I mailed four blocks to California the day before yesterday. I’m working on the June block (how did my turn come up so fast?) — need to be sure the directions are intelligible! And I will get to this month’s blocks this...

Seven Blocks for the Drawing

The blocks were fun to make and I had lots of 2-1/2″ squares in my cookie tins. I think this pattern will play well in our guild charity programs. If I didn’t have a graduation quilt demanding my attention, I would have made more. From Elizabeth in Michigan — where spring has finally decided to...

Blocks Off to California

I mailed my blocks today. There were only two, so I wrapped them in plastic wrap and put them in a long envelope. I put postal tape in both directions. The post office, first time ever, said it had to go as a package, and charged me $3.50! I was amazed! I guess I’ll use a brown envelope next time! They better get there for that much....

Another quilt from a 2014 block

  A Snowball’s Chance I didn’t win these blocks. I used a 2014 Block Lotto pattern called Spokes.  I called my blocks snowflakes because I made them from snowflake fabric scraps. I included a big giant snowball too. Machine quilted, hand quilted, tied. Label says: “A Snowball’s Chance Despite the odds I believe some snowballs could survive a trip through hell. I believe in miracles too.” More on today’s blog post at Sane, Crazy, Crumby...

Rail Blocks Made

Here are my 9 Rail Variation blocks for May. These were quick and fun. I even found some blue and green fabric from the seventies that was perfect for a few of the squares . Can you tell which fabric it is? (No, it’s not the carousel horses – that was from the nineties, LOL).  These are all for a chance in the...
