This month's block has been delayed until now, and even then, it wasn't the block I planned.

The First Official Day of Lockdown

Posted by on 26 March 2020 | 1 Comments

Well, here we are... last night at midnight we were officially in lockdown. My plan is to do updates, not every day but at least once or twice each week. I do hope to spend 15 minutes each day working on some part or page of a journal and my blog posts will be a great way to record it.... a diary almost.

Elizabeth Barton has always been a lover of scrap quilts.... however not of tedious cutting out of specific shapes and pattern matching.... instead, she came up with a very different way of approaching the use of scraps.

This month is fast coming to an end and I realize I haven't made my Christmas block! Since I enjoyed working with EQ last month, I decided I would use it again but this time to create a foundation pieced block. I was thinking along the lines of a Christmas tree so I played around and came up with this block...
