Not a comic strip reference but Block of the Month, Pillow of the Month, Block of the Week and Guild Block of the Month. Oh and I finished a baby quilt and finished knitting a pillow. First the Block of the Months.

And Farm Girl Vintage Block of the Week
And this is our guild's Block of the Month.
This is May's cow block... in greens!
I call her Daisy for the flowers on her head and her nose.
Sorry about the wrinkles but honestly I couldn't be around this block long enough to really iron it.
This is an Adolescent block... it refused to work with me, would not do what I wanted it to do, did not want to do ANYTHING I asked of it. Rip. Rip. Rip again.
Let's just look at the pretty fabrics, shall we?

I purchased more batik fabric for the Vacation Time Block of the Month Quilt. It is a beautiful blue batik fabric from Pat Sloan's line of Moda Fabric -- One for You, One for Me Batiks.
I took a photo with the other fabrics and the quilt blocks.
It is going to be perfect with the other blues!
I ordered one yard, but I hit the "End of the Bolt Jackpot"! I received 1 1/4 yards! Super cool!
I washed and pressed it. I put it into the container with the other fabrics and quilt blocks. It will be ... read more
Finally. It seems like I haven't finished anything because I haven't posted, but that's not true. I finished (almost) 14 quilt blocks for my Material Girls Block exchange which is due in June. All I have left to do is some fancy stitching on 3 Crazy quilt blocks. (We all put our 'order' in on what kind of block we wanted.) And then I have to sign each block. Can't show pictures though.
Is anyone following along with this year's BOM from Buttermilk Basin? It's a freebie that Stacy has designed and posts via her Facebook page and blog each month. These little wool applique blocks are just so cute! Here are my first 3 blocks...

My block of the month is called Double Star, which finishes at 12″ x 12″.
Be sure to hop on over to Alyce’s blog for the Double Star block tutorial, plus see what the block looks like in repeat, and check out Alyce’s version in an alternate colorway. If that’s not enough, there’s also an extra bonus for EQ users!

Have you had a chance to browse QuiltAlong.net? If you've never been to QuiltAlong.net before, Terri Ann had the wonderful idea to host a site for those of us who enjoy a good quilt along (QAL). The site is a directory of current and past quilt alongs, along with a list of sewing or quilting link parties. The site launched in January of this year.
HALLO LIEBE LADIES! Heute ist Monatsende und somit wieder Zeigetag bei der lieben Katrin@Cattinka. Wir nähen die Muster von Claudia Hasenbach @Claudias Quilts.read more
I'm delighted to say that I have finally finished the top of "Your Place or Mine?'.
These are the best photos I could do by myself - it's too big to hang on the clothes line!
and another photo taken with a different camera - it's very hard to capture the colours accurately.
I took this before I sewed the borders on, but it really shows how vibrant the felt is in this quilt. I love how the Kaffe fabrics complement the felt too.
Here's how it will look on our bed eventually:
Moccasin Sampler Kits are being featured on the front page slideshow banner over at Missouri Star Quilt Co. If you've been thinking about joining in the fun for this year's BOM, take a look at these kits.
The kit includes all the fabric to make the quilt top, binding yardage and all 12 printed patterns in the Moccasin set. The fabrics in the kit are the same RJR Cotton Supreme Solids I used to make my sample. If you've never worked with RJR Solids before, you should give it a try. They were a dream to piece ... read more
