Saturday Sampler Fail

These are the blocks for March for the Getting to Know Hue Saturday Sampler. They always look better on the design wall, but I am not totally thrilled with them. Look at how the edges of the blocks turned out: However, that’s not what makes this a Saturday Sampler fail. What does that is the …

Recent Progress

With so many Twilters at QuiltCon last weekend, Nonnie of Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams instigated a #NoQC sew-in. I was excited to take part. Of course, I also watched all the Twilters Facebook posts, tweets and Instagram posts. I would have loved to be there, if only to meet so many Twilters in real life. Although …

#PDSI Saturday Results

For those of you who don’t know, #PDSI stands for Presidents’ Day Sew-In. We Twilters use any excuse for a sew-in. So I took full advantage of the time/excuse yesterday. First, I had to do some cutting so that all my pieces for Charlotte’s Surrounded by Scraps Mystery were ready to use. Most of the …
