I just realized it’s been almost 5 years we’ve been quilting and shopping together. Neat, huh? This year I’m thankful for my quilting and sewing community, friends, family, Comet, color, fabric, and pies. Those are in the oven right now. Happy Thanksgiving dear friends.

Here’s a peek at my process with Block 2. I’m really happy with how it’s coming together. I like to stack the fabrics so I can cut at least 4 at once. It pays to slow down a bit though, because any cutting errors will be in multiplied by four.
The finished blocks for month 2.

Finally have some pictures to post of my Park Bench Block of the Month. The pattern from Jaybird Quilts/Julie Herman is so nice. Love love love the full color diagrams. You can even see where to put the clipped corners of the triangles. The fabric is all from Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander. We have the pattern, fabric and rulers in stock.
I got to use my new rulers, Sidekick and Hex N More which were actually fun to use.
And the results were pretty cool…
Jean Creates is showing the love for Botanics by building up her stash of neutral backgrounds. Can’t wait to see what she makes! Read her blog entry here. Personally my favorite piece in the collection is the Metallic Charcoal.
For the perpetually undecided like me (fabric hoarder), a jelly roll or a fat quarter tower will be better.
