April sewing with Sandy


It’s that time again.   We had the show and tell of our April projects on Tuesday at Woolies.   A small, but fun, group was there.  Looks like it’s getting to be that time of year when people are out gardening or travelling.   Anyway, I digress…better get on with the show.  

This was my month to pick the projects and I ended up picking 4 projects by two designers.  

First up is “Little Posies” by My Red Door Designs.  Sandy’s and my projects are almost identical because we picked up the pattern and frame when we were at the “Quilt, Knit, Stitch” show in Portland last summer.  



Mine… I think the only difference is the flower centers.


Another pattern by My Red Door Designs is “Stars and Stripes”.





Next up is our monthly “Banners Thru the Years” by Buttermilk Basin.  This one is “june”





And last is another pattern by Buttermilk Basin called “Basin Cotton Club – April”.



And mine…


So, that’s it for April.   Be back soon for the reveal of the little challenge blocks that I’m doing with Karen and Sandy.  

Hope everyone is enjoying some nice Spring weather.   Flowers are just starting to bloom here.  Such a wonderful sight to see all the colors after a drab winter!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anne

Fit to Frame challenge #2

It’s time again to post pictures from the challenge that Karen, aka, My Yellow Farmhouse, Sandy (no blog) and I are doing with a Lori Smith, From my heart to your hands pattern, called Fit to Frame #6. 

We are doing 3 blocks per month, so here are blocks 4 – 6. 

First up are Sandy’s.


and these are mine…


this is the progress so far.


and here’s what it will look like in 2 more months.

Fit to Frame Lori Smith

Definitely worth it!   I’m not sure if I’m going to frame it or just make it a small wall hanging.  Am thinking that if I put a small sashing in between the blocks, it will have a windowpane look to it.   Lots of time to decide. 

Now head on over to Karen’s blog and see what she’s done with the blocks.   Sandy and I are using wool applique on cotton backgrounds.  I think Karen is combining wool and cotton on her applique pieces.   

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter!  I hope you get to spend it with your family and friends. 

Hugs, Anne
