Here's another quilt along by Beaquilter

If I have time, I'm gonna do this one also.  These quilt along give me practice on my piecing and then I have something that I can practice my quilting on.

Another Quilt Along

Another Quilt Along..

The Quilting Gallery  and Pat Sloan’s  have done it again. Another Quilt Along -  Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along   

I did one with them last year and learned so much.   
There will be lots of great blocks to make that you can use up those fat quarters you have laying around and not sure what to do with.  There will be some wonderful prizes. 

Come join the fun..

Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along

I will be sharing all the blocks right here on my blog along the way. Check out The Quilting Gallery blog and see the quilt. It is amazing.

New Ironing Board Cover

My Ironing board cover has seen better days. I've had it for more than 10 years, so it's about time for a new one. I went to see how much they where at the store, then realized I could make that for less. I already have fabric that I don't think that I wouldn't use in a quilt right now anyway.

So I made a new one today.   I even sewed the cording back on it to make it tight underneath.

Here's my new cover... Now I just need to get a new iron to go with it...

Got to love all the flowers!

Nice and colorful!

The 350 Blocks Project: 2013 - May Count

My May Count for the 350 Blocks Project: 2013 with Prairie Moon Quilts

Here is the running total of the blocks that I have done each month.  I can't believe how many I have done so far this year, I will keep track of the blocks until the end of the year, just to see how many I do in a year. I've never done that before. So it will be exciting.

Yearly Counts by Month.
Running Total = 438
January = 32
February = 246
March = 50
April = 15
May = 95

EQ7 Summer Drawing: Block 1–EasyDraw

I have been doing the EQ7 Summer Drawing.

EQ7 Summer Drawing: Block 1–EasyDraw

Here is my first block. I still need to put it in a quilt. 

These lessons are going to be great, because I have had the program for almost 4 years and haven't done much with it until this summer.  I'm gonna do every month. I may not put it into a quilt but I will make the time to do the lessons. 
If you haven't checked this draw and sew along yet go to Do You EQ's Blog and check it out.
