Copy of 2014 BUNNY-GO-ROUND VOL 10

      BLOCK #957  /  PAGE 47

       BUNNY-GO-ROUND

        Being a sampler geek, I love looking through stacks of block books, and dissecting the blocks.   I was doing just that when part of a block reached right off the page and this fun ditty is the result.

       I particularly like that bunnies can be made without the use of applique.   (Note:  if block used for baby quilt, please stitch the eyes instead of using buttons)

P- 1 BLOCK

 

    ONE-BLOCK HOORAH

      I heard a quilter say they wanted a wall hanging for t-shirts. And voila’ !   This is a BONUS pattern.  The 12″ finished block is just right for one t-shirt (for your office or a college dorm room) AND for any block from QUILTMAKERS 100 BLOCKS issues! What a party!

2014 MAYFLWER 1 BLOCK

      NEXT EXIT

   QUILTMAKER  / SEPT-OCT 2014   issue

       And once again, I was dissecting a sampler block that I designed, and the corner of the block “reached out”.  After several doodles on the graph paper, this quilt was born.  Promptly went out and bought new fabrics and made a quilt top, photographed it, and submitted to Quiltmaker.

       They accepted the design, sent me lovely new batiks and here’s the prize!    Quiltmaker also teamed up with the  ACCUQUILT die numbers for Accuquilt users.  Fabrics are beautiful batiks Bali Handpaints and Striped Blender both from Hoffman California Fabrics.

     I’m sure you can still run right out and get your very own copy of this issue.

OH YEAH – I REMEMBER HOW FUN & EASY

  OH YEAH!

Today I did a bit of cleaning, baking cookies for our family Thanksgiving, some computer work, the dogs outside for the day before a cold front hits,  and sewing with Freebie the cockatiel.

I’m making a new model of my biggest seller FANCY THAT.   I’d forgotten how fast, fun, and easy this puppy goes together.  It’s still so amazing to me the sales just keep going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny!  Fat Quarter friendly too!

Really enjoying re-visiting this one.   And a day at home with a wine spritzer.  HA!

HAPPY EASTER !!!

24 Apr

 

A week or so ago, I’d planned to get outside on a nice day and pull the weeds in the front flower bed, remulch, and look forward to my summer perennials peeking out.  Surprise!!!   Also “peeking” through the maze of weeds (although lovely purple, weeds none the less) and the oak leaves, and the hyacinth blooms, I find three baby bunnies.   So other chores were found that day to keep me busy!        To all of you be the blessings of the true Easter!
