Perfect Pairs – Coffee and Donuts & A EQ Lesson Day!!

Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

Coffee and Donuts 3Today is your lucky day… I not only have for you the newest release for Perfect Pairs, but I also am releasing my newest EQ video.

Yes, Sir-ree… (I don’t think that’s how you spell it, but I’m telling Grammarly to leave it be) it’s the 10th of the month and that means it’s EQ Anniversary Lesson day. A once a month event I am participating in with Quiltshop Gal and several other amazing bloggers on the web who on the 10th of each month release a lesson for Electric Quilt.

This is another short one… I know it’s pretty amazing, two months in a row, and short to boot… Who knew I could make some short lessons… Continue reading

Perfect Pairs – Whipped Cream and Pie Released

Whipped Cream and Pie

Whipped Cream and PieWhile I’m not as late as I was with Sunbonnet Sue this week, I’m still not 100% over this back issue. Hopefully, soon, I have way too much sewing to do this month and no time to be down with back problems. I need a younger body. 🙂 Whipped cream and pie are not going to do that for me, but cherry pie is my all time favorite pie. I like other pies, but give me cherry any day of the week and I will most certainly enjoy it.

This pattern is a bit on the tedious side to put together, simply because of all the teardrops in the outside crust of the pie. The pdf explains some ideas on how you can obtain that part of the pattern done in a faster manner.

The free pattern includes only the 9-inch block. The full pattern includes 9×6, 9×9, 12×12 blocks with the machine embroidery designs and the SVG cutting files.

It’s Sunbonnet Sue Antartica and Australia – Released

Antartica and Australia

Antartica and AustraliaI wish to take a moment and send a thank you to all of you who’ve been concerned about me over the last few days. I hurt my back last week, and it’s been and still is quite irritating. My doctor actually gave me some pills to help, but they also make me sleep, so their you go, patterns are late this week because I just couldn’t get to my desktop or sewing machine to do any sewing. At least now I am caught up again..

Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Antartica and Australia are officially released. This is also a voting for next month’s release of Italy or Spain. 🙂

Oops, I overslept, but Perfect Pairs – Peas and Carrots Is Released..

Peas and Carrots

Peas and CarrotsMost kids either dislike peas, or spinach, as a kid myself, I was not fond of peas at all. I can still remember the days where my mom would serve them, and I would stack them in the window sill while everyone else would eat, then later take and put them in the trash. I’m not sure if my family ever caught on to my little shenanigans with the peas, but when I think about it today, I have myself a good little laugh.. If I have peas tho, they need to be fresh.. I always loved spinach.. and carrots.. 🙂

This pattern is extremely easy to put Continue reading

Perfect Pairs – Hamburgers and French Fries

stbs-2016-PP-Ham and FF

I love Hamburgers and French Fries, who doesn’t? The one thing I miss most about living in the USA next to family and friends is not being able to enjoy In-N-Out Burgers and fries, for fast food, nothing compares to them.. Fancy burgers a different story.. but I really miss In-N-Out Burgers. They aren’t a US nationwide chain yet, but they will get their, I’d bet on that.

Their is a bit more to this pattern than last weeks pattern, the french fries are individual shapes to be put together, and that’s because I wanted to keep the original different colors in the french fries to give them that more realistic feel to the pattern.

Today marks the fifth week of Perfect Pairs, and Hamburgers and French Fries is the tenth pattern of 15 to be released in this series.

The free pattern includes only the 9-inch block. The full pattern includes 9×6, 9×9, 12×12 blocks with the machine embroidery designs and the svg cutting files.
