I Have Been Working On These Blocks For Weeks!!

I have always loved the Buggy Barn Quilts and I have purchased several of their books hoping someday to make one.




When Sue, my long arm quilter friend, offered to trade the piecing of her Buggy Barn quilt top for several quilts on her longarm, I was thrilled!!

So she brought it over and . . . 

I have been working on these STOOPID blocks for weeks and weeks ~



Now don't get me wrong, I still LOVE Buggy Barn quilts but I don't like making them.  I think the reason why is because I am a paper-piecing kinda girl - I love the precision, the exactness and clean look of each block.  Not so with these blocks.  It seems that even though I make each block exactly the same as every other block, they all turn out differently and so wonky!!

Now, if I want wonky, which I love, I want planned wonky!!  Ya know, paper-pieced wonky.  Plus, I have to square up EVERY SINGLE one of these blocks on purpose!!  Yiks!!  When I make blocks, even traditionally pieced blocks, I make them precisely so I DON'T have to square them up, they are already square.

There are 80 of these blocks and then they get pieced together to make 20 completed blocks and each of these blocks need to be squared up - ON PURPOSE ~


Then I will add sashing with corner medallions and borders~


and this is how it will look.  I am down to the last 10 hours so I am getting excited but they are still STOOPID blocks!!  LOL!!

And then Sue told me yesterday that this is probably the most difficult Buggy Barn quilt.  Well, that is why she wanted me to piece this one for her!!  Telling me that that made me feel much better though - if I can conquer this one, I can conquer ANY Buggy Barn quilt.  Maybe I will try another one - some day!!  :-))

Home from Guild and a GIVEAWAY!!

This is the most amazing guild that I'm in on Thursday night - Sew Small Quilt Guild.

The block challenge for November was learning to do a 9-patch and having fun with it.  I got mine quilted minutes before leaving for Guild ~




And now I have some binding to do for Slow Stichin' Sunday!!

Yesterday I showed the darling Row Robin where I got to do the 2nd row and here is the second row for my Row Robin quilt ~


I forgot to bring my camera, so Tammy took a picture on her phone for me and sent it to my email.  I am not sure how to crop it . . .  So here it is!  Carol, the gal running the Row Robin, did this row for me.  Isn't it fabulous??

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!

There is one darling gal, Lyn, in our Guild that does amazing work and THEN she embroiders and embellishes her quilts in the most delightful ways!!   She LOVES Crab-apple Hill patterns, so when I found this pattern I bought it for her just because . . .

Well, boo-hoo!!  She already had the pattern and has already made it up.  So, I told her I would take her new pattern and give it away here.  If you love Crab-apple Hill and Winter and embroidery, this is   for you.


Just leave a comment and let me know you would like to own this fun pattern and I will have Mr. Random pick a number Sunday night, so I can get it in the mail to you on Monday!!

Tomorrow Night is Guild!

Last month at Guild, I picked a name out of a basket for the person I was to create the second row on her Row Robin.  I picked Annette's name and here is her first row:


It measures 18" inches across.  Look how tiny those little flowers are and she pieced them - no paper-piecing!!  Yiks!!

Here is the row I made to add to it ~


In this Row Robin we are to use the fabrics the original owner provides but I did take a little poetic license and added the beehive fabric in the centers and the little bee fabric in the far right yellow block.  Hope she won't mind!!

And here is how they look together if she keeps them in this sequence ~


I love all the bright colors.  Tomorrow night I will be able to show you the second row on my Kaffe Row Robin.

Until then!!  Bee Happy!!
