Hello, and Happy Tuesday friends! I am so excited to tell you I actually have a quilt finish this week!

I wasn't sure whether I liked this one or not by the time I was done with it. After looking at it for… Continue reading Completed Blocks

You know what I mean, right? "It's-ah timmmmmmme-ah to get-ah workin'-ah on-ah our-ah… Continue reading Skill Buildin’ and Vintage Quilt Revival’n
Last year I participated in the 2013 Sugar Block Club by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock. I enjoyed it so much that I signed up to sew along with her again for the 2014 Sugar Block Club! On the first day of each month Amy sends a new pattern and a yummy recipe. This… Continue reading Sugar Block Club 2014
Last year I participated in the Skill Builder BOM by Alyssa Lichner of Pile O' Fabric. I learned so much, and had so much fun creating the quilt last year, that when I discovered Alyssa was doing another Skill Builder BOM for 2014 I signed up right away! Alyssa is a great teacher, and started… Continue reading Skillbuilder BOM 2014
