stbs 2020 Louisiana 600x300 1

stbs 2020 Sam Louisiana bI’ve been saying it for days, but trying to finish last week just took me in so many different directions. I’d planned to release this Saturday night then got sidetracked by a mistake I noticed so needed to fix it today and retest it so I knew it was correct. Thus I had to fix what I’d already written into the pattern.

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2020 and The Funny Things…

2020 QQQ button

2020 QQQ buttonOh yes, I’ve definitely been enjoying the projects I’ve seen so far and at the same time been truly inspired by what’s been shown. I am so happy that my dear friend Joan continued with the tradition of keeping this blog hop going this year and so a HUGE Thank you to Joan at Moose Stash Quilting for a wonderful job in organizing this hop this year. She is also doing a daily mugrug series which you can see on Instagram, and Facebook, as well as her blog, it is fun to see the different “official” days of the year.

When I join a hop I usually have an idea right away about what I want to do, but this one did perplex me a bit and then I got to thinking about all the blog hops I have previously done and there have been many over my last 7 years of blogging. I love them and I love seeing projects my fellow quilters are also doing.

So I thought I’ve done some pretty funny projects over those years, so thought I’d just do a flashback to those early years… It’s kind of like an “all stars” Amazing Race… LOL

So to get started… Continue reading

Quilt Qwazy Queens Hop, 2020, and More…

Worldwide Quiltind Day 2020

Worldwide Quiltind Day 2020

Today is the start of the hop which represents all of us with Worldwide Quilting Day right around the corner this Saturday…

Did you know that March is National Quilting Month?

I did not know this until just a few days ago… I was amazed because I know September is National Sewing Month and I had the impression that quilting was just included in that. So it was a surprise to me to find out this is also National Quilting Month.

Quilt Qwazy Queens is a 5-year-old hop as of this year, that I hosted for the first four years. This year my time was just not going to be Moosestashthere and my dear friend Joan at Moose Stash Quilting offered to host this hop for me. I was honored that she wanted to take the challenge on and if you’ve seen today’s starting blogs you already know what a great job she did of getting bloggers to participate. I can’t wait to see what else is coming from the bloggers over the next 5 days of this hop. My day is Friday so you’ll see my post then for the hop.

If you haven’t seen the schedule yet, I’ve posted it below, be sure to visit everyone, there are some wonderful projects on each of these blogs and all of them will make you laugh. If I laughed and I did… then I know you will too …

I have two new Block Of The Month‘s posted also for you. I also have Sunbonnet Sue news inside this post. …. and more… have a look inside my post to see what’s happening. Continue reading

Twas The Night Blocks 23 and 24 Released… Plus!!!

Twas The Night Full Quilt

Attic Window Filled mediumHow very very exciting to finally be done with this block of the month. It has been fun and great to see the samples that have been made from this series and to see others enjoy making it as much as I have provided it to you. It’s taken far longer than I would have liked to finish this block of the month but I now consider it finished with one tiny exception but that will take place silently.

Twas The Night finishes with 25 blocks instead of 24, I found an additional block that was provided to me when I commissioned this artwork that was to be a finishing block. I commissioned it separately and then went and forgot about it.

The current blocks 23, 24 and 25 do not include the machine embroidery files, but they will be added later this week. I wanted to get these released because I know most of you are not using the cutting files or the machine embroidery files.

The cutting files are in the zip files, when you purchase your blocks you’ll receive an update email when I add the machine embroidery files and you will need to re-download the pdf file to get the worksheets. I expect to have the machine embroidery files done by the end of this week.

WooHoo, WooHoo, WooHoo…. Is It Ok For Me To Be Excited????

Block Of The Month 2020

Block Of The Month 2020Each year with sheer anticipation I look forward to various designers and their block of the months. I just know they have planned something special for us that year. I am always saddened when they decide to take a break or stop for a year or so, but I totally get it also. The sheer amount of work that goes into a block of the month for free or for purchase is unbelievable. You can’t even imagine unless you’ve done one for yourself. At the same time, if you’re creating that quilt I know you look forward to getting it pieced or appliqued to go into your planned project so it has to be a let down when the designer is late, such as my current botms.

Today I was doing my normal trip around the web Continue reading
