September's Block Grandma's Attic BOM from Quilt Doodle Doodles


Happy September everyone! I'm a bit slow to get this posting up since we just got back from a family vacation. It was the last hurrah for this summer. We had beautiful weather and it only rained overnight and was sunny the next day, perfect! I enjoyed playing cards and relaxing while the guys went out fishing. I was amazed how quickly our vacation flew by. It was hard to pack up and come home, we had such a relaxing, fun time with our family. I'm already looking forward to next year!

August's Block Grandma's Attic BOM from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


Happy August! This month's block features flying geese. Flying Geese are one of my favorite quilt blocks to make. You can make your blocks using all the same fabric or you can switch it up and make it scrappy. It's totally up to you! I've named this month's block, Fly Away Home. 

After you download the this month's pattern and cut out all of your block pieces, it's time to start stitching your Fly Away Home blocks.
Draw a diagonal line on the back of B squares.
With right sides together, align 1 B ...

On the Border from Gray Barn Designs

Sandy asked me to give her a hand with the border of her Postage Stamp Quilt.  Of course I jumped at the chance because she did all the hard work and I get to do the easy part!ScrapsFirst things first.  I squared off the quilt because all those postage stamps made this top a little, shall we say, UNEVEN.  Proof of my effort was this lovely pile of tangled redness.  Scraps2 Next, I went on a fabric hunt.  The ladies at the quilt shop suggested adding a thin, white inner border before adding the red outer border.final version I cut the ...

April's Block! Grandma's Attic BOM from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

April's Block
Happy April! It has been a surreal few weeks... I've lost time and feel like I'm in the twilight zone. I can say though, quilting has been keeping me sane. I can actually relax if I'm quilting and listening to an audiobook. I'm sure I'm not alone! Many of us have been busy making facemasks, working on UFO's and actually completing them! I've enjoyed seeing the postings of last year's BOM completed by many quilters over the last couple weeks. It warms my heart to see finished quilts. This ...

March's Block! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

March's Block
Happy March! I apologize for the late posting.... I've been sidetracked with cleaning out a closet. Our oldest son's bedroom (who is all grown up and has a home of his own) had become the overflow closet so we are reclaiming the space for our exercise room....This room is full of my boys' childhood items.... old school work, pictures, games... full of memories. There's also tons of other junk too, Amazon boxes, old clothes etc. Luckily it's my husband that is going thru everything, deciding what goes to goodwill, what is boxed ...

Orange peel blocks from Northern Deb Quilts

The orange peels blocks are coming along. I made a cardboard template, cut a bunch of ovals and started to applique them onto the white background. 
They're really quick blocks. I'll have quite a pile when I get back home. 

Al and I took a ride to Dunedin this afternoon. They have one of my favorite quilt shops there and it's going to be closing. Everything is 40% off. I REALLY don't need much fabric but it's fun to look.
I did buy this cute stripe. It's perfect for binding on a future quilt ...
