    Posted on June 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis month we have two blocks to get in thirteen for the year and not lap over into January.  One is a familiar flower and the other is not, but it starts with S.  I just loved the simplistic look of it.  I decided to use blue, rather than lavender for my flowers.  It […]

    May 2017 Block of the Month

    Pin ItWaggly Tail is a fun popular pattern that I designed a number of years ago to counter my Nine Lives pattern.  A few days ago, I received an email from Barb W. asking if the block could be enlarged, since she wanted to include it in a quilt she is making.  I gave her a […]

    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 […]
