TWO CHEEKY MONKEYS SNUGGLING ON THE BED... from That's Sew Kerry

And A Whole Lot Of Shopping!!

So the quilts made it safely across the oceans and found their way to these two cheeky monkeys






And as you can see they loved them!! Look at those smiles and those chubby cheeks, just to beautiful but then I am a very biased Aunty. Something else I am very biased about is how breathing taking The North is, if you have never ventured up there I can't tell you enough how much you should, just don't tell my Granny she won't be pleased if I start sending hoards up there ...

Block of the Month Update from Pointless Quilter

I've  been busy machine quilting 3 quilts (which I will show when the binding is sewn down) so right when I was done with those I got busy working on my Block of the Months.

The first one is the first in the new Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month.  It's a blue and cream holiday themed quilt.  I believe the fabrics are Primitive Gatherings and a bunch of designers design the blocks for it.  I'm only making one block this year instead of the two each like I was able to do last ...

June BOM–Allatoona from Creations by Melinda

I was tied up all last week when the monthly BOM was scheduled so Roxanne and Pat agreed to run it for me.  Thanks!

Here are the photos of the blocks that were shared at the meeting.

0615 - 1

0615 - 2

It is fun to see the various sashing choices.  Some decided to make the pieced sashing and others decided to use single strips for sashing – both work well.

Getting My House In Order from From the Strawberry Patch...

The house in question is this house, the BOM at my LQS. It took some extra-special attention to get it in order, not because it is especially difficult but, rather, because I thought I could talk on the telephone and cut out the pieces at the same time. Apparently I can not do that. You might be able to see some interesting seams... in the background fabric along the roofline and lengthwise

String Blocks & Cozy Afternoon BOM from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

String blocks are fun to make and use up scraps. I pulled several purple strips from my scrap bins, along with some white and greens for accent. I made sixteen 5-inch blocks, stitching the strings diagonally across a muslin base. I like to use the muslin, although you can piece the block without it. I […]

Cozy Afternoon blocks 1 and 2 from The Crafty Quilter

Hey everyone!  I’m so honored to be one of the featured bloggers for Jacquelynne Steves’ Cozy Afternoon Block of the Month.  And I’m really happy that I get to share this month’s blocks, 1 and 2, with you:

Cozy Blocks 1 and 2 main

 

Aren’t they sweet?  I love the applique version (of course), but the nice thing about this BOM is that Jacquelynne gives you options for pieced, applique, or embroidery block centers!  You get to decide what you like best or least.

The block instructions are excellent and I like the techniques Jacquelynne uses for piecing.  It’s not too ...

Moccasin Block of the Month Club - June from Gen X Quilters


Welcome to the Moccasin Block of the Month Club June block!  Today the pattern goes out for this classic combination of piecing methods.
 
This block uses several techniques to make the diamond and star shapes.  We will use half-square triangles, flying geese and diamond-in-the-square techniques to assemble this block.  They add a very nice traditional block to the mix of this quilt.
 
Block #7
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.
 
The blocks are really starting to come together!  Can you see your quilt starting to form?

There are several ...

Daisy, daisy, tell me your answer true... from Not Afraid of Color

The RSC2015 color is green for the month of May.

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?
Check out the little dragonflies and ...

Lacuna Sampler Quilt Pattern from Gen X Quilters


Let me introduce to you the Lacuna Sampler Quilt Pattern.  I'm very proud to show off this quilt. I've been working on it for its big debut at Quilt Market this weekend with the introduction of the new fabric line Pie Making Day by Brenda Ratliff for RJR Fabrics.  

This quilt design came together so easily.  There was just something about these fresh cheery colors that played so well as the "wheels" in the Cheyenne block.  It was one of those "Ah-ha" moments where I was like "That's IT!!!" and I couldn't wait to begin work ...
