Windmill Quilt Block from Expect Moore

When looking for windmill quilt blocks, most of the blocks I found were more “pinwheel” than windmill. With this month’s theme being “International,” I wanted a windmill quilt block that looked like it could be a “molen” on the “polder.” I had so much fun with this “spin” on the International theme… be sure to […]

Windmill progress from Ravelly1


At the beginning of 2021 my wacky sisters challenged me to get back to sewing, quilting or just get off the old sofa and DO  SOMETHING!!

retreat from Making A Lather

Today is a sleep in your own bed retreat here in town. We have a great place to hold the retreat, and, it will be a fundraiser for student scholarships. We each will have a table and are pitching in a soup for food. I am excited to be going, and will have time with my quilting friends.
My theory is that it is a bonus sewing time and I don't plan to work on anything that I have as part of my goals. So, I have reached deep into the ufo closet to find today's  projects.
The ...
