So excited! from Simple Bird Applique

So excited to announce my quilt, To Everything There Is A Season, has won the Award of Excellence in Applique at Quilt Canada 2017!  This quilt is superbly machine quilted by Rose Bell of Fancy Feathers.

It was a thrill just to have my quilt juried in, but to win an award is definitely the icing on the cake.  For those that have asked, the complete pattern for this quilt will be available on the website mid-July.  We are fine-tuning a few of the blocks, so sit tight!

Meanwhile, I am busy getting my borders ready for the current BOM ...

Let's finish the Dresden Blocks from Quilt Doodle Doodles

This month's designs are the last of the Dresden plates. So when you have time, if you haven't done so already, it's time to sew your Dresden plates onto your background 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" squares. You should have a total of twelve Dresden plates done so far for the quilt. Appliqueing the centers goes fairly quickly once you have everything pinned, so plan an afternoon or two for sewing this section of the quilt. I have been using plastic scrapbooking bins to store my blocks, it's just the right size. They are ...

Opps! from Jan's Quilts


I'm going to be out of town half of June, so I decided to get a jump-start on the Block of the Month for the Temecula Valley MQG Charity BOM.  I followed the tutorial and ended up with 8.5-inch blocks.  Our Charity blocks are supposed to be 12.5-inches.  Dang!  The first photo shows the difference in the sizes.

I've been making 4 blocks each month, two are donated to the Charity BOM and two stay at Casa Prytz, for a future quilt.  So, now I have four 8.5-inch blocks to use in a future project ...

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.

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 ...
