Bitty Block Swap

It seems like FOREVER since I hopped in on a bitty block swap. This round was a steam punk theme so I couldn’t resist.

Here’s my version of a steam punk hummingbird. All his components are pieces from my various high school mechanical drawing homework. LOL. What a weird flash back going through that stack of papers.

Bright Little Pincushions

It’s been a while since I’ve made pincushions. Here are a couple of bright little stars that I created this weekend. Hubby says it looks like too much work for something you’re just going to stick pins in. Hah! He just doesn’t get it sometimes. LOL.

Have a fun day!

Snow Mystery Quilt Along – Month #1

Welcome to month #1 of the Snow Mystery Quilt Along!

Are you ready to celebrate that wonderful white stuff, snow?

This month’s row is, of course, S-N-O-W. But first, we will start by cutting our border and binding strips. These will be labeled and set aside for later.

  • Month one instructions will be a free PDF download in my Craftsy shop until October 1st.
  • You will need an active Craftsy account and a PDF reader like the free Adobe Reader.
  • Missed rows will be available for purchase when the new row is posted.
  • There will be a Linky party on October 1st to show off our finished rows.

finished size 51” x 66”
Quilt contains paper piecing and fusible appliqué blocks.

Here are the fabrics I’m going to use. I’m repeating the border as Blue #2 because I didn’t find anything I really liked better.

All my border strips and row #1 pieces are cut and ready to go.

Who’s in?
