Cutting Kits......

I took a tumble nearly two weeks ago, and unfortunately I have hurt my right shoulder.  The improvement has been slow, and I needed to get kits cut for the Bits and Bobs project for August.  A visiting angel came to my house today and assisted me in making kits, for the Farmer's Market pillow pictured above.  My especially dear friend Diane Ward came knocking at my door at nine A.M. this morning.  We achieved my goal while visiting non stop......and munching on blueberries, it was glorious!

I shared this photo about a week or so ago, it was made by my friend Leslie.  I received requests as to who the designer is.......I now have that information.  The design is by Jan Kingwell, and it is called Steam Punk.  Jan resides in Australia.

These are some fun funky blocks which Barbara Peterson is working on.  We have a little group of women who meet every month and Barbara is part of that group.

This is another interesting quilt which Barbara is working on.

Barbara was the over achiever this time when we met.

Barbara enjoys doing hand piecing, and this is a block which she just completed......and I love it.

It is time for a give away....... who ever would enjoy receiving this bad and the two shirting fat quarters, be the first to contact me @

  1. I would love to win that bag and those fat quarters.

  2. Quilty friends are the best. I just emailed you...Am I first? :0)

  3. Oh Norma! We may have carried this kindred spirit thing too far! Shoulder aches and neck spasms have been with me for the last 2 weeks too! No more tumbles for you!
    I'm really looking forward to that little piggy! My piggy loving daughter loves him. I also have a stash of SteamPunk prints that she and I picked out I may have found the right pattern for them. I'll have to run it up her flagpole!
    Speaking of flagpoles, I love Barbara's Patriotic Quilt and I'm not even going to start gushing over the perfection of that hand pieced block...we'd be here all day! People look at me like I've lost my mind when I tell them if I had more time, I'd hand piece more than doing so much machine piecing...I'm so much more accurate by hand and have to spend much less time with "Jack".
