Keys to Contentment

This project was an embroidery BOM offered last year by Val Laird.  I haven't found that it's still available, but Val has offered a free BOM for 2016.  You will find it here at
http://val-laird.blogspot.com/p/free-patterns.html.

Okay, so I finally decided to put this piece together.  I chose a setting and made a bundle of 2 inch finished pinwheels for sashing.  I am happy with this finish.  It will spend some time hanging over the mantle.  It finishes about 36 inches square.




I'm linking up with Connie at Freemotion By The River  and  Quilt Story.  Visit these blogs to see what other creative quilters are sharing today.

RSC16 Scrapbusters - In the Pink

July's color is pink.  I did manage to get all the working parts done for the 5 RSC projects I have going on.  I sure hope somebody will want some of these quilts when they're done.  (g)

I didn't find the ambition to pull out all the parts from previous months to make good photos.  Just a quick shot of all the pinks together this time.   Maybe  next  month  ...................................




I'm linking up with Angela of Soscrappy.  Hop on over there to see what everyone else is creating with their pink fabrics.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Big Squares Baby Block

A fast and effective way to make a baby quilt is to supersize the blocks.  I named this modern baby quilt Big Squares Baby Block.  It is quick to cut and sew and so fun to quilt up.  This one measures 40 x 40 and can be made from a scrappy assortment of squares.





I have prepared some easy instructions to share with you





and here is my Big Squares Baby Block quilt. I am donating it to our club for the local hospital children's ward.
