Farmer's Wife Quilt Along
Last week I expressed my frustration to Cindy, who blogs at Spin The Bobbin, about the templates and the paper piecing problems I was having. Cindy and I met through our involvement in the Hands2Help Charity quilt. We have become chatty email buddies. She offered to send me some paper piecing copies that she was using and I made two blocks today and they turned out with perfect points and exactly 6-1/2" square! Thanks Cindy! I also started using my new organic cottons, Anika, by Monaluna. They are wonderful to work with and I love the quirky look of the prints.

I have been doing some stalking on Flickr of my secret partner's favorites in the Pretty Little Pouch Swap. Since this is my first pouch swap I am a little intimidated. There is some major talent in the group. I hope I make something that she will love. I'm going to decide tomorrow and will share after I get the fabrics picked out.
NewBee on the Block
I made my block for my first quilting bee. It is a Merry-Go Round block and it is really cute. I need to get it ready to ship off to Holly.
A Quilt for Baby Carrot
I liked this block so much that I decided to make a whole quilt using this block for my nephew's baby, due in November. He and his lovely wife already have a 2 year old daughter, who calls the baby in mommy's tummy "Baby Carrot". Here are the fabrics I am going to use. A mixture of Riley Bake and Michael Miller prints. They are having a girl.
I have also received three postcards that I need to post but will do that another day.
Thanks for stopping by...
