The first block is by Pat Sloan and is called Hearts AFlutter. Great for Valentine's day. Here's mine:
I am using stash for this, although I did pick up a yard of the background with the little pluses on it so that I would have more variety.
Here's my Bloom block for this week. Loving these!
Do you ever struggle with your sewing machine pedal creeping away as your sewing? I have tried a few different products to prevent this and none of them have worked too well. I found a tutorial on Pinterest for this one and thought I would give it a try. It only took about a half hour to make. So far it's working well!
Really easy to make. Here's where I found the tutorial: Machine Foot Pedal Pad
I have been busy packing for my annual quilting retreat that is coming up on Thursday (YAY! only 4 more sleeps!). I have FIVE UFO's packed! That's pretty ambitious but some of them should go pretty fast. Three of them are blocks that I did in various quilt-alongs and challenges over the past few years that just need sashing and borders.
While packing I have had the opportunity to clean up my sewing space so I feel pretty good about that. I'll be all organized when I get back!
See you again soon with lots of pics of my progress hopefully!!
