It’s been a while….
So, I didn’t fall off the face of the earth! But it looks like I did fall off the quilting/blogging/reading websites/keeping up with tweets and emails/pretty much everything else bus! Things around here have been so busy, the poor sewing room is in disarray and I just keep adding to the fabric piles. (Apparently I have lots of time to shop online for fabric, just not actually use any of it!) I’m hoping to pick things back up soon, now that our nights aren’t filled with catching up on tv shows (hey, I’m being honest!) or other random things! Somehow, my little newborn baby is turning 1 year old next month! I’m not sure how that happened, because I was certain I just had her a few months ago! Crazy how time flies, I fully understand that statement now!! Little Mister is also on his way to being 3, so a co birthday party is in the works!
The quilt blocks below were created for the 4×5 Bee (sign up’s for the 2nd quarter are going on now!), and it’s another original Parfait Cafe design. (I always feel a little weird using the word original, as I feel it is very difficult to create anything truly original these days) This design is based off of a Dresden Plate, and this one is all machine pieced similar to the last Dresden that was posted. The middle circle is hand sewn on as an appliqué. I’m loving the rainbow one, I’m going to have to make an entire rainbow sampler quilt now!
And now, about the tutorials. Tutorials for the blocks will be posted, and the Diamond Blossom will be first up, but writing out the steps and documenting the process is taking some time. A few of the tutorials will be “mini” tutorials or overviews, since we just can’t get on paper everything we want to express about creating a certain block! I’m very sorry for those that have been patiently waiting for tutorials to pop up, and I am very sorry for not responding to emails in some time! I’m getting right on that!
