a quick reminder: tomorrow is the first of April so today is that last day to grab March's BOM as a freebie!
i've received lots of emails wanting January and February's blocks...i have them for sale in my etsy shop for a small nominal fee. all retired blocks will be available for purchase.

also- i'm going to ask how y'all would feel about me hosting another block swap. i'm thinking (20) 10" finished cake stand/basket blocks made from 30s repros and kona white. i'll post a jpeg tute for the blocks with all the details and i'll also design two settings to go with the block for your stitching pleasure..would you want to participate? i'm thinking a 2 month turn around starting the first of May with blocks being due in June....wanna play?? i've done this before with the spring swap and the sister' choice i have some street cred :)


  1. Count me in!
    I haven't worked much with 30's prints lately, but have a quilt being hand quilted right now of my 30 repro bow tie blocks from a swap. I'm ready for another project!

  2. Sounds like fun! I'm in.

  3. Wish I could but I will be out of town from May 10 until after the middle of June. No sewing machine! I will have withdrawal symptoms for that but the gorgeous scenery of Alaska will help. Also visits to every quilt shop in Alaska will enlarge my stash considerably!
