Two Tip Tuesday

A change in my block….

I decided to change up my tree in my “Won’t You Be…” Block Stock block.  It is below.

"Won't You Be..." D.W.

I like my new tree.  I hope you do too!  I believe there is a tip there…

#1- if something just isn’t working for you, change it up!

Order on my website or make a purchase from me at a show and you will receive the free pattern.



I spent Saturday at a charity workshop for one of the guilds I belong to.  It was a good day sewing with quilting friends!  We made hearts, baby dolls and lap quilts.  This is the lap quilt I finished.   Someone else made the top, I quilted it and did a back to front binding.









The dolls are given to local hospitals for kids having procedures done.  It is a buddy for the child and the doctors/surgeons use the doll to show what will be done during their surgery.  The dolls are even dressed in a “Johnny”.  The photo below are bags of dolls on their way to meet their friends!

One quilting friend, was working on blocks and organizing for putting her blocks together.  I snapped a photo…

She overlapped the blocks in their rows to make it easier to see the order.  (Tip #2)  And she slid a small cutting mat under them to transfer them next to her machine.  (Tip #3)  They are in line and ready to sew!  Thanks Jane for letting me snap a photo of your beautiful work!


in quilting,
