Quilting Sprinkles and a Nice Win

 I tested the Sprinkles pattern for Sue of Quilt Times and intend to donate the completed quilt to one of the Hands2Help charities. Truthfully, I have not been motivated for the past 2 weeks to do much sewing or quilting.  But, Sprinkles needed to be quilted so I moved my sewing machine onto the dining room table and went to work.  And guess what.  I got back my quilting mojo.  I hope I get this one completed by the weekend and move on to another project.  
If you read my blog you know I do love my Sizzix machine.  I don't have many of the quilting dies, I use the figure dies mostly, but I do watch the youtube videos because making the quilt blocks  looks so neat and accurate.  I entered one of their giveaways and won two dies, 2 FQ's and a very nice book.  This just makes me very happy.

I showed you the postcard I received from my  partner Dawn.  She has finally received the card I sent to her so I can reveal it.
  Did I use a Sizzix die?  Yes.  I had the whole card finished when I realized I hadn't quilted any of it.  See what I mean?  No mojo.
God Bless!

Beautiful Post Card and Blocks of the Month

 I love the post card I received from Dawn (no blog) in the latest post card exchange that Sheila arranged.
 The antennae have little beads.  I didn't know that beads like that would go through the postal service but now I know they will, so I'll have to try them.  Thank you, Dawn.  It is a beautiful post card.
 The March block in the From Head to Foot BOM from Denise of Justquiltin. The first block were the caps.  The socks were much easier and faster to put together. 
The March block for Quilt Doodle Doodles' 2014 BOM.  I'm going to decorate the tree, I just haven't decided what to do yet.  

The crocus we've been waiting to see.  Everyone I talk with is so happy to see their crocus blooming.  It was a tough winter.

God Bless You.

My Sew Kitschey March Block

This is from Quiet Play's Sew Kitschey BOM.
I'm enjoying the paper piecing, and the designs each month are just too cute.  

God Bless.

Caps with Pompoms

 This is the February block of the From Head to Toe BOM designed by Denise Russart of Justquiltin.  I used flannel for the pompoms so that they would show up better.  

Yes, we're still having the kind of weather where you could wear three caps at once to keep warm.  

I also made the fabric postcard for my partner who is in Canada this time, but I can't show it yet.  But it is very spring-like.  

God Bless You.
