Two blocks done from Shop Hop Pattern

These are blocks from the Oklahoma Shop Hop....Uh you know me, I'm not always fond of other people's selection of fabrics, so on Block #2 I chose my own.  Wow, this was a difficult block for me to figure out how to do it. But, I finally did.  thanks

Clover Soft Touch Thread Pick

You may already know about this little thingy.  I just discovered it.  Bought it at a local Quilt Fabric shop, The Cotton Patch,Tulsa, OK.  What a great invention.  It will slip thru cotton fabric and grab those little threads that have been left behind under your quilt top.....Happy Quilting

Pink Rose of Sharon Sampler quilted by hand "Quilt as You Go" Method







getting it together

well, I almost have this quilt finished.  Quilting by the square (I love this method)  I did the squares in 3 panels.  I will machine quilt the dark pink batik with a clear momofilament thread before I sew the sashing on them, joining the quilt.  Then all I lack is the outside border and binding, how cool is that.  This is a great method for people who want to machine quilt their quilt and not have to move all that fabric around.  I will definitely make more using this method. 

I made a "hand quilted" quilt as you go quilt a few years back.  I'll take a picture for my blog.  I loved that too.....
