In Print.

The little wall hanging'Springtime in Bird Land' that I made has appeared in print this week in Fabrications Quilting for You magazine. I love having my quilts in magazines, they make them look so lovely. So a little happy dance was called for.

Even my little drawings look good in print.

I did get back to my UFO. It is now sandwiched with wadding/batting and backing, and I have started to hand quilt it.This will be my project to take to the Bee's, as we only hand sew at the Bee.

Favorite block.

Some time ago I started designing a mystery quilt and this is the first block.

Block 1
Backing fabric. Cut 10" x 13" (cut down to 9” x 12” when stitchery and appliqué are finished.)
Stitch panel.
Either use appliqué and stitchery or just stitchery.
Side flat crumb catcher.
Cut strip of fabric 1” x 9”, fold 1” strip in half, along the length right sides out. Press.
Place the open 9” strip on right side of block matching the raw edges.
Stitch along the fold line 1/2” from raw edge.
Fold the fabric over the stitching to show 1/2” border. Press.  Month 1 done......

Feel free to join us in this mystery quilt. I plan to put details up once a month, around about the 12th of the month. Please note in month 1 the appliqué is set to the right hand side of the block, something else will be added to the other side later. 

This is a sneaky look at block 6. It is not all stitchery, some months it will be pieced patchwork.
let me know if you are joining in.

Keep safe and keep stitching....Doti...
