Block 2 or Can’t Make Just One!
For me blogging, sewing and friends have gone hand in hand. I started blogging about 2 years ago now and love it. It’s not about the number of visitors or the number of comments (although comments are always fun to read) it’s more of being part of a community, keeping connected and sharing that part of myself with family and friends.
While I’ve made a lot of original quilts, I haven’t published many patterns. With the encouragement of friends, I’m throwing my hat in the ring. My first pattern for a quilted version of a Quiet Book is now available for purchase at woodchesters.etsy.com.
Besides my love of quilts, my other passion in sewing is my cloth mama pads. While my initial reaction to cloth pads was – Yuck! – something about them kept tugging at me. I finally made up a few, fell in love with them and wanted to share them with the world 🙂 Besides selling them at my etsy shop aprilmdesigns.etsy.com, I also want to help make people aware of the health benefits associated with them. You can find all of that info at my website http://www.clothmamapads.com/. I’m saving my scraps to make a cloth mama pad quilt one day. The best of both worlds!

My apologies for these blocks. They have not received their final pressing yet. I know I shouldn’t let them be seen this way. Sorry. Are the quilt police going to call me in for questioning?
Okay, so a couple other items of business. I type these up Saturday night so they will post before I can get to the computer Monday morning. The link will be on the main page shortly.
Second, the drawing. Yeah!!!! Here’s the deal:
Sew, sew, sew, you have today to finish block 1!
Late tonight (Mountain Daylight Savings Time — I do not like daylight savings time by the way — too much information — oops!) I will post my two new blocks on Flickr. When these two blocks are posted, every block before my blocks are entered into the random drawing for two fabulous prizes that will be announced tomorrow.

Question: What about the speed demons who finish Block 2 before I get my Block 2 posted?
Answer: Speed Demons, you have a choice to make. If you post your block, you will have two chances in tomorrows drawing because you will have two blocks posted. Or you can wait until after I post mine to be entered into the next drawing. I will leave the decision to each of you.
