stbs-2018-My Hero

I finally managed to finish these patterns today. They were drawn and ready last week to a degree, but writing the pattern proved a bit more work than I’d anticipated last week along with the few obligations I had in real life to deal with. We all know how that goes.

I’ll be working on the other bear next, but in the meantime thought I’d go ahead and get these released since winners would probably like to have their patterns. The winner’s list is also showing here on the rafflecopter window also, but the following people also won this pattern.

The winners for this pattern are:  Ronelle, Nancy D, Tea, Susan E., and Karen T.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern and be sure to send me photos when you create it, I’d love to see your version of the pattern.

When You Wish Upon A Star, You May Get A Hero…

Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop

Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop

Today I am participating in the Wish Upon A Star blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt.

Her fun idea says our project needs to include a star somewhere in the project.

With this hop, I thought about what I could do carefully, and when you see it, hopefully, you’ll agree, it’d be great for Memorial Day, Father’s Day or even the 4th of July…

I’ll be releasing the pattern tomorrow morning along with another cute little pattern I’ve done for the 4th of July. In the meantime, enjoy my project for today.

30 Days Blog Hop From Creatin' In The Sticks

30 Days Blog Hop From Creatin' In The Sticks

Oh Boy, I have been waiting and waiting for this day to arrive on this really fun blog hop that Carla at Creatin In the Sticks has offered up for you in April 2018. It is a huge task to coordinate an event on the web and this one is no different. We were each given a choice of the block we wanted to do, and I chose block 20. I thought, this is so simple, I can whip this out in no time at all… and… to some degree I did… but let me tell you all about it.

First, I had to come up with something I like, now I didn’t care for the butting up of the same block over and over again with this block, it’s just not in me to want to see the same block over and over with what I’m going to say no real design to it. It’s just a bunch of squares if you want me to be honest… Don’t get me wrong, I love doing easy quilts, squares are as easy as it gets when you want to make a quilt. I decided right off the bat I was going to find another block to go with it to get more of a design. I played with several…

This is block 20…

Quilt Qwazy Queens Final Day 05 …

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

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…

Quilt Qwazy Queens – My Day On The Hop…

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018I’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

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…

Quilt Qwazy Queens Day 02 …

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

Wasn’t yesterday fun!! I know I enjoyed visiting the blogs and seeing what the other bloggers are up to and even seeing how many UFOs they have is fun. While I know I have a few, I am definitely behind the mark in having a lot of them. Since I use to sell a lot of my finished stuff or gave it to charities and even to friends and family I use to finish many of the projects I had. Most of my UFOs are from swaps I’ve done on the internet in the late 90s. Even the UFO for my featured day comes from one of those swaps.

Today’s schedule is as follows:
