The Theme Reveal 2018



theme reveal #atozchallenge 2018 blogging

It’s that time of year again. I’m about to blog every day in the month of April (except Sundays) for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Welcome to you if this is your first time participating. Welcome if this is your first time reading. For myself, it’s Year #5. Where has the time gone??

  This year has been somewhat of a panic for me though I have to admit. I wasn’t as prepared and I am a bit embarrased. It’s not like April doesn’t come around every single year. But once I decided to add my name to “The List”, I bit the bullet and plunged in up to my neck. I’m not drowning so that’s the main thing, right?!

To guide me along this year, I’m using what I know for my theme. If you are a follower of this blog already, you’ve probably guessed it. And you would be correct if you guessed a hand made theme.

The main fabrics of choice

So this is the second year I will blog each day with a quilt block. As a bonus I’m going to reveal at the very end the finished quilt top from last year’s challenge. So hope you’ll check back each day to see the finished block for each letter of the alphabet.

Don’t forget to head over to the official site for the other Theme Revealers as well as entrants of this years Blogging from A to Z Challenge. There are so many wonderful entrants and a topic to interest everyone!



Grandmother’s Favorite/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

Grandmother’s Favorite is the name of this block and is a sentimental choice. I had such loving grandmothers. I’m sure many people have those feelings when it comes to theirs as well. So a place in this quilt to honor grandmothers is absolutely mandatory.  Grandmother's Favoritecollage

Join me again tomorrow for more of the April A to Z Blog Challenge 2017!

The Color is Determined/A to Z 2017 Theme Reveal


Just a short post today.I’m diving in once again with my fellow A to Z Patriots. Beginning Saturday, April 1st (no foolin’ here), I’ll have a post a day (except Sundays) for the entire month of April. I am going with another “Handmade” blog theme. This year I’m calling it, “Quilts and Quotes”. I’m creating a quilt block for each letter of the alphabet and adding a positive quote, saying or tidbit for each day as well.

Sorry, no pics until the Challenge has begun. I hope you’ll check back each day to see how the quilt-making evolves.

Til the ‘day of submergence’, I will keep up with my normal style, including Thursday Doors with the well-respected Norm 2.o and friends.

 Happy Monday Everyone!

Soft & Sweet/Sunday Sampler

Sunday Sampler

 I had a little motivation to start a baby blanket around the beginning of the month. It started as a color test, to see how I liked the wave pattern and the color choices.


January 5, 2016

Nearly 20 days later, we have one more round of colors to add and this one is ready for a special baby.


Weaving in those ends this evening.
