In my last post, I mentioned that I had completed my April BOM (block of the month). Today, I finally snapped a pic to post. The pattern is Home in Ohio designed by Cyndi McChesney. Cyndi is a certified teacher through the National Quilting Association and this BOM is offered to members through the guild’s […]read more
I used to cross stitch a lot. That was before I started quilting. So this project started about the time I started quilting. I wish I would have recorded the start date of this. I know that I used to work on it only on Tuesday nights when the Material Girls would meet at Pam's. After we stopped meeting on Tuesdays, I took it to work and swore I'd work on it on my lunch hours. And I did.
After consulting with a friend, I decided to use the left over linen fabric it was counted cross stitched ...

It's been enjoyable to see the trees sprout up this month. I love how each tree is a little different. March's block can still be found for free on Craftsy and also HERE. There's still time to download your free pattern and sew along with us this month. The prize this month has been donated to us by Quilters' Gallery ~ Michele from Quilters' Gallery is donating a copy of her Quilting for Accuracy quilt pattern to 2 lucky winners. All you have to do to win, is post a picture of your block in the flickr group ...
A weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I have been working diligently for the last few weeks to prepare for the next four month’s worth of video taping for The Quilt Show’s block of the month, A-Z for Ewe and Me. I’ve been practicing in front of the mirror, making note cards, stitching 13 blocks with “step outs” (broken down steps for each unit) and I still didn’t think I was prepared enough. Yesterday was the big day, and I spent the morning at Alex Anderson’s studio (yes, THAT Alex Anderson,) being video taped ...read more
Whipped up my San Juan Globetrotting block this week, it went together very quickly.
These are the SAMQG’s block of the month for April. Our group has a pattern posted on our Facebook page. Then, each member makes as many blocks as they want. All the blocks go in a “lottery” and you have as many chances to win, as blocks you’ve brought. Easy. I think many guilds (traditional or modern) make Blocks of the Month or Lotto Blocks this way.
This block is so fast and easy. I really think we’ll have loads of them at the May meeting. As of right now, my name is ...read more
I sat down and finished my Aurifil BOM called Borders by Emily Herrick. I downloaded the pattern when it first went up on the Aurifil blog and started cutting away. As I was cutting I had a feeling that some of the measurements where off, but I didn't listen to myself. I continued cutting.
I am finally caught up with my Wishes Along BOMs. I don't know how it was that I was so busy last month. I don't like getting behind on things because I am afraid I might not be able to finish if I put it off. Now with February and March's blocks, I used up the excess pieces of fabrics and triangle pieces from January's block. I didn't want to accumulate too many scrap pieces. The larger half square triangles I cut out a template to use up the scraps. I hardly had to cut ...read more
I know, I know, it’s April. But, I was only just able to finish the March Block of the Month (BOM) for my Galaxy quilt. The patterns are for members only of the National Quilting Association. This month’s block utilized two different techniques – handwork and machine applique. The star points utilized a stitch and turn […]read more
I am so thrilled to show you the first block of “To Everything There Is A Season”. I have chosen to start with the “Spring Urn” because I am so sure that spring is just around the corner!
“To Everything There Is A Season” is a full sized quilt designed by MTDesigns exclusively for Simple Bird Studio. The quilt consists of twelve 18″ blocks and a center medallion that measures 36″. The outer borders have not yet been designed, but I promise, they will be spectacular!
Here is how it works….For the next 12 months, I will be presenting ...read more

Thanks Wendy and Gay for your generosity.
I hope to be back to my regular sewing and blogging next week.
Да. Это все продолжение прошлогоднего строительства.
Нас было немного, но дворцы получились на славу.
Это компьютерная вышивка, вышивала лично, старалась сделать ее в той же гамме, как и большие зАмки их будущих обладательниц.

I overbooked the Doodle blog for April 1st! So am posting this a little early since I will be doing another posting for the Flags blog hop. I need to pay more attention to these little details. Lets blame it on winter fog.
I was also very, very happy to become a ambassador to Island Batiks and you'll be seeing plenty of batik projects on my blog which I'm sure doesn't surprise anyone.
