Blue Diagonal



I would love to share today our newest Diagonal Quilt.  For those interested you can find the pattern on Craftsy.  This is our 3rd quilt and 4th total diagonal quilt done (one was a table topper)


The quilt pictures at the park, I think turned out pretty fantastic.  I love the scrappy binding and the scrappy look of the piecing of the quilt.  This is my favorite so far.


Tanya will find this funny, but I don't like the above picture.  Not because it looks bad, but because its sideways.  Making the quilts I get pretty set in my brain what is the top and the bottom and this picture is on its side.  I believe the left side is top if memory serves.


Speaking of going the wrong way this one is upside down, but I like it better this way.  Any way so maybe my considerations of top and bottom need to change.  Side note from Tanya, if I took the last picture the other direction, the piecing wouldn't show up.

No Reply Bloggers! Are you one?


Back on March 27th I posted this quilt with the offer to get the pattern for the quilt for free if you go and post on Craftsy. (I still offer the free pattern by way)

Now today's post is not about that quilt or even the offer but the amazing response I had too it.  I had I think 8 people in a row all go make nice comments on Craftsy and then left me a message on the post asking for their free pattern.  Great I hit reply and to my utter amazement almost every single person that took the time to post a comment was a no reply blogger.

The thing that amazes me is how many people that comment are no reply bloggers and may not realize that you are one.  I will not try to explain how to fix it (as many posts in the past have explained how to do such) But I want to plead with all of my followers to fix this. For the 8 or so people that already commented and have not gotten there pattern, it was not that I did not want to give it too you, it is that I can't figure out how to contact you.  If you are not sure if you are a no reply blogger please put a comment here and I will reply and tell you that you are not.  Of course if you don't hear from me you are.

Oh and if you are a no reply blogger and still would like responses to your comments (and you don't want to lose your no reply status, is there a reason to want this?) Please put your email into the comment you can do something like rhealey101(at)gmail(dot)com if you are worried about them web spiders from tracking down your email.

HST #2




Another HST quilt for our collection.  As some may remember we started this HST thing many months back making 3 quilts * 3 fabrics.  This quilt was the 2nd quilt from the 2nd fabric.   You can find the pattern for this quilt on Craftsy.


Tanya for these quilt,s took a trip to the park with Julia and took some pictures of quilts while Julia played.  Tanya and I are still playing with our pictures.  We are happy that its warming up and greening up as outside pictures are great.


Its funny that as Tanya takes pictures the only flaw I find in them is that the quilt is upside down.  Now how can a non directional quilt be upside down?  Simple I quilted it and I quilted it going the other direction.  So its wrong but for every one else its just fine.


Last of all I like this simple quilt in a pile great picture Tanya.  Thank you for taking pictures of the quilts while the sun shines.

Reunion Rag Quilt


I finally used my sewing machine again.  (This by Tanya)
Imagine, yet another rag quilt.  You can find our pattern for it on Craftsy.




Another quilt with Reunion.


Pictures were taken at park, while Julia played.


Someone keeps me busy, so not a lot of time for sewing.  Richard has her older sibling to help keep an eye on her so he is able to sew more.
