Well, I finally got these patterns done and uploaded. I apologize to those of you who got to see the preview last night on Facebook. I got the free patterns done and went to start on this post… Frank called me downstairs to do something and when I came back up, I totally forgot about writing the post and instead just went to bed. So here I am first thing this morning… writing the post 🙂
Let’s just get to the nitty and the gritty of it, the free patterns for this Sue and Sam release are, Sue In Texas, Sam In Rhode Island, and Sue In Nunavut. The cupcake of the month release for April is also in this post.
Let’s go get those free patterns
Heya Everyone, I mentioned last week that this week was my blog’s birthday… She was five years old this past Monday. I’ve been very busy trying to get Sue/Sam ready for release and really didn’t want to post until it was, but I’m realizing that I’m letting time slip by as I try to finish those patterns up. So I am writing today to offer a little free pattern I created for celebrating 5 years of being a blogger.
With another 5 years, I should be able to make it to 1000 posts…
I apologize for not posting the winners and such before now, I’ve been trying to finish up the Easter Choo Choo full pattern so I could announce those winners also.
All winners have now been announced for Quilt Qwazy Queens and notified.
The following are the winners: Continue reading
Today is the final day of Quilt Qwazy Queens and other than announcing todays The Fat Quarter Shop and Quilters Dream winner which will be tomorrow, I must say it has been a lot of fun to see everyone’s projects, read about there UFOs, and just a joy to see some of them get done. This was our 3rd year doing this same blog hop, its name does not change each year, last year I started adding the year onto the name as I think it’s cool to do this one every year.
I will be featuring my UFO today in a separate post, it will be located directly on the link of this post with the schedule, so it will take you to my post.
I’d like to just take a moment and thank you for visiting, for your comments, letting me know how much you’ve enjoyed this blog hop. I wish to thank the sponsors for there generosity in offering giveaways for each day of this hop, and to the bloggers who wrote a post about there UFOs, whether finished or unfinished and even for the tips on what you can do with those unfinished projects.
So, lets get to the schedule…
I’ve talked about this project for weeks now… and while it’s not quite finished or as finished as I’d like, I have enough done that you can at least see it and see the layout and such.
This project stems from my time on Genie Online Services back in the 1990s. This quilt has traveled with us from Virginia where my time on Genie was, to Arkansas, Texas, California, Germany, Italy and now resides in Colorado with us. I attempted to start putting this together while we were in Germany, but I quickly realized that while I had good intentions I didn’t have all the necessary supplies I needed to finish this quilt… Mainly rulers.
This quilt was created in all by 25 people on Genie, Continue reading
Well I am a bit late posting today, my apologies for that. I didn’t get the Aurifil drawing done, but it is posted below with the Studio 180 winner.
I had a very busy day yesterday, I’ve been working on a fun project for a blog hop next month with a pattern I design specifically for it, I wanted to get a jump start on it today as I have quite a few blog hops coming up in the next few months and I want to have everything caught up.
So, let’s get to the schedule for today…

Studio 180 Winner
We are into day 03 with just two more days to go of Quilt Qwazy Queens. If your going to comment today, tell me what you did for Worldwide Quilting Day? Did you visit your local quilt shop? Make something special? Start a new project? me? I sewed all day taking a few breaks for email and checking Facebook and then back to my machine I went… With this in mind, we’ve seen lots of great projects so far, even some of those wonderful UFOs that baffles every quilter, even if your a quilter who finishes everything, you might still save scraps, or small test blocks, all of of which can be used to start new projects that may end up in the UFO bin.
I have enjoyed seeing how you store some of your UFOs, as well as reading the ideas of what you can do with them as you finish them. I liked the idea of finishing the tops to have them ready to be quilted for those last minute gifts we all run into at times. I need to get on top of that. 🙂
I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store today from our bloggers… Here’s the schedule…
