Please tell everyone how great it was!  I know I didn’t want to go home…and that is unusual for me…I will do another post on the sites of OBX!So I’m back…clothes in the wash…mail sorted and bills payed…machine and stitching stuff put back in its spot…grocery shopping done…and just finished with my Jan Patek Blockhead block for tomorrows(Wednesday) post!!!

Summer Mystery Blog Hop!!!

Today is my day to post!!! Yes…I know the day is young…just after 12am…I’m so excited you are visiting to see what my block looks like…Make sure you collect all 13 parts to this Mystery…

Here is my old washtub planted with my favorite all-time  wool flower to stitch…geraniums…and…nothing goes with geraniums like those little American flags…I put one in every potted geranium I have in the summer…

Now we know geraniums come in lots of colors…but really…red is the best!!  I was wondering if I would like the USA on the wash barrel and when I took it off it looked bare…so they stayed on!!!  I love Summer in Wisconsin…nothing like it…I can’t wait to decorate our new yard…but….I am planting all white flowers so my geraniums will have to be white this year, but that flag will still look awesome with white geraniums!!!!   I am looking forward to sharing/posting the flowers this year…but first it will be those tulips I planted last Fall…

Mystery Block Instruction Sheet  for my block…now you will notice my block doesn’t quite fit on the page…but I’m sure you are capable of making the block with a little of the design cut off…The blocks are 10″ and the paper is only 8 1/2″….Trust me you can do it!!!  You can order a KIT here….You can also order the threads for this block there as well…

close-up of flowers and stitching…

Geraniums look good in anything…but…all this needs is an American Flag…don’t you agree.. I’ll be looking for one of these fertilizers this summer!!!

I hope you all enjoy this Block of the Week and have a beautiful quilt finished by Summer for you to enjoy!!!

Liberty Gatherings…Please read if you have this pattern!!!

I am posting this to alert you there have been errors found in our pattern and we think they all have been discovered now- so this is why I am posting now instead of every time one was discovered…I know this is frustrating and we are so beside ourselves with it…See the correction link below…

My friend Val is teaching this at The Christmas Goose in Las Vegas and has helped up with getting everything straight with the pattern…We also thank the other shop owners who are working on this as well for letting us know… Val has made up a cutting chart for the whole quilt that we have also listed on the corrections if you shop owners want to kit it as a whole quilt instead of a BOM…Thanks again Val!  Some of the numbers that were incorrect are fabric numbers which mean a lot to whoever is kitting your kit, but aren’t necessarily needed for making the blocks. Again we sincerely apologize for this…

Please Print this and add it to your pattern    Corrections

This is a fun and beautiful quilt…I hope you enjoy stitching it!!
