Virtual Cookie Exchange! from quiltscapes

'Tis the Season - for love, for family, for joy, oh, and for COOKIES!


Carol (Just Let Me Quilt) has organized this fun virtual exchange of favorite holiday cookies!


My dear husband has fond childhood memories of gathering in the kitchen with his family, making Christmas Spritz cookies and decorating with gumdrops.  When he learned I was going to make a batch, he grabbed his apron and became my kitchen helper.  He jokes that no man has ever been killed while doing the dishes, haha!  He's a keeper!


I don't know about you, but I have not seen gum ...

A Different Kind of January from Heart Desire Creations

The sand is so white and fine – just beautiful!

 

Tried something new this year – came to Florida for the month of January. How lucky that the first week was one of the coldest on record (major sarcasm here).  It was, however, much colder back home.  We knew it wouldn’t be warm beach weather here in Pensacola, but jackets, hats, and gloves for our beach walks?! That’s okay – I came prepared with sewing machine and a project.  Hah! First week and the machine is out of order.  Looks like the screw that holds the needle is broken and won ...

Twinkle Quilt featuring Mountain's Majesty {Four Seasons Blog Hop with Island Batik} from Little Bunny Quilts

Yesterday was the kick-off of Island Batik's Four Seasons Blog Hop and today is my day to share a wintry themed quilt with you featuring the new line, Mountain's Majesty!


Mountain's Majesty is actually composed of multiple colorways, my project uses the fabrics and colors on the top half of the image below.


I received both navy and light blue large cuts with my fat quarter bundle, and decided to use the navy as my background because it reminds me of the dark starry skies in the wintertime! So off I went to create some star blocks ...

Dot Crazy Blog Hop and Giveaway! from Goer

Welcome!

I'm so excited to be here for the Dot Crazy Blog Hop with Benartex. These vibrant, cheerful designs by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr were so fun to work with.

Check out Weeks and Bill's fussy cutting video tutorial.

My table runner is made of three blocks and finished at about 10" x 30". It is quilted with 50 wt Aurifil #2600 (Dove ...

Christmas Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

Christmas is such a fun time for decorating, and doing special tablescapes for friends is at the top of the list.  I’ve been having sewing days to get a big quilt top done for Quilts of Valor, and we’ve been doing pot luck lunches.  I am blessed with a lot of friends, too many to have all at once, so I get to have more fun with more sew days.  Certainly we need a pretty table to enjoy our lunch, and I could take care of two goals at once, as I needed a new tablescape for today ...

Snickerdoodle Hop from Gray Barn Designs

Carol from Just Let Me Quilt came up with a wonderful blog hop idea for the holidays: a Virtual Cookie Exchange. She had us at cookies. Follow the flour dust trail….

Our mother is a terrific baker and one of her specialties is the Snickerdoodle: a bit crispy on the outside, chewy in the middle and coated with a sweet cinnamon and sugar crust.

DIY Gegen den Novemberblues - Hirschkissen from Quiltmanufaktur


Dorthe von Lalala Patchwork hat mich zu meiner großen Freude auch dieses Jahr wieder gefragt, ob ich Lust hätte, etwas zu DIY gegen den Novemberblues beizutragen. In den beiden letzten Jahren hatte ich den Swoonstar Miniquilt und die Streifenkissen nach Paul Smith zu diesem tollen Blog Hop beigesteuert. Also klar habe ich Lust! Das Motto alleine reizt schon, sich was schönes, kuschliges auszudenken, um die grauen und trüben Gedanken hinwegzufegen!

Habt ihr schon die schönen Beiträge verfolgt, die seit Anfang November bei diesem Blog Hop präsentiert wurden? Wenn nicht, dann könnt ihr die Liste mit den Links am Ende dieses ...
