A Tisket A Tasket

Bunny Hill Designs has the most adorable BOM going on now. I need another project like I need a hole in the head but here I am anyhow.

I just started it last week so I had three blocks to do. The pattern is for a wallhanging but I'm going to do an individual monthly banner sort of thing. I don't have them completely done but I did take pictures of them laying on the background fabric I will use.

Here's January:


and March:

The basket on the March block is kind of light and it's a shame because the fabric I used is so pretty.

The patterns are all free and the new ones are posted around the fifth of each month. And there's a pattern for applique and a pattern for redwork.

I can't wait to see what April's block will look like. The link to the website is in the sidebar on the right.

And here's Thunder's good bye picture. It's obvious this is the window he always looks out of and the one we tap on to say hi to him. lol.

Until next time, hugs and stitches, Jody

National Quilt Day

was Saturday March 21st. Since I was scheduled to work on the 21st I decided to start on Friday the 20th and I pretty much didn't stop until Sunday the 22nd.

I started with four blocks towards one of those great projects that I can't show you because it's for a gift.

Then I finished up the Easter top I started last week. It's cutting it a bit close to have it done before Easter but that's why I made a very simple charm quilt. Now if I can just get it quilted in the next few weeks.

And then I did the final couple of blocks for my Autumn Sampler and added the sashing.

I need to do another border on this one. It covers the top of the bed pretty well but I need something to hang over the sides. I'm planning to do a really busy border using the fabrics I used in the blocks.

Well I'm off to get busy on something. Oh here's a quick good-bye from Thunder and one of his best friends.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
