Blockheads 3, Block 54

Windmills by 
Janet Clare


You can go to her blog
to download the pattern
by clicking here.

Our vintage book this month is
Garden Spirit and in it is the pattern
for one of my favorite all time
quilts - Winter Spirit.
I do get tired of winter but I 
never get tired of this quilt.


My friend Cherie Ralston introduced
me to machine appliqué with Winter Spirit
and she did the top center block.  It
is truly amazing work.  Thanks again Cherie.

After looking closely at her block, 
lets go see what the others 
have done with Janet Clare's block.
Oh and if you want to make this beautiful
quilt, you can buy the book for 1/2 price
this month by clicking here.

Now off to see what the others have 
done with Janet's  block.

Bear Cubs Round

This is Block #43

Roses by Jan Patek :)


I posted this just before I went 
into the hospital for the surgery 
on my brain.

I had hydrocephalus or "water on the brain".
It's really not water but my body was producing
way too much spinal fluid that surrounds the
brain and spine and that fluid was causing
pressure on my brain.  My primary care 
physician diagnosed it because my "gait" was 
off when I walked.  Quite often it is caused
by a stroke but I hadn't had a stroke so
we're not sure what caused it.

Anyway, by the time I did this block I could
still needleturn the large flower, stems and 
larger leaves but the small leaves and the
buds just were't possible.  So........
deadlines being what they are, I cut the buds 
and small leaves to size and fastened them
to the block with a dot of glue.  I was pretty sure 
some of you would notice the raw edges but
you can only do what you can do.

Today I thought I would show you how the
block turned out after my brain and fingers 
were communicating again.  I got some embroidery
floss and did a buttonhole stitch around the
raw edges and I really like the added texture.

So now lets go see what the others have done 
with Robin's block.

Cardinals, bluejays, juncos, woodpeckers and
many many more.

into a quilt

Night & Day

by

Laurie Simpson 



You can go to her blog
to download the
pattern by clicking 

here

Our vintage book this month is


Parts 1 and 2.

and one of my favorite quilts in the books is


Zoie's Christmas Kitties

I have a new kitty
Her name is Chantilly
and she's a sweetheart.
She loves to take naps on my bed.



And this is Midnight

Nancy's cat.  And he really is Nancy's cat.

He follows her everywhere. 



The only one I couldn't take a 

picture of is Dueces -Pep's tuxedo cat.

I think he's up in the barn taking care of mice.

He and our 6 ft black snake take great care of the

mice.  I really prefer Dueces but I've never been afraid 

of snakes - non poisonous ones, of course.

But  lets see what the 

others have done with Laurie's block.
