST) from Wendy's Quilts and More

Last week I started hand quilting my Picnic Quilt.  I've decided to call it a Picnic Quilt because it reminds me of mum's quilt that we sat on at picnics when I was growing up in the 1970's.

Mum made most of our clothes, and many of the scraps were included in the picnic quilt. I remember sitting on that quilt and identifying all the fabrics I liked in the quilt.

It's grown bigger than this now

My quilt is made from Half Square Triangle blocks that I won at Capital Quilters Block of the Month ...

Batik Bliss for Cosy Kiwi Kids from Wendy's Quilts and More

A finished quilt ready to donate to a local charity.

I won these Batik Bliss blocks at a Capital Quilters' meeting back in March 2016.  Exactly two years later the quilt is finished!


The blocks were originally 10" square, but I wanted to be adventurous so I trimmed some of them smaller and mixed them all up.  You can read more about my process and inspiration here.


A number of long arm quilters at our guild quilt charity tops for free, so I gave it to Tina Mills and she kindly quilted it for me.  I put the binding on ...

green in the rainbow from Making A Lather

It's March already and time for green in the rainbow scrap challenge at soscrappy.
I do have a bunch of 2 1/2 inch strips I will use for my soul searching quilt.


I have been gone for a week and I only took snow days with me. So the best I could do for Jos Country junction challenge and block of the month, was to cut out and web another block for my Christmas sampler BOM. But progress is progress.




While in Buffalo, we tried to experience local flavors. Most diners and cafes served at a liquor bar ...

Squared Away in Purple from Needle and Foot

It is already mid-February and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month is purple. On Tuesday I set aside my doll quilt projects and pulled out my purple scrap bin. It was time to get to work on some scrappy piecework.

The second block for the Squared Away BOM, hosted by Mari of Academic Quilter and Angela of So Scrappy, was released last Saturday.  For this month, Mari chose a block called The Wishing Ring. Let me say, this is a great block – not fussy at all!  My kind of quilting.  </p>

CMM February Blocks from My Quilt Infatuation

It's officially the middle of the month, and that means that it's time to link up your Classic Meets Modern blocks for February.  This month's blocks included the Nested Churn Dash, which is the only other 24" block (finished size) in the quilt.


The largest churn dash is a great place to show off a big print, and I am in love with these orange roses.  The different shades of orange are so lush, and the photo doesn't quite capture it properly.  Given the size of this block, it goes together pretty quickly, and I even ...
