Nice straight forward piecing in this block, but I love the effect. And for those of you who don’t know me I am definitely a candy addict so this block is perfect! Continue reading
Wow! When I look at these all together it reminds me of all the new techniques I have tried and enjoyed. It has been so much fun! Continue reading
Here it is – Applique and Free Motion Machine Embroidery! This one took quite a few hours and quite a few different steps. It was worth it since I like the results. Continue reading
It was difficult to decide how to quilt and embroider this block. I wanted to put the numbers and writing on it without it being backwards on the back. Continue reading

I have decided to participate in the 2016 Finish-A-Long. It certainly can’t hurt to try to get some projects done that I have been wanting to finish.
Project #1 – Building Blocks Sampler Quilt
I’ve been working on this one for a while. Pattern and tutorials are available at Leah Day’s website. Here is my progress so far:
- Building Blocks Sampler
- Building Blocks – Rail Fence
- Rail Fence Quilting
- Cheater Drunkard Path
- Building Blocks – Pinwheels
I really want to get this one done since it will be a gift for someone.
Project #2 – Peg Legs
I actually have the fabric cut for these; I just need to sew them up. Peg Leg pattern is available at Patterns for Pirates. They have tips available on the P4P Blog – it includes information on how to get a promo code for the pattern! These will be for me. Fabric is from Joann’s Red Tag Fabrics.
Project #3 – SOS Knit Pants
This black stretch denim is the fabric I plan on using with the SOS Knit Pants Pattern from Patterns for Pirates. I plan on doing the straight leg option.
Hoping I can all three projects completed in the next three months!
Until Next Time!
