Good Morning! I finally started the 2015 Block of the Month for P3Designs. I finished the first two months, blocks 1-10 and am working on 11-25 over the next few weeks. The blocks are very small and easy so they go together pretty quickly. The catch is that you make one block with the basket and a second flower for each block to be used later.

Good Morning! I had a very productive weekend. I made myself a very quiltey garment bag complete with inside pocket!! It turned out very nice and I just love it. I made one for my daughter for her birthday also!
I also worked on my Linen Lady project and am binding the unfinished edge of my cut work lace. I quilted the back ground fabric and once I finish the binding for the inside I will bind the outside!
I also worked on my embroidery for my applique project! Just a few more blocks and I get to sew them all together. Remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls.

Good Morning! I am working on settings for my applique quilt. I finally finished the last two blocks in this pattern. There are 16 blocks but I did each twice but shrunk them by 50% so the are smaller. So now I need a setting that uses 32 blocks. A work in progress! Any suggestions are welcome.

Good Morning! I have been on a Paper Piecing binge lately and after finishing my 120 Wild and Goosey blocks I started a few 3.5 inch pineapple blocks. Just for fun! They took the entire weekend to make the first 14 but they were fun. I am thinking about making a few more. Please remember to check on Judy's wall to see the rest of the design walls!

Good Morning! I have had a blast all weekend making my Wild and Goosey Blocks from Bonnie Hunter. I love using up my scraps and they have turned out so well. I am not normally a paper piecing person but this was the perfect week/weekend and I finished my first 100. I might make 40 more but I think that will be enough!!

Good Morning!! Spent the weekend adding my detail to a block of Forever Blooming. I love the french knots!! Hoping to get to the rest of the blocks done while I work on preparing the border applique pieces. I also had time to get to a few Wild and Goosey blocks, from the Quiltmaker magazine, April 2013 I think. These are 3.5 inch paper paper pieced blocks. Trying to get through my scrap basket!!

Good Morning!! Finally, finally, finally, I have prepped Block 8 of P3Design 2014 BOM, Forever Blooming! YES!! I only have to sew it down and now I can start the border! I still have to go back and do all the embroidery on each block but that is I labor of love so I am looking forward to it! Love how all my blocks turned out and so looking forward to trying out different colors for my border applique. I also finished the top of Grand Illusion Mystery by Bonnie Hunter! I will be getting it ready to quilt today so I am very excited! Happy Monday all, remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls.
