More Sew-Alongs


FreeSpirit is doing Christmas in July on their blog. 


This is the first block.                                                       


Pat Sloan designed block 2.


This is block 3.  Three more blocks are out, but I haven’t had time to make them yet.  I didn’t realize how much is going on at different blogs.  No way I can keep up with it all.  But sure is fun trying to do a few of them.


Here is my block 5 of the Beginner”s Quilt-Along at The Learning Center.


Persimmon Quilts Block of the Month 2012-13, block 1.  This actually the center for a larger block, which is the July block.  I’ve started cutting fabric for it and the border blocks.


There is another Christmas quilt along that I was hoping to follow, but I haven’t even had time to look and see if have 5 1/2 yds. fabric needed for the back ground,  If I don’t, no use in even starting it.  It has 12 blocks, three a month, plus lots of house blocks in the borders.  Kind of an ambitious project.  Guess the idea is to have it done in time for this Christmas.

Maybe We Will Get Rain



It is thundering and the wind is blowing, maybe we will get some rain.  The garden sure could use some watering.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed.



Blogger’s Block of the Month


This BOM started last September at the Quilting Gallery.  Each month a differ blogger designed a block.  I just found it about a month ago and then waited until the June block came out to start it.  I’m all caught up now.  I really like these little 8” blocks.
