The Cutest Block of the Month that I’m Not Doing

My friend April of April Mae Designs who has made a block or two for my quilt alongs is doing a block of the month that just started.  Here’s the link to the instructions: http://april-makingendsmeet.blogspot.com/2011/12/free-bom-quilt-along-for-2012.html I love how April adds little touches of embroidery to give her blocks personality.  But it is that embroidery that…

Twelve Days of Christmas Quilt

The day after Christmas, the Temecula Quilt Co started a twelve days of Christmas quilt.  One block a day for 12 days — 3 1/2″ blocks because that’s their favorite size block. Here’s the link to the last post.  It goes backwards from there. It started out so easy.  Block 1 was a 3 1/2″…

Toddler Sweater Dress Experiment

A month or so ago a couple things I had been wanting to do collided, and my almost 4 year old ended up with a super comfy sweater dress that she loves! I have been looking for a sweater dress for her and her younger sister for a while.  The problem was that they didn’t…

I had a difficult time getting something for my sister-in-law for Christmas this year.  It wasn’t so much coming up with an idea.  I had quite a few ideas.  It was just figuring out which one I thought would be the most fun that I wanted to make. My first idea was a couple fun…
