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.

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.
