I am feeling so blessed today to be teaching/staying in such a wonderful location with 50 wonderful ladies! This house is amazing, something one only sees on TV…the views are nothing short of breathtaking…the weather..well not so great…but we are happy to be hear inside, stitching and having fun!!! Our sewing room has views from 3 sides..
We have two special guests with us here…sweet Karen who is in a wheelchair with her dog Red…I love having a dog here!!! Makes it much like home…
So…if you feeling left out… I’m going to quick send you a block…Click here to print block-22
Have a great day…All…LB
I’m home from TX…my luggage/trunk show did not make it…until a couple hours later…crisis avoided…thank heavens!!!! A suit case full of your quilts and wool projects is something no one wants to lose…I had a tight connection in Dallas…where I switched airlines companies…so that’s where I think the luggage missed the plane…
So now I’m packing for NC…Amy and I leave tomorrow…I am so excited!!! Its going to be lots of fun and I can’t wait to spend a whole week living with 50 quilters!!! …I don’t think we will be able to fit one more thing in my truck as we are driving and trying to take lots of goodies for the ladies to buy…their 4 kits for the classes…door prizes and our personal sewing…so I hope it all goes well so maybe we can do it on an annual basis and may a couple a year…but the first one is always the scariest…
How about we give you another block!!! I have to finish my block 3 of blockheads(due next Wednesday)and my Summer Mystery Quilt day is March 24…so you know what that means….got to get that finished too!!! Keep posting all those blocks are awesome!!!

I had to laugh after reading some of your comments on the blog about the snow storm you are hoping to get so you can stay home and stitch!!!
I am supposed to be in Midland TX by now…my morning flight was cancellede due to snow in Chicago… the only thing out of here is at 6:30 to Chicago-to Houston-at Midnight…then a 7 am flight to Midland where I will land just about the time our workshop is supposed to start…
I also want to point out I am not complaining as this is the first time this has happened to me in all my years traveling/teaching….so if all things go as planned…I will find a comfy spot in the Houston airport for the night…I think by the time I land..get a hotel…in a couple of hours I’d have to get up and figure out how to get to the airport again…so our workshop will start a little later than originally planned. and then a Trunk show/Lecture after. I’m sure everything will be just fine…
So as long as I have lots of airport time… I thought we release another block…and…
I have 20 1-day tickets to the Chicago International Quilt Show…If you want one please Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org… first 20 get them…Please add your Name and Address so we can send them out to you…and please only take one if you know you will use it!!!
Enjoy Block 20!

I hope you all are doing well this morning…I had a busy week..how about you? So to celebrate the weekend I thought I would post two blocks and catch up to my agenda…Did I mention I LOVE seeing your blocks on Facebook!!…I am still trying to find a prize for reaching over 1000 members…hopefully we won’t have 2000 by the time that happens…I hope you are sharing your blocks with your quilting buddies and telling them how much fun it is to do these simple blocks…I know some of us are doing way more than one a week…but that’s our own fault!!!

Click here to print block-19 I don’t know why but I really like this block…
Yesterday was “little man” day again…he was so happy and fun all day long…So we had to make “Yummies”…and again he was my helper…
Thanks for putting up with me sharing my “little man”…for a reward I’m sharing the recipe with you…This recipe is from Rose Ann Cook from Quilters Emporium in Texas…She made these for one of my workshops and they were awesome!!! Oatmeal-Walnut-Chocolate Cookies
All for now…How many of you are doing the MODA Blockhead blocks??? We are all crazy quilters!!! Stitch away!!! Who will post the first ones finished?
It’s week no. 1!!! Today Lynne from Kansas Trouble Quilts has posted her Whirligig block!!! You need to go there for the pattern…I have taken fabrics from all of us and mixed them up…making blocks scrappy!!! I love using everyone fabrics!!! We don’t get to do this very often…so it’s exciting!!! I am using Aurifil 2370 to piece these blocks together….Make sure you starch your fabrics before cutting as these are 6″ blocks!! They will come out much better if this is done…
Then I am making another set of blocks from my newest fabric line…Liberty Gatherings…I can’t wait till my week to show you how I am going to set my blocks…so look for that…My first block is block 5…If you want to make a beautiful patriotic version you can purchase fabric like the block shown….you can buy a LAYERCAKE if you want to make the just the blocks…but if you want more fabric for setting them…buy a FQ TOWER...and again I will show you on Block 5 how I’m going to set them…I used Auriful 2310 to stitch with the Liberty Gatherings fabrics…
