Are you ready for some FUN in 2015? Join me for my FREE Mystery Block of the Month(BOM)! It's called VACATION TIME ... let me tell you how it works!
FreeQuiltPatterns.info asked me to design, write, make and host this FREE to YOU Block of Month. We did it in 2014, called Globetrotting, did you love that one?
This year the quilt is about the same size, and it's setting is different, but the concept is the same.
- From Jan to Sept 2015 I'll give you the pattern for a block in the quilt.
- October 2015 ...
Sorry about the poor quality photos but it's been nothing but clouds in the Sunshine State for the past several days. I spent the weekend finishing up on some block-of-the-month programs I joined this year. This is the last block in the Sugar Block Club with Amy Gibson. All year I've been waiting for the right block to fussy cut a flower and December was the month.
Here are all twelve of the blocks. I haven't decided how I'm going to set them yet, I might just make a few more blocks. The fabric was a ... read more
How are you enjoying the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM so far? I've been having such a good time with it, and it's especially fun to be one of the first quilters to get the pattern so I can put together a sample block to give you some ideas for yours!
Jacquelynne Steves is releasing her pattern for the second block today, and to celebrate, I'm having another giveaway! But more on that later.
Here is Block #2 pieced in the fabrics I chose, Soho Chic. Winter has decended upon us and we've been dealing with snow ... read more

Here is my finished Globetrotting top.
It was even warm enough to get a picture of the completed top outside.
I added an extra sashing strip and a row of four patches to two sides to make the quilt rectangular since that makes it a better size for a Quilt ...
Finally finished the last row of my BOM from Quilt Doodle Doodles. The final row for the whole quilt…yippee! I think the little bulbs turned out so cute. The look almost real.
I’m really going to try and get the quilt finished for the holidays and onto my bed for Christmas Eve. You can find the pattern here http://quiltdoodledesigns.blogspot.ca/p/bom-2014.htmlread more
By Wendy Sheppard with fabric by Lynette Anderson called Pocketful of Daisies
I did want to show you the finished quilt that will be offered as a BOM at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co. in the new year. I am in the process ( you may remember the houses in an earlier post) of completing the sample for the store.
My pictures did not do the quilt justice so I wanted you to see just how beautiful it is.
These are my 3 little cottages completed and sewn together, picket fences and all. It all looks very complex, however we are breaking ...read more
Throughout the past year, I've had several quilt shops and guilds contact me about running the Vice Versa Block of the Month Club locally. I am happy to announce that I now have the entire Vice Versa Sampler Block of the Month Quilt Pattern in PDF form available for both of these groups.
The new block is the one on the far left at the top. I haven't worked on this since May. You can read my last post about this project by clicking here. I believe the deadline for getting entered in the prize drawing is the end of November. So my goal is to have the top done by then so I can enter. I've only got three more blocks to do then assemble them all. Surely I can get that ...
I will be hosting a quilt-along here on the blog for Moccasin Block of the Month Club. It is so much fun to see others progress and ...
I finished quilting the Pat Sloan Globetrotting Block of the Month. Actually finished it last week. Here you go with a couple of close ups of the quilting. My original thought was just to do an all over design, but I just couldn't get myself to do it.
Where did October go?!? It’s time for me post the 8th block of “To Everything There Is A Season”, a BOM I launched back in April. If you are new to my blog and you haven’t seen the blocks yet, here they are! All of the patterns are available for purchase on my website Simple Bird Studio. The patterns are available either as a digital pattern (which I will email to you) or as a paper pattern (which I will mail to you). The choice is yours.

I love how quickly these blocks came together. I can't wait to finish the quilt top with next month's block.
Geez, I almost ditched the post today. Yes, on day 5 of a 30 day posting commitment. Pathetic. What to write about then?
I know, my daughter mentioned to me that Vladimir Putin was chosen again (two years running!) as the most powerful person in the world by Forbes magazine. Perfect. I'll just post a pic of Vlad and call it quits.
Yikes! Day 3 of NaBloPoMo and I almost forgot to post. I was clueless as I can't show what I've been working on today as it's part of a Secret Santa swap that I signed up for in January. I won't do that again! It's been a lot of work, or I have made it a lot of work. Plus the fact that we did not know who our partner was until most of the gifts were made/purchased. I did not like the anonymity.
