Too late?

Too late?

Finally got time to make a couple of noon and night blocks, but I see that May is already posted.  Will donate these two to the pot if it’s not too late. ...

They’re all here at last

They’re all here at last

The last of my orphan blocks arrived yesterday from Karen N in South Africa. What a tale they could tell of their travels!  Anyway, they are all gathered on my design wall, getting acquainted.  Not sure what the final quilt will be, I am thinking some sashing would make them stand out better, but for now my wall is a happy place in my sewing room.  Thanks,...

More orphans arrived

Three lovely blocks from Margaret in Australia were waiting in my mailbox yesterday.  Just waiting for Karen’s blocks to make it from South Africa to complete the “family”. I can’t believe that it’s April already and I never got any blocks done last month.  Have to get my act together – this month’s block is great. ...

More orphans arrived

Orphan blocks arrived in the last week or so from Linnea, Robin, Susan, Pat K, and Carol.  Pat K, I am especially in love with one of yours, as the little kitty in the center looks just like Needles, my craft room cat.  Of course I’m shouldn’t play favorites, right? Just two more to go, both from overseas.  Thanks, everyone, for the beautiful blocks. ...

Spent the afternoon digging through my orphan blocks and sewing them into scrap blocks.  It has been a long time since I dug through them – found lots of treasures I’d forgotten about, although most too big for this project.  Here are 4 from me for the drawing, if they pass the test....

good to be back

good to be back

I was so excited last month when I happened to check the site and saw that you all are talking again.  I have missed Block Lotto.  Here are my 3 blocks to add to the pot. Sophie, so glad to see you, and a big Thank You to all of you who have stepped up to help.  Not sure how I can contribute right now, other than adding blocks to the draw.  Certainly my computer connection makes it doubtful that I could lead a month, but if there is some small...

Block mailed

My Easter Cactus block is in the mail to Marianne.  Congratulations to the winners.   I think I’ll sit out this month’s block – I struggled through the spokes block last time we made...

One Cactus (maybe)

One Cactus (maybe)

Well, Sophie did say “your choice of fabric”, and when I dug through my scrap bin I couldn’t resist trying this print for the pot.  Yes, those are Easter eggs.  Most of the blocks posted are more or less solids, though, so I am not sure if this one is too wild to work with them.  Let me know if it’s outside the guidelines. ...

Broken dishes on their way

I put my 4 broken dishes blocks in the mail to Barb today.  Still a little sad, I really liked those blocks.  My design wall looks lonely – have to try some catus blocks to fill the void.  Congrats, Barb,...
