My second eclipse

My second eclipse

I saw this fabric and decided that I had to make another block this month. The bright purple was just too pretty. My sewing machine broke (why do I have such bad luck) so this is it until it gets repaired. Hoping I can participate in February! Helen W Nashville,...

Catching Up … and the February Sneak Peek email

If you have made and posted Eclipse blocks, you should have a (late) sneak peek email message from me about February’s block.  Your name and blocks should also appear in one of the lists in the left side bar, either blocks entered for the drawing or blocks “donated” to the pot. I’m sorry for being an absent blog mom for the past week or so.  I would appreciate if everyone who has made blocks would check to see...

One for January!

I made two but one is wonky so I’m submitting just this one.  I liked the Blue paisley and had to use it.  I’m so glad to be back sewing it has been a long Month.  For those who don’t read my BLOG regularly– I had my Tonsil’s out in December.

Are you ready for a (little) Challenge

Are you ready for a (little) Challenge

This is a slightly modified version of a block I found on the funquilts.com site, called Eclipse which will be our January 2012 lotto block. We’re changing the directions to make a smaller block (9 1/2 inches, to finish in the quilt at 9 inches). The two challenges you may find in this block are working with templates and sewing curves. You can download the directions for the Eclipse quilt from the free patterns at the bottom of this...
