Long Awaited Lonestar

The long awaited Lone Star Pieced in the Hoop is now ready! I'm so very excited to have it completed. I'm telling you the development of this particular design has opened a bunch of doors for harder to piece blocks.

Once you try it you'll say.. "Hmm, WOW, those point do align almost effortlessly!" You will see a bunch more multi-sectioned blocks to come but able to stitch out all in ONE hooping, so stay tuned.

Quilty Hugs,

My product find and it's new use!

I found the most amazing product to clean my car! I know you've seen the commercials but let me tell you what it does for an automobile.

1. Takes water spots off of glass and make them sparkle
2. Shines chrome like new
3. Removes those nasty love bugs that stick to your grill and paint
4. Removes tar and hard to remove stains
5. Cleaned the exterior leather

I love using this for cleaning my car.

Oh BTW, I know you've seen me sign my name using my nickname and I've decided to use it from now on. I need a new change so why not start with a new name (tee hee).

I'm back...

I have missed writing in my blog but life has it's little ups and downs. I'm finally on the "up" again. (smile). I hyper-extended my ring finger over a month ago and I'm just now able to type without pain. My finger is still sensitive, but it's not going to stop me from my goals.

Thanks to the help of MJ, Sandy & Angi, I was able to meet my first deadline on the book. THANK YOU GALS!!!! Today I uploaded over 25 single quilt block designs. I received several requests to take the Ida block sets and make singles from them so that's just what I did. I made rows 4-6 available as singles.

Tomorrow I work on photographing and writing instructions for the Lonestar quilt block. This is a new way of Piecing in the Hoop and I have to make sure the directions are clear. By figuring out how to make this block, I opened the door to several other types of quilt block designs that are not easy to paper-piece... but I DID IT!!!! Below is a glimpse of the Lonestar project that will be available March 31st.

Happy Sewing Y'all!!
