Daily Update - January 3, 2022
What am I Doing?
I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.
The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.
This pattern is Free on January 3rd only.
This ball was my first attempt at designing a hackysack. Well it is a little big so I just set it aside and made another one which was smaller. Now you can make this ball as part of a juggling set. You will need to make at least 3 to be able to call them juggling balls.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not Free.
Beads from this bead sheet would look great combined with clear glass and pearl beads and gold findings in any piece of jewelry for Spring!
This is the 18th quilt block tutorial in a series on how to make quilt blocks using the new Quilt as You Piece Method.

Phrase of the Day

Bigelow Mountain is a mountain in Maine. It is very close to where I live and can be seen just about anywhere in my tiny town. People actually hike up to the summit of it in the summer!
Here is a little bit more information about it from Google.
"What town is Bigelow Mountain in? Located in western Maine just east of the village of Stratton about 40 miles north of Farmington, Bigelow Preserve includes over 36,000 acres of public land. The preserve encompasses the entire Bigelow Range, which includes seven summits."
