Longmeadow Block 2

  Hi everyone, Block 2 is up and ready to download. I learned the meaning of despair last week when I grabbed a permanent marker instead of my Frixion pen to draw placement lines on the background.  It all worked out in the end, fortunately, but the frustrated groan brought my husband to me from…

Been Busy with Longmeadow – the new BOM

I’ve been having a ball these last few days planning out the new BOM which is tentatively titled “Longmeadow” which will debut maybe in November, maybe in January.  It’s a bright and lovely, very happy quilt and it’s been a joy to design!  I thought I’d post color swatches of those used in the quilt…

Lancaster Co., Block 2

  Lancaster Co. block 2 is up and ready for download. We have been enjoying getting to know our new granddaughter, Kimmi.  She is a doll! Absolutely perfect, and with four baby-hungry Aunts to attend to her, she is loved a ton.  We just can’t get enough of her.  Unfortunately, we just found out that she…

Well, we’ve made it to the end.  Sycamore Rose – Block 16 is ready to download.  I will post the finishing direction in the next couple of days.  Electric Quilt and I are disagreeing over how much fabric is actually needed to finish the quilt….
