Bloom & Grow - Sisterhood BOM Quilt

Tammy of Tamarinis and Kate of Kate Colleran Designs have joined together to create a new block-of-the-month pattern called the Sisterhood quilt! I'm one of thirty bloggers that's teamed up with them to make a block from the quilt and share my own story of "sisterhood!" There's a quilt along happening for the quilt too, which sounds like a wonderful way to sew with friends and create your own quilty sisterhood!

An All PINK Exploding Heart Quilt!

Just a few weeks ago, a young mom in the local homeschool co-op that my kids attend was diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm teaching a quilting class for the kids at the co-op (we meet once a week for an hour), so I decided it would be a wonderful life lesson for the kids to make a quilt for the mom!

Knowing we just had one week to make the blocks before the mom was going to have surgery, I wanted to make a quick and easy quilt. But my husband reminded me that the Exploding Heart quilt was really the best choice, and I knew he was right.
