What Did I Do Over 3 Days?

Hello Everyone,

On Friday, I took the train into NYC to see my friend Victoria of Bumble Beans and spent the weekend.  You probably know that if you read my post on Sunday.  But as soon as I got there I asked Victoria if I could make one of her Triangles Galore blocks to add to her growing collection.


We had fun picking the fabrics for the block and this is what I created!  


Here it is playing nicely with the other blocks that she made.  Victoria has a tutorial for this block if you would like to give it a try.  While there we also worked together to turn it into a Paper Pieced block.  She now has a PDF available for a free download if you would like to Paper Piece this block.

Just click here for the tutorial and the download.


Also, while there I made my Cherrywood challenge block for the NYC Metro Mod guild meeting.  I chose this palette and am happy with how it played with the other blocks that were made!  Looks a bit like and Easter egg.

Thanks, Victoria for a great weekend!

But before I left, I made this block for our Two's Company Bee.   



This block is for Mary and it was so much fun to make!  I really love to paper piece... but I think many of you know that already!  Mary it is on it's way to you!

Also, I have another GIVEAWAY going on,  yes that is right!  If you would like to enter this fat quarter giveaway, just click here for the details.

And remember ALL week long the Batiks in my shop are marked down to $8.25 per yard!  Just click here to check them out!


Until Next Time...

Love those Triangles Galore blocks. I admit I do not like to paper piece but it give such precision to certain blocks. Cherry Wood always makes me want to pet it.
