#ParkBenchQuilt Block 3 - Hopscotch

Saturday, August 23, 2014
Early this year, my latest Block of the Month (BOM) design, Park Bench, hit stores, and I've started a series of posts showing off the blocks you're making of each design. Each of the blocks is named for favorite memories and moments in parks. Block 3 is Hopscotch. The path from outside of the block into the center looks so good for some Hopscotch jumping!


I've been collecting pictures of blocks as quilters have been sharing them on Instagram. I'm loving how your blocks are coming together and the fabrics you pick to make your quilt unique.






















Have you ever been a part of a BOM group or shop program? Do you think you would like to try one now?
Post pictures of your blocks, top and finished quilt using #ParkBenchQuilt and you might find your work featured in a future blog post.

Do you have a favorite hopscotch in a park moment?

#ParkBenchQuilt Block 2 - Ball Game

Saturday, August 9, 2014
Early this year, my latest Block of the Month (BOM) design, Park Bench, hit stores, and I've started a series of posts showing off the blocks you're making of each design. Each of the blocks is named for favorite memories and moments in parks. Block 2 is Ball Game. The 4-part diamonds remind of the bases on a baseball diamond.


I've been collecting pictures of blocks as quilters have been sharing them on Instagram. It's so much fun to see your blocks come together and the fabrics you pick to make your quilt unique.





























Why do you love being a part of a BOM group or shop program? Or, why do you prefer working on a Park Bench quilt on your own?
Post pictures of your blocks, top and finished quilt using #ParkBenchQuilt and you might find your work featured in a future blog post.

Do you have a favorite ball game in a park moment?

Happy Hex-iversary! The Hex N More ruler is 2 years old today!

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
Happy Anniversary
Hex N More!
She's 2 years old today!
Here's some fun info about the Hex N More, in case you haven't been acquainted with each other yet.
What makes this ruler so special is that you can use it to cut 4 different shapes in 4 sizes each!!


The ruler comes with FULL COLOR instructions.
All of the pieces can be cut from strips.


When the Hex N More was first launched, she had 2 full-sized quilt pattern and 3 little pattern companions.


Now she has 2 Block of the Month books (Toes in the Sand & Park Bench), 7 more full-sized quilt patterns, a companion ruler, the Sidekick, and a Mini Ruler little sister, Mini Hex N More! And other pattern designers are also using the Hex N More in their designs, too.





Hex N More makes some fun shapes. You can cut jewels, triangle, hexagons & half hexagons, all in four different sizes each!




Hex N More is a fabric strip friendly ruler. Here are some action shots of how she cuts some of her shapes from a strip.
