February Block For Lynette

Lynette selected "A Mother's Dream" for her February block choice. I love the back-story of this block: a mother's dream = to have each of her children gathered around the table. So cool! Think of it: all the kids gathered around the table. No technology blaring or buzzing. The quilt frame suspended from the ceiling in the sitting room. I think I may have been born one century too late.  :)

Hi Everyone. Happy New Year.

December was crazy month followed by an even crazier January. I received 3 blocks in the last few weeks From Teresa, Janet and Susan. What great Wonky blocks. My little town is coming together very nicely.

My first block in the group is going to Cathy in Australia

Today I spent 1 hour looking through my purple fabric trying to figure out which ones to use. It happens to be my favorite color and I wanted it to be extra special. Cathy asked for the 9 patch done with 5" squares. I hope she likes the block. :-)

Saying Hello

Hello everyone.
I am excited to be a part of the group and look forward to getting to know each of you.
I want to say a special Thank You to Melissa for helping me get started with this group.

A local quilt shop asked me if I would take some of their material that had come in with a flaw and do something with it. I graciously said YES. So as I get a partner I will be sending a fat quarter along with my finished block. I am hoping that this will be a blessing to all and the material will be used.  It is 100% cotton.  I had originally thought I had 100 yards but after reviewing the total it is more along the lines of 300+ yards. It will take me some time to get it all distributed.

May each of you have a wonderful and blessed week.

House Blocks from Laurrie Jan 2013

Heres my cute cute cute house blocks from Laurrie...she did a great job, they are so perfect!  Thanks Laurrie!

Sneak Peak for Aileen

Aileen asked for a wonky house block.  I've never made anything deliberately wonky before so I hope this fits the bill.  It was actually sent out several days ago so should be arriving at its new home any day now.

This is the block I received from Aileen, isn't it lovely.  All the triangles are made from strips and the applique  flowers with button centres are delightful.  Thank you very much for this block Aileen.

I hope you enjoy it when it (finally) arrives!

January blocks!

How are your January blocks coming?!

Do you have a teaser picture that you could share? 

Make sure that you are communicating with your partner, I have heard from a few people who haven't heard back from their partners!

If you would when you post your block, or a teaser picture would you "label" it January 2013

thanks :) Melissa

This little block is so cute and I hope she will give it a good home. So our little kitten will be on route shortly Melissa. Your feline family is growing... Best, Debra

Block from Ida to Kathy

Thanks to my January Block Swap Adventure, Ida from El Paso, Texas, I received another churn dash block as requested. I love the purple paired with the small print background Ida selected.
