April Showers....

Bring May flowers...so the saying goes. If that's the case, our hillside is going to be nothing but flowers next month :)

But all this rain helps me to stay inside and visit with Mr White, my treadle sewing machine. I have been working on some secret blocks, I'll tell you about them next month. Once done with those, I've been trying to get myself caught up on the blocks for our forum.

Our charity quilts are moving along smoothly. We've made one for each of our 3 charity groups, for Feb, March and well on our way into the April ones. You're welcome to come join us in this endeaver.

Someone said that something must of been put in the water system, as we have lots and lots of baby quilts to make this year too! LOL Not only are a few of our members expecting a bundle of joy, but many, many of the Grandma's are expecting Grandbabies too. And we all love making baby quilts, so we've been making them like crazy!

I can't wait for us to get our swap fabric back this time. We are doing a '30s repo swap, and I know what quilt pattern I want to make. It's Spring....so flowers, right?!...and one of my favorite blocks, the Irish Chain. I think I might applique some flowers in the big squares. Then again, these beauties would look lovely in a Jacob's ladder pattern too, with a crisp, white background...hmm, decisions, decisions... So many wonderful patterns to choose from. And the 30s prints are in high style right now. I am seeing loads of great patterns with them, all with crisp, white backgrounds. What is your favorite pattern to do with these 30's fabrics?

Keep your sewing machines humming merrily along, and come join us for a chat and fun :)

Till next time,
