Thank you so much for today's post! I had not heard about this sew along and thanks to you, I now have a new project to work on! Thanks for writing a beautiful blog. I enjoy reading it with my morning coffee. Stay safe and healthy during this stressful time xoxo


I am mailing out a house block today for an area quilt shop. It's great that people are encouraging and helping each other at this time. I hope it continues long after restrictions are lifted.

This pattern seems to be such a winner. There have been multiple sew alongs featuring it and it just doesn't get old. I should pull mine out and work on it. Happy sewing!


This is going to be a happy quilt! I've been doing a lot of UFO finishing which is a good thing! I have the pattern for this project and also the Quarantine Quilt Along that Gudrun Erla offered. A couple of projects to reward myself when I have finished up a couple more small UFOs!

I have this pattern. I think I will dig it out and sew some houses! I need a new quilt for my hallway and this would be perfect.

I already made this one and gifted it last year. I think I'll just watch others and continue on my 4 sewalongs! You are right; it is addictive.


I've always wanted to make this quilt. Won't it be interesting to see all the different versions of it made during this difficult time. Stay safe.

SO cute! I have made these little houses before and they are great for scraps and quite addictive. Crazy times and they aren't going away anytime soon. Be well and be safe!

Love the start of your Village. So cheerful! Keep on keeping your spirits up, and thanks for brightening our days!

I finished this quilt last summer after working on it for a year. I would honestly say it is one of my favorite quilts ever!! I used all charm pack scraps. Too bad my charm pack box doesn’t look like I depleted it though!!
I too have s couple sew slings going. I shifted gears this weekend and have been making fabric masks for local medical facilities. Always something to sew!!

Take care!


Those bright colors are perfect for the house quilt! Our local shop's retreat was canceled this past weekend so some of us had a 'virtual' retreat checking in every few hours with progress. We've now switched gears to making masks that are in such shortage for medical personnel. There are several varieties & directions here if anyone else would like to join in.
If nothing else, it uses up some stash fabric while contributing to the cause! Thank you for posting something uplifting everyday! ❤️ Stay well!


As usual, you keep us informed. Thanks for the link for Villages. It is so nice that quilters are sharing during this time. Thank you for blogging.


What a fantastic idea! I haven't been on IG much and it appears I have been missing out.

I love the 1st day of the month bc Thelma does a virtual quilt show. She shows what quilts she has out on the beds and the walls and it is just lovely to see. I guess you know that already. You have linked to her for years. ;p

I love your fabric choice here. I can't wait to see what other sew alongs you are doing.

Stay safe. Have you and your husband had the pneumonia shot? I got mine 5 yrs ago. It really is a good idea. Can't convince my husband but after Covid-19 I think I might be able to get him to do it. ;p

love these houses! have downloaded and hope to get to this project....have plenty of scraps on hand, of course


You are a bright note in what can be a gray time. Thanks for sharing and helping us all stay upbeat. I love the houses. I have that pattern, but have not yet made it... But I have vowed to finish quilting my current project first!


Love the little houses. Wouldn't these make a cute border around a quilt.

I have seen your quilt and fell for it. I am glad to add another sew along. Thank you. Luckily, I'm not alone, but sew a lot anyway, so this can be a happy time to enjoy each day and rejoice in our health. Sewing does that for me. Enjoy the day!
