The last month up was Jo who asked us to create starburst blocks using Ashley’s tutorial HERE.  I had a kind of difficult time with these […]

Stars and Stripes

I finished this bee block just in the nick of time…one day before the month was up. Meghan sent us red, white, and blue fabrics and requested a 16.5″ patriotic theme block. Her husband is in the army, so she wants to make a quilt for him that nods to that. Well, there are lots

Making Katie Jump

So,  I’m still on the path to finishing up some of my bee quilts.  I have entirely too many as mentioned before because I was in a ridiculous number of bees the past year.  And to think that I had to leave at least three of them because I was so overwhelmed (don’t worry, I

Agh!  I tried to post at least twice last week and blogger was down every time.  Crazy!  And then I left for the weekend to go on our lovely NOLA modern quilt guild sewing retreat weekend.  And on Thursday and all day today, I was at the sewing machine store renting time on the long

Tiny Strings

April’s Block for do. Good Stitches in my group was a couple of string blocks.  Simple enough…I’ve made a whole string quilt before…this time last year in fact.  It was a gift for my MIL. So I thought that a couple of blocks would be easy peasy.  Hmmm… Well, let’s just say it was a
