Happy Blockheads 4 Wednesday, Block #9

Cross My Mind 

by Brigitte of Zen Chic

Besides really liking the block, 

I love the name.

You can go to her blog to 

download the pattern by clicking here.

This is my "Starting the Day

with Appliqué block.  It is Block #6

of this year's Mystery Quilt

Garden Party.  We're still at the beginning

if you want to join in and Tammy can get

you uptown speed easily if you email her

at janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com.

Outside, behind the house,  the tomatoes

are coming along nicely.  Besides the 3

plants we bought I found a small volunteer

the other day when I weeded.  We'll have to wait

until we get fruit to see what kind it is.  I've never

had a volunteer tomato come up before so I'm

somewhat interested in seeing how it does.

I really like the little purple heather plant

I put inside the cream separator planter.  We had

a cow named Suzie for years and always had

lots of milk and cream.  Now we just have the separator

and lots of great memories.

Aunt Odell's poppies.  And besides these

oriental poppies we transplanted from her

house, I have some salmon poppies too.  

They're larger and bloom later so I don't

have a picture of them yet.

And of course Grandma Laird's iris are

showing off.  Audra Laird.  When my mother

built her house Grandma Laird brought some

over to plant by the side of the house.  When we

moved my mother up to Cameron and sold her house, 

we put it in the contract that we could go back in 

August and dig up a few to transplant. 

My sister Nancy has some and I have some 

and they still bloom every year.

Our vintage book this month is

Oceans Aweigh and this is one of

my favorite quilts from the book.

It's a great little quilt to make, fast and easy and pretty.  

I just love whales - - and of course stars

Our club selection that's shipping right now is the Wallhanging Club.

This is Clover Meadow Wallhanging.  For more information 

about the clubs and how they work, you can email Tammy

at janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com.


And last but not least, our sale item today is
the BOM pattern for Audra's Iris Garden for
$30% off.  You can go to our store to get the
Vintage book and the BOM pattern for 
Audra's Iris Garden by clicking here

Now lets go see what the others have done with Brigitte's block.

Happy Blockheads 4 Wednesday - Block #8


Wild Geese
by Kate Spain.
You can go to her blog
to download the pattern
by clicking here


It's been really warm on the farm
and everything is really growing.


I planted some sugar snap peas
in one of last years tomato planters.


They're already up 
We hope they'll vine up and 
around the top.


I had to move the thyme and lavender to
the back deck with the herbs because
it was getting too hot for them on the 
front porch.


The doors to our bedroom from
the front porch


had started a vine growing up from
beneath the porch.  I'll probably have 
to pull the vine later so it doesn't damage 
anything but for now, it's small enough.


I had to fill the barrel in the garden
because Elizabeth and Dobby were 
drinking so much.


Chantilly spends most of her day sleeping
after a good night of hunting.
When I first got her, I bought her a 
pretty bed but she wouldn't sleep in it.
About a week ago when I got my cleaning I 
dropped the bag on the floor by her bed.
She kept sleeping on the bag so I put it in her 
bed.  Now she curls up with the bag in her bed.  I'm pretty 
sure she's safe because she never gets her face
near the bag.


These are the 3 blocks I'm appliquéing 
right now.  The top one is the bottom part of 
Block #5 of Garden Party - this year's Mystery Quilt.
To join us, email Tammy at janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com


These are two of the blocks from "Down on the Farm"
which will be out soon.

                                              It was Pep's birthday yesterday and this is the

card I got him.

He's 4 years younger than me so he needs
to catch up.


And this is one of my favorite quilts 
from this month's vintage book
Ocean's Aweigh.

Now lets go see what the others have done with Kate's block.

Happy Blockheads 4 Wednesday - Block #7

 Gameboard

by Lisa Bongean


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


The crabapple tree out front is 
in it's full glory.  It not only looks
awesome, it smells awesome too.


On the deck the marigolds are starting
to sprout.  I can't wait to see the planter
just filled with marigolds.


And the lilac flowers in my Rooster
planter below will really set the marigolds off.
I love lilac and gold.


Pep's cherry tomatoes will be 
delicious in salads this summer


And he will make good use of the herbs - 
Rosemary in the blue planter to the left,
 parsley, cilantro and oregano.


The baby bok choy is growing well and so
is the lettuce.  We think the seeds we used in
the top row were too old because nothing came
up so I found some little plants on sale to
fill in the space.


Jeff found these mushrooms in the front 
yard this morning and brought them in.


We'll have them tonight with our fresh eggs.


Our vintage book this month is
Oceans Aweigh.  I dedicated this
book to the memory of my late
father -in-law Byron Patek.
He was career Navy.


He was awarded a bronze star for taking his
Yard Mine Sweeper (which was built for sweeping for mines in harbors)
across the ocean and sweeping mines in either the 
South China Sea or the Sea of Japan 
(Pep can't remember which) during a typhoon.
He was an awesome man and we miss him.


Our special for the week is the kit
for Starry, Starry Skies.
You can get the kit or the vintage book
or both by going to the store  
by clicking here

Now lets take a minute and go see what the
others are doing with Lisa's block
