I made it for my first granddaughter 10 years ago!

Youtube channel.
The blocks are small drunkards path blocks
That I made using HOMEMADE templates.

monday making - simple sewing

Sometimes you need to make something EASY!

Some leftover denim in my sewing room
Was staring at me...
And I decided to listen.

The denim became a potholder in NO TIME!!

The Denim would have been a bit boring without this CUTE fabric!

I also added a new block to my little Christmas quilt along.
Video on my channel..  HERE
And pattern on the sidebar.

Monday Making - uneven 9 patch

This week I added my alternate block to my Christmas quilt.
It is a simple uneven 9 patch.
I really like the green plaid from my computer design.
Too bad I don’t have that pretty green plaid in my stash!

I have so much fabric......
It’s tempting to go looking for the fabric in my dreams at the store....
And not use the fabric in my stash!!!

If you’d like to sew along with me..
I will be posting one video each week
And adding a pattern to the sidebar as we go along.
Happy sewing!

This week I added a new block pattern to my
Little Christmas quilt along.
I love red and green together...don't you?

My quilt along is HERE on youtube.

I plan on sharing 8 different quilt blocks for this sampler.
7 sampler blocks and ONE block that alternates with them all.
This is not an exclusively CHRISTMAS quilt....
but red and green seem to fit in to the season.

Monday Making - busy week

It was a FUN and busy week 

First I made a quilt top using some leftovers
From a QUILT GUILD give away.

The 2 stars were in the bag with a bunch of funny looking quilt squares.


I also needed a small little bag for my headphones.
These little zipper pouches using decorator fabric
Make me very happy!
 One for ME...
And TWO to give away!

I also received a magazine featuring two of my quilts!

Very FUN!
