    May 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on May 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItThe obvious flower choice for this month would have been the Rose, but as I was researching other flowers that begin with R, I came across this one.  Most of us probably call it Hibiscus, but it is also known as Rose of Sharon.  Since this is also the name of a popular quilt […]

    April 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on April 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItI had a tough time deciding what I was going to do for Q since there are very few choices.  At first I was thinking of Quercus for oak, but the flower would be very hard to appliqué, yes there are oak flowers; all pollen and not much more.  So, Quince, it is! As I […]

    March 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on March 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItGlad that I got this month’s block done early, almost done with April’s block! On top of the fact that the pansy flower is perfect for the letter “P”, it is perfect for this month, because with Spring here pansies are popping up in gardens everywhere, and now in quilts.  Besides they are happy flowers, […]

    February 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on February 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin It Took this picture a couple of years ago in Barstow CA, which is the inspiration of this month’s flower.  This poisonous, but lovely flowering bush is very common here in Southern California.  As a small child, I remember my mother telling me to not pick the flowers, even though they were pretty because touching […]

    Pin ItWhere has the year gone!  I was talking to a friend about this the other day.  Time does not go any faster, it is just our perception of it.  As usual, Mary H. is keeping up with me.  If you have made only one or a few of the blocks, please send pictures.  We would […]

    December 2016 Block of the Month

    Posted on December 1, 2016 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis has been the week that was!  Our Thanksgiving guests were held captive for two extra days by snow and car problems.  Not a problem, since we spent some extra time loving up our 18-month-old granddaughter!  Although it has been down to the wire to get this post up! I apologize for the tardiness […]

    November 2016 Block of the Month

    Posted on November 1, 2016 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis month’s block was inspired by Tiger Lilies, but since this is the month for “L,” it’s just “lily.”  I should have been a little more observant when I cut the petals, so the front ones were from a much lighter area of the fabric.  I think the left one shows that concept better […]

    Pin ItI have never been involved in an online challenge, although I have taken part in quilt guild challenges.  When Marian of Seams To Be Sew first asked me, this theme popped into my head immediately.  She is working in tandem with Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy. The free download of My Road to Tehachapi, (12″x 40″), is […]
