    UFO 1-My Tuffet

    Posted on January 15, 2018 by in Blog

    Pin ItHere is my first 2018 UFO Challenge project. In the true sense of the word, it doesn’t really fit the definition of an “unfinished” project.  However, it does involve cleaning out my stash and repurposing stored stuff into a useful item.  Since the main purpose of this challenge is to move stuff from storage to […]

    January 2018 UFOs of the Month

    Posted on January 1, 2018 by in Blog

    Pin ItSeems kind of strange, not designing a new block of the month, but as I explained to you last month, I really need to finish what I have started because I have way too many Un-Finished Objects hanging around.  However, on the first of each month, a revised version of one of my original blocks […]

    December 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on December 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItIt is finished, well not really, now it all has to be put together.  The final block is here, our last Floral Alphabet Block!  When I started two years ago, I was a little nervous, because two years is a long time out, but here we are.  I finally have chosen a quilt-setting, but you […]

    November 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on November 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItOnly two more blocks in our series! I didn’t think I was going to get them all done.  Once again we have an issue with the lack of flowers that begin with “Y” unless you use Yellow as part of the name.  Maybe not a lack, but they need to be something that is […]

    October 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on October 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItWe are coming down to the end of our alphabet flowers and one starting with “X” was needed.  Very few choices available, but I found this one, Xyris.  You may never have heard of it, and neither had I, but here is the definition from the dictionary. I am thinking of it as a […]

    September 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on September 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItMy wild rose. These bloom every spring through the summer and are deer resistant, not like domesticated roses and have been very inspirational.   This quilt was included in my book “A Thread Runs Through it….” published in 1999.  I still have copies available at a special price, if you are interested.  You can see […]

    August 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on August 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis month was an easy pick, I could only “pick” Violet!  The aroma of violets is so lovely I have them growing in an old tin wash tub with Columbine on my upper deck.  If I want flowers around here I have to grow them in pots out of reach of the deer and […]

    Stash Busting Little Girl Dresses

    Posted on July 18, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItJust a quick note to share what I have been doing, besides appliqué.  Our little granddaughter loves dresses.  I have lots of patterns from the 1970s when I made dresses for my daughters, but I was looking for something simple.  I found several sources with free patterns for A-line dresses. I thought I would […]

    July 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on July 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItFinally caught up with myself!  This has been a month of distractions.  As some of you might know but for those who don’t, we took a 10-day hiatus from home and computer.  The train to San Antonio was our mode of transportation.  We went for our oldest grand daughter’s graduation.  We were thrilled to […]

    June 2017 Block of the Month

    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 […]
