Here is this weeks fat quarter. Can you believe I remembered to post it on FRIDAY. LOL. Enjoy and happy commenting.
I also sewed these blocks together. I did most of them yesterday and put them all together today. I made them to use with other fish blocks I have already but didn’t really like them together. It was too busy. So I made a throw out of them. I just love batiks.
Today Josh wanted to take some pictures. So I thought what the heck. Here are a few.
This weeks winner is Melzie from Melzie’s Monologue.
We had 17 comments this week. Great job. I will be posting this weeks fat quarter in a bit. Good luck.
I put this together last night with the left over scraps from the blocks I made yesterday. It didn’t take long to do. I think I might quilt stars in the blue squares. You can’t tell from the picture but the material has stars in it. I was amazed that I actually did something with out a pattern. Go ME!!!
I hope everyone is having a blessed day. Joshua was up in the middle of the night sick. He still isn’t feeling great today. Poor little guy. His sinuses are really bothering him. I think drainage made him sick. He has been a little lazy today. Normally he is just full of energy.
I was able to make 6 blocks while he was watching a movie. The first is the Star BOM for April for 3 Sisters Cyber Quilting. The pattern is Mosaic #4 from Quilter’s cache. I chose to switch the colors in the block. I liked the dark in the middle better.
The other 5 blocks are the Four Patch Chain block, also from Quilter’s Cache. I just loved using the star prints. Very patriotic.
Only 2 days left to leave a comment and enter yourself into the Free Fat Quarter Friday give away. Happy commenting and good Luck.
I guess I wasn’t quite finished sewing today. I got this puppy fabric in the mail the other day and decided to use it in a baby quilt for a friend who lives in Florida. She is due the end of June. I hope she likes it. I have a friend here at church who can embroider names on things. I am going to ask her to embroider his name on it.
I actually was able to sit down at my machine and get some sewing done. I made 10 scrappy blocks for a swap. I also got out the mini bow ties that I have received from swaps and sewed them together. I was able to make 8 more blocks. I think I have 10 already so now I have 18. I still need quite a few more to make a top big enough for my queen sized bed.
I am anxiously waiting for Hancock to call me. Last Tuesday I ordered Quilting Wizard for the computer. It was on sale for $23.99 down from the usual $29.99. I can’t wait to get it and play with it. I have been longing for EQ6 but just can’t bring myself to dish out $150. Does anyone out there use Quilting Wizard? Any advice for me?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had a great weekend. Saturday we took the kids to the park where our church was having a picnic lunch and Easter egg hunt. It was fun. Yesterday Tim’s brother and his family came over. We had a huge supper and afterwards the kids hunted for eggs int he front yard. Some of the eggs had change in them. They had a blast. And of course ate way too much candy. Tyler was up in the middle of the night with an upset stomach. Poor guy. First thing this morning Josh was wanting candy. I made him eat breakfast first, then gave him a sucker. Of course about every 5 minutes he asks for more. Ugh.
Here are a few pictures of the kids
Here is this weeks fat quarter. I thought I would offer a cute novelty this week. It would be great for a kids quilt or I spy quilt. I am using some of this material for the Cat’s Meow swap I am in.
Good luck and keep on commenting.
