Block of the Month

Hi Everyone -

Don't faint - I actually cut out and pieced the first BOM that I'm doing with my friend Joy! It is the Kansas Troubles "Pinwheels in My Garden" (you can see it on the previous posting). Our quilts will be different so I'm looking forward to watching mine as well as hers "grow." I'm only a few months behind :) but I was pleased with the results.

I'm still plugging along on the Wool Crazy block - I have been pretty picky with my stitches - taking some out since I didn't like how they looked from a distance - too bright for me. SO I'll probably be working on this for months to come but the handwork is relaxing.

Whatever you are doing, take a break, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and pick up your stitching - even for a short while - it will relax your soul. Happy Sewing!


  1. Great blocks! I love Pinwheels in the Garden! :) Christine

  2. Lovely work! You did a wonderful job!

  3. I think it looks great and yes it does take time, but sewing is so relaxing why that's what it is all about lol!

  4. Awesome work Kelli!
    Love the pinwheel block and your "wool" is coming along beautifully!

  5. Your block looks terrific Kelli! Take your time with the wool crazy block. You want to be happy with the finished look. I'm off to stitch down a binding and the tea is in the pot. Cheers, Ann :-)

  6. Hi Kelli!
    I agree that the wool work is a great companion piece to keep somewhere near the favorite chair...a little at a time~
    best of luck with the project!
