It’s a busy day here in the Pena household… I’ve been planning to release Sue/Sam in New Jersey for several days, but so many things kept getting in my way. Then today, I was writing an email to someone when I had to give her my blog address and I realized today is my 7th year blog anniversary. I’ve owned this domain for 18 years, but as I’ve noted before in various posts that the first 11 years of this domain were related to being a web developer. The last 7 now as a blog.
Its been a really great experience being a blogger, I can still remember the day where I thought blogging was silly back when I was developing websites for others, but I saw how much fun my customers were having and when I decided to get back into quilting it was an easy choice to open a blog and see where it went. I never thought I’d enjoy the experience as much as I have, nor that I’d make such wonderful friends along the way. I know this blog is the reason I’ve made such wonderful friends.
Today I have for you a new Quilt Along and I promise you this isn’t an event you will want to miss, I also have for you, Sue and Sam In New Jersey being released… Sue is the free block in this set for New Jersey.

Next… A Wonderful Quilt Along is about to start on Facebook and Youtube.
Helen Godden is a quilt designer who mixes paints with applique and Free Motion Quilting and comes up with the most stunning projects and quilts. Each year, for instance, she has an event on her FaceBook page at Christmas that allows the ability for us to create a wonderful project. This year just back from Canada she has created a new Quilt Along that will run during April on the even days of the month. You’ll want to check her Facebook page each day, the patterns will be available via the Photos section of her page and also on the front page with her posts, and the videos will be on her Youtube Channel to view.
The Flower Power QAL starts Easter Day, April 12, 2020
This is more info about her Quilt AlongAs someone who has taken two of Helen’s block of the month, I have great admiration for her and truly love the talent that she is. This year I am doing her Midnight Magic botm and two years ago I did her Quirky Collections botm. I’m hoping to do Curiouser and Curiouser down the road. I’ve also done several of the other free projects she’s offered through the years. I hope I’ll see you on her page next week following along… I’ll definitely be there.
I have added Helen’s Flower Power QAL on my page for all botms also, Helen does tend to leave her free projects up for you to enjoy later and while I don’t know is she will do the same this time I will leave it there just the same until I know for sure.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more news, Cya Friday
