I am working on a new makeover for my front porch area and I decided that it would be fun to make a Bloom Applique Picture to go with the new furniture and decor! Continue reading
When my husband and I went on our little trip to Las Vegas and Arizona, I found a darling new quilt shop in Vegas! It is called The Christmas Goose.
They were so helpful and kind and they had so many darling quilts, kits, patterns and accessories that I just had to keep looking! But up in one corner of the store, they had the most striking quilt hanging on display, when I asked about it, I found out it was a Block of the Month quilt and they were willing to send it to me every month!!! Count me in! :) Continue reading
I got one more quilt done for our new littlest granddaughter! She was a month early, so I told her mom that I still had a month to get this done!
This was a fun quilt to make. I made one of these quilts a few years ago, but added extra borders to make it a lap quilt. I had so much fun making it that I decided to make another one.
I got this fabric on my own personal quilt shop hop during our trip in Arizona last March!
Here is my new Block of the Month block from the “Sew Classic Sampler”.
It is called a Dresden Plate. I have never made one of these before and thought that they looked really hard, but guess what? It really was not that hard and I had fun learning how to make this block and making it!
I love the applique on this block and I learned how to make “perfect circles” by using a template and then run a gathering stitch around the outside and gathering it around the template. Then iron with a good spray starch that has been brushed around the edges to get that perfect circle! They also taught me how to get my corners matched up and make good points at the tutorial they had at “Just Sew”
