June 1, 2015

I always wanted to make a Missouri Puzzle quilt, so I made it a mystery and made a sample and now it's the BOM for June.
It’s not a hard block to make, just some simple little parts…

The quilt is finished and ready to go to the quilter, I’ll share a picture of it when it’s finished.  Here’s just one block.

April 1, 2015

The new block for April is the Star of Hope.  It’s another block with many names, but I liked Star of Hope the most.   Directions are here.  

And I have to put another plug in for the Mysteries For Relay group.  We share a new mystery ever six weeks or so, all it takes is a donation to my Relay For Life page to join.  $5 gets you one mystery and $30 gets you a whole year’s worth.  For more information,

March 1, 2015

Just a few updates for March.  I posted a new block, Dolley Madison's Star

and an updated Ohio Star Variation

The spring retreats are just a little over month away now, let’s home spring has showed up by then.
PS - I am sewing, but they are all top secret projects.  I actually started and completely finished two gifts in February, and started and finished a new mystery top also.  And I finished one UFO.  Plus I made quite a few BOMs for my BOM sampler, and I even made a few squares for my postage stamp quilt!

February 1 progress report

Yes there is some progress, in several subjects too.  First and most importantly, the 2015 Relay For Life year is officially under way.  I have a head start on my fundraising thanks to the fall retreaters and the Mysteries For Relay ladies.  Delaware Quilts will once again be an official sponsor of the Wicomico Relay For Life.

Today is Super Bowl Sunday and the Mysteries For Relay group just got the final clue for the latest mystery.  If you would like to join us and get this pattern and a new mystery every six weeks or so, all you have to do it make a $30 donation on my Relay page.  (Anyone joining in February will get the latest mystery as a free pattern.)  Go to for more information.   

And since it is the first of the month, I did manage to update the BOM page.  We have a new block this month,  I also updated
Sometime last year I decided I wanted to make ALL of the blocks I have on the BOM page.  There are over 125 blocks listed and more in the works, a lot of blocks.  I decided to make my samples 9 inch blocks, and use a variety of blues, yellows and white-on-whites.  What I’m going to do with all the blocks I’m not sure, no real plans yet, but I can report that I have 50 finished and several more already cut waiting to be sewn. 

I have not worked on my Postage Stamp quilt since the retreat in the fall, but I haven’t given up on it.  Actually the only sewing I have done are the BOMs.  However that’s about to be set aside too as I begin work on a special order.  (Top Secret for now)
