The Plaid Block and a Tutorial from Jan's Quilts



This month is my turn to present the Block of the Month at the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild meeting.  Several of us take turns presenting and there are some who never do it, we're all different, but I love helping out.  My idea for this block came from the Boulder MQG's BOM programs, July Block.  The center of their block is different so I modified it with a new tutorial.  You can find it here.

As usual, two of the blocks will be donated to the TVMQG's BOM program to make Charity Quilts, and two will ...

fanfare . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

When I look back over the blog content for the last year and a half, it really makes me sad.  My little hiatus cost me the published 'memories' of what I'd done, both in and out of the quilty world.  Normally, I'd have shared the fan BOM that my guild was doing . . . the fan is our logo . . . a different fan block each month (for a total of nine), getting more technically difficult to piece as the year went along. It started easy, with this little fan . . .
And ended with a Cleopatra's Fan, that I opted out of ...

THIS GAL IS HEAD OF THINGS! from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Look at what Charity made!  She completed blocks 1 and 2 of the First Blush BOM that starts at the Attic Window Quilt Shop in September.  Charity chose the yellow background.  But you can chose the background you want.  I think I'm going to use white....or maybe a small print.  Haven't decided yet.  Call the Attic Window Quilt Shop and sign up for this fun BOM.  The books are in and you need to decide on a background fabric, so call the shop soon.  September will be here before you know it.  The group meets on the ...

Warm Days, Cool Hues from From the Strawberry Patch...

Ever since we returned from our recent adventures, both up north and our more local grandchildren-focused ones, I have been playing catch-up; there's been little (if any) actual time in the sewing room! I did need to spend some time constructing the latest block-of-the-month before the next session rolls around already--next week! So go the days of summer! This year my LQS is focusing on Deb

The Giving Quilts are complete from Jan's Quilts


I'm so happy that I can check these as finished.  I'm biased, but I think they turned out really well.  These are my 4th and 5th finishes for 2018!



 Each quilt is different.  I made the quilt tops in February as samplers for my guild.  We'd been "building 12.5" blocks for a year and I presented these as a prototype for assembly of the blocks into charity quilts.  If you want to make something similar, the tutorial is here.

Stats:

Started: Feb 2, 2018
Finished: July 2, 2018
Size: 59" x 73"

July's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles...




July is here and boy is it hot!  Our air conditioner has crapped out so it is especially warm around here. I have every fan that we own plugged in and the dogs have discovered how nice and cool the ceramic tile is. I have not resorted to laying on the bathroom tile yet, but I can be found with my head in the freezer. Hubby is getting qoutes for a new AC and the resounding remark from everyone so far is 'Wow! That sure is an old unit. I've never seen one that old before."  Our guess is ...

The BOM blocks for the next two months are complete! Yay for me. These Strip Step blocks are fast and easy, and a real scrap-buster.  The Pres. and VP of my guild decided to make this a two-month endeavor; taking summer into consideration.  I'll probably make some more before the August meeting.

You can find the Strip Step tutorial here.

At Last! from Jan's Quilts


 I hadn't touched my sewing machine in over two months.  Life and travel got in the way.  In April I went to Croatia and loved it.  If there weren't so many unexplored places on my list, I'd go back in a heartbeat.  I was home for a couple of weeks and left on a three-week trip visiting Norway, London, and NYC.  I go to NYC annually for Book Expo America, but I'm always open for an excuse to visit the city that never sleeps.

Well, now I'm home for the next 10 or 11 weeks ...

Sew Berry Sweet from From the Strawberry Patch...

I had amassed a nice collection of various hexagons following our last block-of-the-month series. I knew how I wanted to set them together, and yet, they languished on the design wall. I had a stretch of a few days last week with nothing else on the calendar and began the process. I was excited about the prospects of this becoming a flimsy.  Row by row I worked, since each block had been cut
