More Susannahs Arrive

More Susannahs Arrive

Recently received blocks from Elizabeth, Peggy, Pat, and Julie. Then, while typing this the mailman brought the blocks from Susan. It is 6pm here! What is up with our mail service? Just a few more blocks to go before I can start so I have been thinking about the edges. Here is my first candidate: This pic looked better on my phone! It is more the color of the little highlighted area on the right and seems to blend nicely with all the different...

Southern Susannahs Slowly Shown

Southern Susannahs Slowly Shown

My four blocks have been made for more than 2 weeks. I really enjoyed making them but posting the photo has been delayed. I have lost my Photoshop due to some Adobe licensing anomaly that hasn’t been resolved. When I paid the big bucks for their programs years ago, the impression was that it was permanently mine. Not so, apparently. Now they want $60 per month in perpetuity. Pah! With that excuse out of the way, here is a terrible picture...

Dress Up Your Baby Orphans

Dress Up Your Baby Orphans

This month we are making a scrap quilt out of all that small leftover stuff. You know, those little extra parts and bits that have accumulated in the orphan drawer, the extra pieces, wrong sized HSTs, and leftover partial blocks.  Pick out some of those little orphans and let’s put them to work. My call for entries looked like this: To qualify, an orphan must be 3’ finished or less. They can be as simple as one leftover HST or as complex...

Bright Spots for a Grey Day

Bright Spots for a Grey Day

Here are my 6 January blocks. Everything is so cold and grey here that even my bright whites look dingy. While trying to perk up the whites, I seem to have neoned the greens. Actually the top one is a softer bluish green and the second one is a bright lime. All are for donation since I am still waiting for my last February win of Dutchman’s Puzzle blocks to return from the long-arm quilter. Though the flimsy was finished early last...
