Yes, it seems like summer......

.......with temperatures in the 80's.  It may be one of those years where we bypass Spring.  

I usually write my blog post in the evening.  Last evening I was teaching and decided I was too tired when I returned home.  I was teaching at Quilts Etc. and they are getting ready for their open house for new class sign ups.  I will be on the schedule teaching Flag Day and The Virginia Reel.  Honestly it is a pleasure gathering with all of these lovely ladies who soon become your friends.

This is a beautiful quilt being taught.

I hope you can see from this photo what a clever way this Lemoyne star is put together.  This avoids Y seams, just like the porch quilt I just finished.

I marvel at the brilliant people who devise this ruler with a specific use in mind.

I thought this was fresh great design, called Hugs and Kisses.

Now, isn't he adorable.....especially those eyes!

These hexagons are devised into the strips.  Also clever.

This pieced bear is really clever and cute as well.

I was smitten with this fresh modern quilt.

I hope everyone enjoys a pleasant week end.

  1. It is amazing how smart Deb Tucker must be to think up her very useful rulers. I just love her flying geese ruler. It makes the units in quite a lot of sizes and is very accurate.

    This quilt shop must be a gem. There are so many different classes being offered, including yours!

  2. I haven't made it down to Quilts, Etc. in years! I recall that the first time I went it really overloaded my brain! :)
    Love the LeMoyne Star quilt. One of these days I need to check out that ruler!

  3. My spouse and I stumbled over here different page and thought I should check
    things out. I like what I see so now i'm following you.
    Look forward to finding out about your web page yet again.

  4. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the
