  • Farewell to Spring!

    Since we had so much rain and snow, our wildflowers have been spectacular and summer has started a little later than usual.  These flowers are actually called Farewell to Spring since they are one of the last flowers blooming here in our mountains.  The hills look as if they were stained with purple paint.

    This was taken along the road to our house. 


    Karie made this quilt for a friend who raises Labradors for Canine for Companions.  She almost tripled the number of puppies in the pattern.  She included a close up of the quilting, puppy paws!  So cute!  Thank you, Karie, for sharing! If you are interested in the pattern, just click on the picture to take you to Payhip.


    Betsy has shared two more beautiful blocks with us. 


    Trying to clean out my studio, just to bring some order to it, and I came across a little booklet on Sewfasst® Tips for Quiltmaking that I passed out in my classes back in the day when I was traveling to teach and lecture on quilting.  It has all kinds of tips and tricks that I use when making my quilts.  Since I still have it on my computer as a PDF, I thought I would share it with you, too.  Just click on the linked title above.  It should automatically print in landscape mode, but if not, chose landscape mode, then fold the pages in half for a booklet.


    The pattern for my nursery rhyme block is finished, but it may need some tweaking once I actually make it.  Just waiting for the Northcott fabrics to arrive before I make it for the Once Upon a Story Row Along hosted by Seams To Be Sew.   Here are the ones I have made for the past Row-Alongs if you are new to my blog.  If you are interested, the patterns are available at Payhip, just click on the picture.
