A Seam Ripper Weekend from D is for Dovey

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 ...

Sew Sweet Simplicity Giveaway and Block #2 from Mountain Quiltworks

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 ...

Bonnie's Hunters Mystery Clue 1, a Christmas Quilt and BOM from Pointless Quilter

Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery started this week (Here's a link to her website and the mystery.) and I was able to spend all day yesterday working on my blocks since I got all my Christmas decorations up on Friday.  I only made one change on her colors this year.  I am using red instead of pink because I had a lot of red left over from my Farmer's Wife quilt. 

 I quilted my granddaughter's Christmas quilt very simply with straight lines and just outlined the letters and the deer.

 But decided to add a few snowflakes ...

Globetrotting Top Finished from Alamosa Quilter

With mom's help, I managed to beat the end of November deadline and get the top done. She cut a bunch of 2.5" squares for me and kept me company in my sewing room. I'll show you more of what we did last week throughout this week.

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 ...

Daisy Chain Cottage from 365 days of wonderful

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 ...

Back to Globetrotting from Alamosa Quilter

In an effort to have something to show you I made up block 6 for my Globetrotting quilt.

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 ...

My latest from Pointless Quilter

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.

I also worked on some Christmas gifts.  Not gifts for me to give, but gifts to make for other people to give.  After all the guild boutique items was shown on my Facebook and blog, my sister and two cousins asked for some stuff for their family for Christmas.  How can ...

Yankee Puzzles Blocks from Lily Patch Quilts

I have been making the Aurifil BOM for each month and loved it, but this month's block was a bit different for me. I appreciate modern quilt blocks and all but I just wasn't feeling it with the November block. I remedied the situation by making a couple of Yankee Puzzles blocks instead.

 I love how quickly these blocks came together. I can't wait to finish the quilt top with next month's block.

To Vladimir, With Love from D is for Dovey

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.

But I'm guessing anyone coming to a quilt related blog is expecting something quilt related.  So, moving along (sorry Vladimir, congrats, BTW), I came to the decision I was fretting way too much and I just ...

Aurifil BOM and New Quilt Along from Lily Patch Quilts

I've been trying to get caught up on my Aurifil BOM in between other sewing obligations. This is the second block I made for October's block. I reversed the color order from the first one that way when it's time to put all of my blocks together, they would work.

These two blocks are from September's BOM. I had a busy time in September so I couldn't get them done on time. I'm glad they're done though.

On another note, I am joining Jana Machado on a Night Sky Quilt Along using Camille ...

Tossed Salad from D is for Dovey

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.

I made this block this morning.  It's from the ...
