Work in Progress Wednesday

Hi all,

I haven't had much luck posting this week because I couldn't get blogger to upload my photos and what is a post without photos.
I am working on a block of the month for our local quilt guild.  I decided to design a quilt based on quilts from 1812 since it is the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812 and part of it happened right here in my area of Canada.  It is a row quilt and I am making it in shades of blues and greys.
If anyone is interested in following along I will post the pdf of the instructions each month so that you can follow along with us.  Let me know if you would find that interesting??

Thanks for all the comments and the information about the "Rose Star" english paper piecing block.
I was so inspired that I designed my own block  for english paper piecing.  I am calling it "Sunburst" and I will put up a photo as soon as I get it pieced together.

Have a great day everyone!!
yah!!! the photo loaded.

Sunny Tuesday

Hello all,

I joined the hexi linky party  yesterday.  You should go and check it out.  The hexi addicted crowd is getting larger.  I really loved the Rose Star block and would love to know where I can get the pattern.

I am getting into Holiday mode and am getting stockings ready for my etsy shop.  Here is a sneek peek at a couple of crazy quilted stockings that will hopefully be in my shop by the weekend.

For some reason I cannot upload the other stocking picture.  Must be a glitch in the system.

Anyway it looks much the same but more red fabrics.  I must go now and get some work done.
Have a great day!!

Design wall Monday

Hello all,

I have been away from blogging for a while.  August was a very bad month for us.  We lost both of our dogs within 2 weeks and it has been devastating for us.  We loved them dearly and they had a good long life both of them (14 and 16.5 years).  We have lots of photos and good memories.

Now school is back and life seems to be getting back in order I felt it was time to get back to blogging on a regular basis.

My design wall project is an english paper pieced hexagon table topper or part of a quilt, I can't decide.   What do you think??  As you can see the hexagons were made into flowers and then turned into an 8 pointed star.

Hope everyone has a great day!!
