Sarah (no blog) made me do it....

I was emailing Sarah (no blog) about the Little Quilt Women of the Bible Quilt and Temecula Quilt a-long I was doing.  She then sent a picture of her 2" bow ties....remember the prior post where I had this wonderful bow tie quilt?  Well I started cutting out bow tie pieces last night while cutting my TQ blocks for the week.  Thanks Sarah...I think.  AHHHH don't know how I will keep up with all these wips.  It just made sense to cut out the bow ties with the other scrappy quilt blocks to get rid of my mountains of scraps.
I also saw this quilt that is constructed differently than any others I have done from Crazy Mom Quilts.

Isn't this cool?  Just think of all the scraps one would use.  She has a "recipe" for this quilt that will have you making one with new found freedom.  I can't wait to start mine...well after all my bow tie cutting. She is having a quilt along and I am late to the party, but will totally do this.

4 4" blocks a week QAL

pic from Temecula Quilt Blog
Are you making these along with Temecula Quilt Co?
I am....using up my scraps and bought the Quick and Easy Block tools app to try out.
 
Temecula Quilts has the actual booklet if you would prefer to go with that. I just wanted less paper/books on my shelf. The blocks have cutting directions for different sizes, but I am making the 4" size.

New kind of shoes?

As I was getting ready this morning, I go out into the bedroom and see this...
Buddy standing in an empty shoe box.  Not really sure why he was in it...maybe saying this is his personal space right now. Totally started the morning with a great laugh.

Striking quilt I need to make...

I found this quilt on Lisa Bongean's blog for their CA store summer block of the week.  I usually do one of their summer bow's but decided this year I need to finish prior ones. (Well this does sound good in theory).
I saw that their new store is doing this one...(click on pic to go to their store link)
This bow tie quilt was project was inspired by Ardie Skjoad's bow tie quilt shown here...Ardie...is Rhonda from Farmhouse Threads's Mom!!!
Well I decided I have block base, EQ, and other software to draft the block.  I also have so much repro fabric stash that I just could not justify signing up for another bow....so I am going to cut and do my own.  This quilt is so striking that I have to do it.

Catching up on Stars in a Time Warp

I have been posting my blocks in Flickr now and have a link if you would like to take a look.  Still need a second overdyed green and excentric print, but other than those I am all caught up.  Click on the picture to see my progress.  Now off to other boms.
