2013 Designer Mystery

Block Ten - "New Bloom"
Designed by Anne Sutton
for the 2013 Designer Mystery

I really like this block.  As with all the Designer blocks, the directions were terrific.  The only thing I didn't like was taking it apart to turn the block around........MY BAD!

Elly's under my desk sitting on my speaker....:)...keeping all the bad guys away.

Rescue Me and a Giveaway

Rescue Me!

Post about your rescue kitty and enter the giveaway.  Click on the Rescue Me link above and go to Lily Pad Quilting to enter the giveaway.

My sweet rescue kitty is Elly.

This was Elly's Mug shot on the Shelter page.  Who could resist that sweet face.
They said that Elly was so timid that she needed to live in a home without children and other pets.
That was us!

I must admit she is NOT timid anymore.  When the grand dog Lucky comes to visit, Elly gives her a really bad time.  Lucky just finally gives up and goes to sit in her cage.

She looked much smaller in person.  Look at that tiny cat.  She was already two.  She had been spade and something went wrong so the shelter had her in a foster home.

She has filled out a little and seems a lot longer than she was....giggle.

So cold.

I taught her everything she knows about sewing.

She's my shadow and really hogs the bed. 

Gypsy Wife

Pershing is the main March block for the Gypsy Wife QAL.
I still need to do the filler blocks for this month.

I paper pieced this block.  When I have lots of triangles, my blocks get a little wonky.


Come check out the links below and see what everyone else is doing.

Quilter's Choice QAL

Block 1 - Sister's Choice

I'm using "Awesome" by Sandy Gervais.  I've had this fabric for quite awhile.  Switching from some of my newer fabrics to this one, I noticed a difference.  Awesome is a much tighter weave.  I like that much better.

Little Bunny Quilts
This QAL just started.  No, I wasn't going to participate....GRIN.....until today.  I'm weak!!
