Lots of Sewing

The past two days have been full of sewing and preparing for future sewing.
Yesterday at Pam's was the monthly Block Buster class. It's a free class where we make a block using one of Deb Tucker's tools. This month it was the V Block..

You see the deal is that the class is free and the block we make is donated to Quilts of Honor.. I think so far we have donated enough for 4 quilts.  The class has becomed so popular that Pam added 3 more class times and they have already filled. 
To see some of the past blocks on their facebook page

Here are some of the blocks we made yesterday.

Last night I finished appliqueing this block....

Now I'll go on the the friendship blocks I shown the other day.

Today I cut out more Retro Air-Ship Propeller blocks, enough for 16 blocks.

Seeing how I'm doing 2 colorways I did the pink and turquoise 1930's. Next will be the other colorway.

Now for the most exciting part is that Esther over at Esther's Blog has launched her new free BOM, Diamond Hill.
I love her designs and I had started her Love Entwined and will finish it someday but there is so much to that I had felt overwhelmed. 

But I can see myself doing this one and not feel so overwhelmed. It started the 15th and for the next 7 months on the 15th she will have the pattern available, just go to her blog for all the details and colorways.

I have the pattern ready and now its deciding on fabric.

Linking up to WOW


  1. you have been very productive !! I love Esther's new quilt as well. it is just gorgeous and seems like I might be able to do it. Take care from Iowa

  2. You never cease to amaze me you certainly work quickly.

  3. The class made some beautiful blocks didn't they! What a great way to get blocks together for the quilts too.

  4. You did get a lot done. Those QOV blocks are fun. The new pattern is gorgeous. It almost makes me want to learn applique. But maybe not. I'll just enjoy watching your version develop.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
