Ok…so I know some of you are new to this stitch-along sorta thing…but here is the info again…

If you want to sign up for the blog posts- this will be emailed to you…you go to the blog and on the side bar on the right…look for this… img_9933

See where it says…you are following this blog…If I wasn’t it should say…sign up and you would enter your email here…This is on the blog…it is easier to find this on the computer than your phone…

now also some of you are asking about blocks you cannot find…they are also on the blog… run through the posts…

you may need to look through a few posts…where by the way  there is a lot of info…block 11 was posted with the winners for block 10…img_9934

Some of you are asking about starching still…again…it is all in the blog posts…There is also a search button on the side bar too…this will help you find certain things… not all the info is on Facebook…

If you are not sure if you are signed up for the blog…or you have but have not received the emails…I can sign you up…but you still have to accept when it sends you an email back…please send me your email…in the comment section here…


Just to clear up another question…I know Jess just posted about the block heads BOW starting in March 8…moda2017blockheadsthumbThere is no place to sign up it is FREE…except to make sure you are following each of the designer blogs that were listed on the original post…again on my blog…search blockheads and it will show up..  If you want to purchase our fabrics which we most certainly appreciate you can do so at each designers blog as well…hope this helps…

Jess also told be about a heated discussion on one of the FB groups/posts….This kind of behavior will not be tolerated and you will be removed/unfriended if it continues…Quilting is about fun…there is no fun in snide comments.

So back to the fun….I’m still looking forward to seeing your Magic of Christmas blocks!!!img_9939

Look at this beauty!!! I know some of you are not on IG so just wanted to share this quilt with you!!! Can’t wait to see a bunch of quilting in those spaces…make sure you are still posting your blocks/finishing tops/quilts  in FB as well and IG!!!

Have a good day!!! I am picking fabrics for one of my fabric lines…Needle & Thread Gatherings!!! Wish I could show you they are wonderful!!!…LB

All 10 blocks finished up to date….(I know some might have 11..if you made my oops block)

First time posting on Triangle Gatherings FB ( you can do it, I promise it won’t hurt)

so we have three categories to enter….make sure you state which one you are entering just in case I can’t…but it should be pretty obvious…I have 3 great books that my buddy Jennifer Keltner, Chief Creative Officer, or some great title like that, for Martingale Co gave me at retreat and I am going to keep two for myself and give 3 away!!! not too selfish I hope…I’ll throw another small surprise in as well as the book.

I mixed up my rows…so not so bad…but I have to admit…I like the other one too…maybe I just created another block!!!  Sorry, see just shows you we all mix things up a bit….

It was a quilt folding day…

img_9740Amy and I folded lots of antique quilts and a few of my quilts today and lovingly placed them in their new home…I am so pleased with how this all turned out…img_9782img_9780img_9783
