winners for Moda Block Heads II post…

Hello…I’m Back…from Rome…

I stayed home from Paducah b/c I had way to much stuff to do…and now it’s time to get some normal in my life…but first I promised a give-away…and look what it is….If you read my last post…way on the bottom was this little giveaway…

I have picked two winners …from the MBH2 post about finishing the MBH2 quilt….here they are….If this is you…please contact me and I will send you an OLFA 40th Anniversary Rotary Cutter!!!  email Amy at: to claim your rotary cutter

  1. I have only 19 blocks done so far but have started working on them once again. I am doing it in scrappy yellow, gray and black, not sure how the appliqué will look may have to add orange. Thank you for doing this I have thoroughly enjoyed following along with everyone and seeing what is going on in the quilting world.

  2. I have only one block left to complete. I have started sewing the blocks together but I love the thought of separating the blocks with sashing to show the blocks off. When with a basic red, cream and blue color palette, the layout is very busy. I have taken the suggestion from Jo Morton of clipping the seams to be able to stagger the seams when setting the blocks together. I had a great time with this project. I watched BH1 from a distance but decided to get into BH2 and had so much fun. Thanks so much to the designers for their creativity

    be back soon with some fun stuff!!!

Here is the question for this week:  January 17 –  When you stitch – hand or machine – do you listen to anything?  Music, podcasts, audiobooks, television or Netflix?  I am a Netflix/Amazon junkie…so If I am stitching I am watching the latest series…I am currently watching POLDARK on Amazon…I just love it!!!

I still can’t believe we are almost done!!!   I am in California for the famous Road To California Quilt Show…we will be setting the booth up today….here are some pics from yesterday’s work in progress….If you are in CA…If you’re coming to the show…stop in and visit!!!

This week’s question – Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? Yes…lots of them…

A word for the year?      POSITIVE

Keep your thoughts positive,

because your thought become your words.

Keep your words positive,

because your words become your behavior.

Keep your behavior positive,

because your behavior become your habits.

Keep your habits positive,

because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive,

because your values become your destiny.

-Mahatma Gandhi

I actually want two things: a way to travel to every quilt /fabric store in the world (a magic carpet would do), and the money to buy all the fabric my little heart desires. And believe me it can desire a lot! Since that’s probably a no-go, I will settle for having my whole family together! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
