It is hard to believe we are already at the final blocks of the Sew Sweet Simplicity Block of the Month.

I built two copies each of all six blocks.


Here is block 4 and bonus block 2.


And here are all twelve together.

Next comes a setting plan and final assembly of the top.  It is so exciting!  How is yours coming along?  I look forward to seeing all of them.

In the meantime, you can leave a comment here and at the other participating blogs for a chance to win more great prizes.  Jacquelynne is so generous with ...

Ich habe viele der vorgesehenen Blöcke mit Motiven 
ausgetauscht an die ich zur Winterzeit denke,
und/oder Blöcke die ich besonders schön finde
 und gerne nähen wollte.

New Learned BOM from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

I get P3 Designs newsletter but apparently I haven't read it. It just happened that I was reading others blogs and checking new ones out when I came across someone mentioning P3 Designs and thought I need to go to the website and see if anything new is out and sure enough she has a new BOM that is free for a  month, then it will cost.

Here is the layout.

And these are the months blocks.

If you are interested in this, hurry and go to the website, then to shopping/downloadable patterns and add the pattern to ...

New Year, New Priorities from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

I have been on a hiatus without a post since mid-October. I decided that the part of my life that I commit to quilting was using too much time for blogging – reading and writing. I haven’t been to my feedly account either. Although, I follow a few blogs via email, so I haven’t been […]

Block of the Month Updates and a finish from Pointless Quilter

The finish first.

Last October I took a class from our guild from Melinda Bula.  This was a bugger for me to quilt, but it's done.  Yeah!

I've been working on Fat Quarter Shops Designer mystery quilt for the last 8 months.  I got a little behind at the holidays and caught up this weekend.  Here are blocks 7 & 8.  (I am making 2 of each block so I'll end up with 2 quilts at the end of the year.)

Then they decided to have a free block of the month that has some adorable blocks and ...

January Blocks from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

It has began. Yep, 2015 heralds the start of the Aurifil Designer BOM and Pat Sloan's BOM. This year The Aurifil designers are making mini quilts. Gundrun's Flurry block/mini is 15" x 15" finished. You can find the block and Pat Sloan's interview with Gundrun here

Spot the mistake in my Flurry block. I think I will leave it there as a humility block.  The material used is Hawthorne Threads own design called Bengal. I am in love with the intricate sketches in delft blue and white.

My second mystery block for the month is Down ...

Moccasin BOM – Lady of the White House from Childlike Fascination


This is the first time I’ve done a block of the month and I’m excited that I’m on the ball for the first month (11 more to go!) and phew was it a doozie!

This block is based on a traditional block called Lady of the White House. It’s so neat combining little checkerboards with the pinwheels and the stripes.

It took a lot longer than I expected but it’s also cause I’m accustomed to doing a majority of the cutting for a quilt upfront not on a block-by-block basis. I know my blocks ...

Design Wall #2 from Shared Creativity

Week two has been pretty fruitful in the backing department.  I was able to finish two backs and bindings.  Now just to get them quilted and finished.  One is going off to the LAQ for quilting so that one is virtually done in my mind.

The second quilt will be hand quilted.  It is kinda strange not to have a hand quilt project sitting on my couch at the moment.  I finished the last of my hand quilting last month.  The one that I want to do is a beast!  It is 104 inches square.  This is a BOM by ...

Above is block two of the Applique BOM that is starting this month at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I think block one is at the shop.  The pattern is Fresh Picked Posies by Becky Goldsmith & Linda Jenkins of Piece O’ Cake Designs.   This is just one of several BOMs happening at the shop this year.  You might also be interested the many other classes and happenings at the shop.  The NEWSLETTER is now available for you to look at any time or download for your convenience.  Just click on the Hat Lady on the sidebar to get your copy ...

Welcome! It's the very beginning of the My Favorite Things mystery BOM. I'm so excited!!! For January there are two blocks that we will be working on, a snowman and a Christmas tree. Two of my favorite things. They are both applique. In fact all of the blocks with the exception of December's will be applique.  As I mentioned, it will be a mystery quilt but I have let you in on the layout of the quilt. This quilt can be done scrappy if you want to bust your fabric stash. Each month I will offer a ...

To Everything There Is A Season…Block 10 from Simple Bird Applique

Happy New Year!  Here is the 10th block of “To Everything There Is A Season”, a  BOM I launched last April.

cardinal for blog

If you haven’t seen the blocks, here they are!  The blocks are available on my website Simple Bird Studio.


I am sooooo close to finishing Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”!  Once the border is finished, I just have to do the two corner blocks.  Then add the sawtooth border.  Then quilt it.  Then bind it.  Remember, one stitch at a time!!



Til next time….

Lovely Drunkard from Quilting by the River

I finished up a small quilt that I had pieced in November and blogged about here. The blocks are 3 ½ inch Drunkard's Path blocks and the fabric is Lovely by Debbie Beaves. It is always handy to have a "few" unfinished projects around........especially when you want to try something new. I bought a bolt of Hobbs Heirloom batting and have been anxious to try it out.  I have a 30 yard bolt and when I took it out of the expanded. Right now I have it sitting in my small laundry room. One more room ...

Whats Up from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

This is not up yet on my design wall but it will be. Now it will take a year before it will look like this but I am so in love with this design the thought of having to wait a year seems cruel but it's really not like I will be getting right to it anyway with that UFO'S list I have.

Aurifil Designer Blocks 2014 finish from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

December marked the last month of a fabulous year of blocks from the Aurifil Designer BOM 2014. To finish the quilt I framed each block in a spool and set them on point with a specially designed spool block in the centre.

The words, "Love is the thread that binds all quilters" is embroidered on the block.

The PDF pattern for the centre spool block can be found here and the on-point lay out design instructions can be found at or

Sewing Machine is Buzzing! from Mountain Quiltworks

Happy New Year everyone!  I've spent some time this week coming up with My Plan for 2015.  I won't bore you with it because it's subject to change (always include that clause in your plans - helps alleviate stress, anxiety and frustration!).

It's a good plan, one that I'm happy with, and one that is workable without over-due expectations. I like it!

First off on My Plan for 2015 is to restock my Etsy Shop, Mountain Quiltworks, with microwavable hot packs.  This weekend I've been stitching and stitching and stitching. So far I've completed ...

Chain Piecing For Accuracy from From the Strawberry Patch...

When I'm putting together most blocks based on rows ( I am using a nine patch here for demonstration purposes, but any row-based block can be put together similarly; four, nine or sixteen patch block) I usually put them together with the following chain piecing method. I will lay the block out in front of me with the squares or pieced units in their designated spots. I join the left row to the

The big day has finally arrived!  I am extremely excited to kick off the Moccasin Block of the Month Club with you today.  I have been working hard to take us on another fun adventure this year.  Here we go!  Today, the January Block Pattern for Moccasin is now available.

Generally, we will be making 2 blocks each month.  One in the yellow colorway and one in the orange colorway.  The first blocks are very similar, but not exactly the same.  These blocks are based off a classic block called Lady of the White House.  They have a neat windmill ...
