Medallion Quilt Month 5 from Stitchin at Home

The block this month is the Broken Dishes Block. The Broken Dishes block is one of the oldest known traditional quilt blocks. I've wondered at the name. Doing a bit of research, I discovered that broken dishes were a traditional grave site decoration used by African American slaves.

Broken Dishes Block
This is a 12 1/2'' unfinished or 12'' finished block.

 All seams allowances are 1/4''

Cutting:

Dark fabric:  A  4-  2 1/2 '' x 2 1/2''

Playing Catch-Up from Jan's Quilts

I just realized that I've made two sets of  TVMQG BOM and not posted them.  I just made another set, so I'm playing catch-up and posting three sets in one post.

First, here are the blocks for March, the Four-Leaf Clover Block.




Next were the Modern Movement Blocks for April.






And finally, the Double Pinwheel Block for May.


All of the blocks are 12.5 inches square.  As I make the BOMs, I'm making 2 for our guild and 2 for a future quilt.  I'm always planning ahead.
May your bobbins always be full,

The Big Hex Flimsy from From the Strawberry Patch...

The Big Hex ~ 44"(h) X 52"(w). I have been inspired by this quilt/play mat for little ones that I found on Pinterest as a way to combine my own recently constructed hexie blocks (most recent BOM at my LQS) into a similar project for a baby gift; the hardest part, for me, was finding suitable quality pom-pom trim, I am super picky about that! I found some that is absolutely perfect, it is a

May's Block are Out! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

May is my favorite month,  it's my birthday month! Growing up my birthday was extra special because I got to share my birthday month with grandma. Our special days were only a day apart! I didn't always live close to my grandparents. Not until I was 15 did we live close enough to see them for every holiday and birthdays. Before that we lived pretty far away and would visit them in the summer for three weeks and they would come visit us for Christmas. So on birthdays we usually got a special package in the mail and ...

Jo Dixey's embroidery from Wendy's Quilts and More

Hexed! (And A Winner!) from From the Strawberry Patch...

I have been hexed; yes, it's true, the textbook definition is as follows: to put a hex (a spell, especially an evil spell) on. The current Block-of-the-Month at my LQS has just begun, this session's theme is "Happy Hexagons". I simply cannot stop! The only explanation for this obsessive behavior must be a hex, although I certainly wouldn't call it evil, I am having too much fun. Armed with a

Birds on Parade Bag from Alamosa Quilter

I'm working on a new store sample. This pattern recently came in.


I have the outer bag portion put together, almost everything is appliqued in place (I still need to add the eyes for the small birds), and I've started on the embellishment embroidery.


I'm also working on my Sue Spargo Fresh Cut 2017 BOM, but I'm not permitted to share any photos of it until summer 2018 when the pattern will be released. All I will say is that it is gorgeous and I'm enjoying working on it. Between me, employees and customers there ...

Month one has arrived and as you can see I went for the Template and Fabric option.
