Forty more blocks to go for the 

100 Days 100 Blocks 2021 ~Event Info Here

@ GnomeAngel

I am really enjoying playing with these fabrics again. It is a lot of fussy cutting.

Sometimes I can find what I need in my scraps.

Last night I had to turn off my computer and sewing machine for a line of strong thunderstorms. Before I did I had decided to take a break from the fussy cutting and I packed them away for another day and pulled out a different project box. I made ...

Wednesday WIP: Sampler Spree Quilt-Along from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Have you joined the Sampler Spree Quilt-Along? It is sponsored by Moda and is based on Susan Ache’s book, Sampler Spree. Each week a specific color is announced along with 10-12 blocks to piece using that color. It was so helpful to have my scraps sorted by color. I can just pull out the appropriate bin and start cutting!

I am having so much fun making these little six-inch blocks. The quilt-along started in June but it is not too late to join in. Check out Moda’s blog post here for more information. Week one’s color ...

The Fabulousness That Is February: One (or More) Monthly Goals from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Hello, my lovelies!  Happy Thursday, and happy FEBRUARY!  Now that I have replenished my supply of Kona Solid in Ocean, I came close to finishing two more sampler blocks for my Retro '80s Building Blocks quilt last night.  The 10" block below wasn't quite done yet when I took this photo:

Progress on Another 10 Inch Sampler Block

All of my block sections had been foundation paper pieced and trimmed, but they still needed to be pieced together and, in order to nest the seams the way I wanted them for crisp, perfectly matched seam intersections, I designed my ...

January OMG, Smashed to Smithereens from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Well, folks, my January OMG (One Monthly Goal) was to make four more sampler blocks for my Retro Building Blocks quilt.  I made six!

Four Retro Building Blocks Added to the Design Wall...

Plus This One...

...And Also This One

I know that making six blocks in a whole month might seem like a pretty weak goal, but I also completed a vintage quilt repair for a client, quilted several charity tops for our guild's outreach to local pediatric hospitals, and I just finished quilting a huge, gorgeous Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt for a client that I am DYING ...

Two More Retro Sampler Blocks Completed, and Fabric Crises Averted from Cheeky Cognoscenti

 Hello and happy Tuesday!  This post needs to be a "quickie" because I have a dentist appointment to get ready for.  I like making these Tuesday To-Do lists, even if I don't always cross everything off before the next Tuesday rolls around.

Last week, I managed to eke out two more 5" sampler blocks for my '80s Retro Building Blocks sampler quilt:

5 Inch Puss In the Corner Block

Neither of these blocks is in the original Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt, by the way.  I always try to mention that in case anyone out there is working on ...

Just ONE Monthly Goal for January: Complete Four More Blocks for My Retro Building Blocks Sampler Quilt from Cheeky Cognoscenti

 Y'all, I am hangin my head in shame over this one.  Here I am, gleefully ordering fabric for my son Anders' high school graduation quilt, when all the while the quilt that I started for him back when he was in MIDDLE SCHOOL is still languishing on my design wall.  Where did the last 5 years go?!

13 Blocks Completed, but 35 Remain

I told you about my plan for his high school graduation quilt in yesterday's post, and yes, that will need to be a priority in 2021.  Hopefully, Anders will get to participate in the quilt ...
