First Sat Block, Check

I finished the February alternate block.  I did substitute the dark fabric but it was because I did like the one included.  It was okay close up but when I saw the picture of the block on the website, the fabric looked muddied or something. 

At least I got this one together with all the colors in the right locations 😉

My Two Worlds

I have pretty eclectic tastes in most things, music genres, foods, books and, of course, fabric.  Right now I don’t have a leader/ender project prepped and I can’t not sew for free 😉 so I’ve been making crumb blocks.  Thing is I see my fabrics in two worlds….olde world (civil war, primitive, reproductions) and new world (brights, novelty, trendy, modern) and they just won’t go into the same blocks.  Guess these are destined for two different quilts……


Happy Monday

It’s a good day, no snow, no sleet, no ice, no rain 🙂  I’ve not gotten much done this week but one of the things, quilting on Sophie is wonderful.  Wonderful because she is quilting so nicely now that she’s had an in home visit from the repair guy 🙂  I can quilt more than a minute without the thread breaking. I’m quilting my guild’s QOV quilt and it’s going so smoothly 🙂

I have a couple of new blocks on the design wall.

Block #24 – True Blue from the Grandmother’s Choice BOTW.

And the main block from February for the First Saturday group.

I had an oops when cutting the fabrics and had to replace the purple dot fabric.  And another oops when sewing the block together.  The jury is out on whether I will fix it.  Maybe I’ll just make a whole other block and use this on on the back….or not 😉


No change to the Stash Report even though our guild had a fabric exchange night, I managed not to bring home more than I took 🙂

Happy Quilting, Cherie



I have more cheddar and green blocks on the design wall for DWM.  I finished three more of the Grandmother’s Choice BOTW blocks, plus an oops block 😉

The new blocks are #22, Jack’s Delight….

# 23, Girl’s Joy…..

#25 The Carrie Nation Quilt….

Not too happy with this one… contrast between the dark large and dark small squares, so I might remake it.

Talk about an ugly oops block, check this one out!!  There are just so many mistakes in this one, lol…..this should keep me humble all year!


No change to the Stash Report 🙂 🙁 

Happy Quilting, Cherie
