Bloggers Block of the Month # 4

The pattern for Block Number 4 of the Bloggers Block of the Month came out today. I like this block very much and the pattern can be found HERE On Pat Sloan's Blog.

I barely got Block #3 done before Block #4 came out! But, I had some time for sewing and so I've already done #4.

BLOCK NUMBER 4:



Here are all four blocks so far:

Bloggers Block of the Month, Block Three

Its so good to reclaim my sewing room, even though there are still some stray Christmas things in there. I bet I'm not the only one whose sewing area turns in to a present wrapping and stashing area this time of year!

Here is my Bloggers Block of the Month, Number Three, which will be part of a Christmas quilt when finished.

This third block is called "SPLIT STAR"

Turned two different ways!




Go HERE to Canton Village Quilt Works for more information about this Block of the Month.

The Pillows



These pillows and pillowcases are ready to be given as gifts for Christmas. I think its important that gifts be something useful and I think everybody can use an extra pillow. Its also nice when gifts are personal and each of these is different and hopefully will be something that fits the personality of the person receiving them.

Another great way to make these useful is to use them as a gift bag. This idea came from Freda of IMPERA MAGNA. The pillowcases go together so quickly, you still have time to whip one or two up!

As for me.... I've called off any more sewing until after Christmas!

Another Pillowcase



This fabric line is called "Summer House" and therefore it is perfect for my summer loving daughter.
