Off the Brick Path Blocks

For this month's Bee Blocks, Bonnie asked us to make some of these adorable Off the Brick Patch blocks.   And like most of my bee block, I now want to make an entire quilt of these!!!  You all know, I love some tiny patchwork, and these strips finish at 1" x 2" and how cute is that!!!   And I love the low volume goodness of it all.  


There are two block layouts, so that you can then sew them all together in a wonderful patchwork chain!!   Love it!!!   Bonnie shared a tutorial on her blog, just in case like me, you want to make your own quilt of these awesome blocks ;) 


Always loving adding to the "someday list of quilt to make".  How about you???  Do you have an ever growing list of someday quilts to make???  Which one do you want to tackle this year???

Threadology QAL - Nine Patch Blocks

It's February 15th and that means it is the second block release of the Threadology Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop!!!!  And today's blocks are Nine Patch blocks, and honestly, it doesn't get more fun than some awesome basic patchwork!!!!  I mean, you just have to love a nine patch, right ;)


Just like the first set of blocks, I am making 3 of the larger 12" blocks and 6 of the smaller  6" blocks for my alternate layout.  And ya know, when it comes to a basic nine patch, it is super fun and super easy to make in any size.  


So are you joining in the Threadology fun???  If so, you can download the block pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)  This is Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL that is raising funds for an amazing organization. They have already raised over $10,000 and are on the way to the $20,000 that Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will match.  So let's help them reach that goal ;)  



And while making your blocks . . .  like always, Fat Quarter Shop has made an awesome  You Tube video tutorial that walk you through making this month's blocks.  I know a Nine Patch is pretty basic, but Kimberly always shares some helpful hints :)






Be sure to share all of your Threadology progress on social media with #threadologyquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Block 2 for lots more Nine Patch Inspiration!!!


And that's it for the first block in the Threadology Quilt Along!!!!   I will be back on the first of March with the next block.  So fun!!!  So what do you say, wan't to come Threadology Quilting Along??  You are going to have so much fun!!!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

It's a day filled with Lots of Love!!!  And that reminded me of my Lots of Love Mini I made for Barbara in conjunction with the first Splendid Sampler.    So fun!!!  I just loved making this project for Barbara, and representing all of the Love that we share in our family.


And while I was sharing all about my block, I made a little tutorial on putting them together, and a table that shares the fabric needed for hearts in all sizes from 2" to 10".  So if you find yourself wanting to make some special heart pieced projects today, be sure and pop on over here for all the hearts in all the sizes ;)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Valentines Day, and maybe even squeeze some Happy Quilting as well!!!

Catching Up and a Valentines Throw Back

Thank you for all of the wonderful warm wishes on my Retreat I posted about last week. I had a great time and I can't wait to post more about it!!!    But in the spirit of keeping it real . . . life happened and I got sick at the retreat.  I was able to power through my last class, and then came home a night early to rest and recover.   But as things go, I came home to a sick child as well.   Which means, I still haven't unpacked and I need to clean house so . . . the quilt retreat post will just have to wait until I get things a little caught up around here ;)   Luckily, I am feeling better today, so hopefully I can get all caught up, and ready for tomorrow!!! 

So in the mean time, I thought it would be run to bring back some of these Valentines Projects that I and and bunch of my quilty friends made back in 2012!!!   I hosted a little Simply Charmed event, where I asked each of my friends to make a Valentines project using a Charm Pack.   And look at how great these are!!!  And since they just use a Charm Pack, you can still whip them up in time for Thursday ;)


Here's my project . .  the Knotty Little Apron Tutorial

Everything but the Kitchen Sink

I am off to go teach in beautiful Bryce Canyon at the Quilty Friends Retreat!!!   I am so excited ;)   And what with teaching last week at the Cedar Quilt Retreat, and getting ready for this retreat, and getting a last minute secret sewing project in the mail . . .  I didn't have time to do a few scheduled posts.   So it's going to be a little quiet around here for the next few days.  But no worries, I will have lots of fun to stuff to share when I get back.  And I will try to remember to posts pictures at the Retreat on Facebook and Instagram, but I admit, I am not great at remembering that, so no promises ;)


And please tell me that when you go to a retreat, you feel like you are packing Everything but the Kitchen Sink.     I am not the only one that has endless amounts of bags and carrying totes right ;)

Threadology QAL - Ohio Star Blocks

It's February 1st and that means it is the start of the Threadology Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop!!!!  Today I am so excited to share the first set of  blocks!!!  These first set of blocks are Ohio Star blocks and they are just so much fun to piece!!!!  Look at all of those fun points and I just love making classic quilt blocks ;)


So on the 1st and the 15th of of each month for the next 4 months, there will be a new Threadology Block released.  And was you can see, the blocks are in two sizes.   A larger 12" block that is great to piece and goes together in a snap.  And the second is a super cute 6" block that is wonderful for building technique of piecing with smaller sizes :)   They are both just so fun to make!!! 


So are you joining in the Threadology fun???  If so, you can download the block pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)  This is Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL that is raising funds for an amazing organization.  What a wonderful way for us all to make a difference !!   And Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will match up to $20,000 of the donations raised.  So let's help them reach that goal ;)  


This year it is all about Fat Quarters for this Quilt Along and after some playing around in my stash, I decided to use a collection of Bonnie and Camille fabrics that I have stashed for a while now.  And the Original quilt kits are all sold out, but of course, you can use any fabrics.   If you haven't gotten them yet, you can find the Fabric Requirements here ;) 


And as soon as you go to start making your blocks, you will see that I am changing things up a bit. If you remember from this post  I am planning to donate this quilt to the Festival of Trees so I wanted to do a more universal layout ;)   I am super excited to see all this patchwork goodness come together!!!


And speaking of making your blocks . . .  like always, Fat Quarter Shop has made awesome  You Tube video tutorials that walk you through making each month's blocks.  There are some great helpful hints and you can see it put together step by step!!!
