I Wish You a Merry QAL - Block 2

Monday, August 14, 2017

The Christmas quilt along is off to a fantastic start! More than 250 people completed Block 1 since it was released two weeks ago!

Now it's time for Block 2 of the I Wish You a Merry QAL! The Christmas Tree Farm block was designed by April Adams at JANDA Bend Quilts. She lives on a Christmas Tree Farm! The pattern and tutorial are on April's blog (tutorial here).

I've known for months what I wanted to make for this month's Island Batik Ambassador challenge. Then when I got my new shipment of Island Batik fabric a couple weeks ago, I completely changed my mind!

Retreat Sewing

Thursday, August 3, 2017

This past weekend, I was able to sew all day and night at a quilt retreat! Have you ever been to a quilt retreat? They are great for being productive, but they are also so wonderful for your mental health!
