Carole,at From my Carolina Home, is hosting a Vintage Christmas sew-along, based on Lori Holt’s Vintage Christmas book for her FB group.


Thank you for sharing this. I will be participating in one - just not sure which one yet.

Also, I ordered The Promise last night and am looking forward to reading that. Please keep up the blog posts; sometimes they cost me an arm and a leg, but they are so enjoyable. :)


I have the Summer Moon book and love everything Carrie Nelson does, and want to get started on it soon. I’m doing the Moda Blockheads 3 and am pretty much caught up with it - right now. But, I have 5 quilts to make for others for graduations - if there will be any graduations...😢.
I did order the 2 books you posted yesterday and can’t wait to start on them.
Thanks for posting as much as you do. I love living vicariously through you!!!☺️

Thanks for your info on QA's. I'm drowning in my TX Twister blocks so I'm glad to see other things to look forward to. Have to turn off the bloom'n TV. Love that you are blogging every day, it's so hopeful and nice to be connected. Home alone is not what it's cracked up to be, so thanks a million. Will be looking into more books as well.

Thank you for some great information on quilt-alongs. Crazy times we live in. I am trying to limit my time watching the news. I am really trying to control my anxiety level. Hand quilting and hand appliqué seem to help a bit. I will be glad when this is over for sure. Take care, stay healthy Nicole.

So many great things to keep us busy!! Actually yesterday I finished my blocks for a year sew along with and it's called the Stash Buster challenge. It is a one block sew along and at the end of the year if you have at least 52 blocks sewn into a quilt, you get entered for the prize draws. I made 144 blocks in three months and there's a good chance that I'll get my quilt sewn together by December LOL!! I'll send you a pic, Nicole.


There's something for everyone! It's really a great way to use stash fabric to create something beautiful. I'm branching out to keepsake Teddy bears using a baby's first sleeper. The new mom caught me at a good time...when I need to keep busy! Oh, boy! Those pattern pieces are tiny--the newborn size sleeper is tiny!! Have a good weekend. Stay well!


I appreciate all of your posts you have given us. Plenty of inspiration and happy, creative thoughts to keep our minds temporarily off of our current reality. Take care and have a good weekend! Love ya and give Ozzie a hug!

Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts ( is offering a free scrap-busting QAL. It just started this week, and I believe that she releases blocks twice weekly. Simple blocks so far - they take about 30 minutes to make.


Sewin' Wild Oaks is doing a video SAL of her Little Orphan Scrappy pattern. So cute!


Thanks so much for the links to the free patterns to keep us occupied, much appreciated. Carolyn (from NSW, Australia)
