Fir Tree blocks


Moving right along, these Fir Tree blocks for the November 2019 #inspiringstitches #sewhometown #bom were so much fun to make and way easier than the Tulip blocks. I was a tad disappointed in the trunks, but I'm not redoing them.
May your bobbins always be full,

Tulip Blocks


These are the 5 Tulip Blocks for the November 2018 Inspiring Stitches, Heartland Heritage quilt. 

When I worked for a custom picture framer, we would add an extra charge for any customer who we deemed a Pain In the Ass or a PIA charge.  If these blocks were a customer, they would definitely be paying more than the nice quilt blocks!

But, they are done!  Now on to the 2019 November blocks.

Giving Love Qujilt Top


My quilt guild, the Temecula Vally Modern Quilt Guild, makes quilts to give to Thomas House.  We're a small guild and we manage to give 12 quilts a year to them.  This quilt top was made from donated Block of the Months.  The blocks are 12.5" and the HSTs are the same size; those are the larges HSTs I've ever made!  I'll turn this quilt top into the Charity Quilt Vice President at our next meeting, then someone will quilt it and someone will bind it, maybe me!

I came up with the quilt design, if you want to make your own, the tutorial is here.
May your bobbins always be full,
