Wow...last year I quilted 20 quilts...I was a bit burnt out...so I have been spending my time cleaning out my exercise room and made it into a sewing room, painted, put up shelves, decorated it (Love it!), bought a treadle and tore it apart and with a friend of mine cleaned it all up and put it back together...it looks perfect in my new sewing room. I converted my rolltop desk into a stow away for my Accuiquilt dies and my Janome 7700 while its not in use. I went shopping yesterday at a consignment

This week I managed to cut all my pieces for my tulip quilt. I think it will be for me. I love my fabrics, I tried to pick stuff that reminded me of calicos my grandmas would use. Hopefully I make some time to work on it. I also have my pineapples top on the frame, and have one row left to tie. I got a new Quick Quilts in the mail today, looks like a nice night to curl up on the couch and hope my sore throat goes away soon.
NEW TO THIS SITE AFTER LOOKING AT ALL THE GORGEOUS QUILTS I DRAG OUT MY 18YR OLD HAND SAMPLER (12 OF THEM) HAVE A HARD TIME I JUST DON,T KNOW WHAT TO DO BLOCKS ARE STRETCHING?????
I have gotten all of the fabrics at once for this project. I have decided to enlarge this to a king size quilt. Any suggestions to do this ? My lqs has the fabric line in stock now so I need to pick out the rest of my fabric before she sells out. More blocks added or just borders. Thanks

It's really quite a simple block to make, especially after you make the first one. Don't get me wrong though, I said simple, Not "Fast"! LOL I have made about 125 of these blocks so far. It took me all day when I first started. Now it takes me between 3 1/2 and 4 hours to make One. The pattern is made completely out of squares and half squares. If you

once i had the fabrics sorted i started cutting it all out-
