FEBRUARY--I'm A Little Ahead For A Change!

BOOT BASH BLOCK #2 is up and ready for you to take and stitch.  I hope you like it and if you do, please LET ME HEAR YA!!  WOOP WOOP~~~

Machine or hand stitching is interchangable.  There is optional embroidery to do on the boot top in case you don't want to use a fabric that provides the decor.  There may be a problem with the size the January block printed out.  FYI--The block is to be 8 1/2 inches and should fill the space.  ENJOY!!

Caden had a birthday this month.  Nana kicked in with some cupcakes for a school party.  I thought ya'll might want to see them.  They are not professional, but I thought they were cute. His name is Caden and is now 8 years old.  He told me he needed 27 because he needed to feed his class and all the other 2nd grade teachers.  I wonder if that is the rule---LOL 

I am behind on my Civil War Block of the Week that is sponsored by Barbara Brackman.  I did get block 4 finished today  I love the way the fabrics worked in this block.  Sadly enough it is too small.  It is suppose to be 81/2 inches and this one is 1/2 inch too small.  It is back to the drawing board.  I hate working with odd sizes of strips (1/16 inch--shish) and triangles for this very reason.  Math is not my strong suit to say the least.  I will cut my center square pieces bigger this time and trim down to the right size and then add my sides and oversized corners.  Bigger is better I always say.  At lease when I can trim down. 
TEXAS TEARS and I'm crying too!  LOL  I won't show this block again.  My second one will look just like this, BUT, it WILL be the right size. 


I want to close this post with a picture of a quilt made by a dear friend, Annie.  She is a member of my Wacky 6 Pack Quilting group.  It is a Texas quilt made up of blocks made by our group.  Mine is on the top right--a Texas steer.  This quilt has been quilted twice.  The first time by someone who--well--let's just say she did no do a vey good job.  Annie had to pick out all the stitches and then take it to another quilter.  Not a pretty story, but it's a very pretty quilt. 


No Bitchin, just stitchin!

Beautiful square to be sure and I love the boot too.

Thanks for the second block! Love that Texas!

I like the fabrics in your Texas Tears. It's too bad it isn't the right size because it is so pretty! Maybe use it with a little larger stripping? Or twist and turn the blocks when set? Or strip them all out to a larger size?

Tonya said...
