I am happy to announce a new Christmas mystery quilt along! There will be 12 blocks by 11 designers released every other Tuesday starting August 1 to December 5. Guess what, I am one of the designers and the best part, it’s free!
There will be 11 hosts meaning you will get to see 11 different versions of each block on the day it is released. The hosts will be available to cheer you on, share tips on making each block and to answer your questions if you get stuck. Amazing right?
With the blocks being released every other week, you will be able to set an easy pace . However, we do have a couple of weeks when we will release two blocks at the same time, but at least one block in each of those weeks is pretty quick. The benefit of doubling up on those two weeks is that the final block is released on December 5. This gives you nearly 3 whole weeks to complete your top before Christmas.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comment on the blog hop post! Unfortunately my blog had a mind of its own and I was unable to get notifications by email. I believe I replied everyone one way or the other and if I didn’t, I apologize.
Where were we?…Yes, I was telling you about my crazy experiment with trying to up size Jen’s wonderful pattern because making the small one just wasn’t enough! I decided to multiply all the given dimensions…I mean if you want to double numbers you multiply by 2 isn’t it? Turns out it isn’t as simple as that with quilting maths.

Happy New month friends, it’s already a week gone in the new month and I haven’t been here but I promise I have so many exciting things to share with you I don’t even know where to start. Let’s get right to it shall we?
Remember the color theory experiment I did on that baby quilt first mentioned here? I said it’s one of those love it or hate it color combinations and I kept second guessing myself all the while I was working on this project. Guess what, it is now a completed project and I absolutely love it, so much I can easily say it’s one of my favorite finishes. This was such an enlightening project in so many ways, I learnt to stop second guessing myself and just take a chance. It was also interesting to see the transformation that took place as I quilted this. Continue reading “F is for Finished…Friday Finished Quilt Reveal.”
As always after a brief break, it seems I haven’t been here forever! What have you been up to?
2 more sleeps till the month of February 2017 is gone forever but I don’t mind, I am actually excited. Why? well when I wake up after the 2nd sleep I’ll be a year older! 1st of March is my birthday and I am happily looking forward to it. It isn’t like I have any plans besides anticipating another year of my life that is. I had planned to have a giveaway but I haven’t gotten round to making any of the things. However, I’ll probably just keep it open for the entire month and that should give me plenty of time to make some things.
My sewing table didn’t make it home this past weekend after all but I did manage to get some sewing done with my stop gap setup. Anyway, remember my challenge for now is to quilt my stash of strip scraps and I have been doing just that with my experiments so far. This weekend I decided to take it a step further, probably because I was inspired by the idea of improv piecing from Carole’s Book. What better way to get rid of some of my scraps than a fun log cabin block piece. To make it even more fun I figured wonky log cabin quilt was just the thing! I did say I particularly liked the color palette of my EPP project from Work in Progress Wednesday and could likely make a quilt in that palette.
It has been a while friends – Life happened as usual!
The Quilting Process series has fallen way into the background for a long time so before we continue, let me catch you up on what we’ve covered so far. If you are just joining, the series is all about the major processes involved in making a Quilt from start to finish.
My machine works now yippee! Remember that work training I mentioned in my previous post? Well it required me travelling back to my former city, I called up my regular service guy and he was happy to look at my machine if I was willing to travel down with it. Duh…of course I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity even if it meant travelling heavier than I should. Long story short my machine is up and my table should be coming in this weekend hopefully…happy days. Continue reading “Quick Catch up “
