Blockheads 3 - Week 17

This is week 17 of Blockheads 3.  Betsy Chutchian has this little gem for us......
You can find the directions HERE

I hope you are all getting along well and your families are healthy. We are good. 

Like everyone else, I mix in some mask making in between other sewing.  I have made 4 versions of masks. Each one has their assets and debits. I found this tutorial makes masks quite quickly and I like how they fit.   

In other news, I got my Trip Around The World quilt back from being basted and I'm now hand quilting it.

I'm quilting with a big stitch and the thread is Aurifil 12wt. The needle is a John James milliner size 11.  This is going quite fast and I expect to be finished this weekend.

Lastly, the new patterns that feature the Harbor Springs fabric collection are in stock in the Etsy shop. Both downloads and paper patterns.  

When the fabric ships later this summer I will have kits for both of these quilts.

Who bastes your quilts? I am interested in seeing how you quilt this pattern. I am a very SLOW hand quilter!

I like seeing how your Blockhead blocks look! Carol in Texas

Love the blue and orange in your Trip Around the World quilt. Love the blue thread for the big stitch quilting.

So pretty. Thank you for the close up pictures of your big stitch hand quilting on your trip around the world quilt With a quilt
do you sit at your table to quilt a section at a time with your hoop ? I have not followed thru on my attempt to start hand quilting a small quilt I’m practicing my stitches deciding how to quilt a project is daunting as I want to like the finish. So many patterns or articles say “ quilt as desired “ or show machine quilted quilts it’s nice to see up close a choice for the small pieces in your beautiful quilt

I love that trip around the world.. do you use a pattern for it ? do you have it because Im tired of using the method of unstitching squares and then uniting them again. Thank you.. Izzy

I love your sea Side quilt. I wish you had made the box a tin


i couldn't believe that i would ever be re-unite with my ex-lover, i was so traumatize staying all alone with no body to stay by me and to be with me, but i was so lucky one certain day to meet this powerful spell caster Dr Akhere,after telling him about my situation he did everything humanly possible to see that my lover come back to me,indeed after casting the spell my ex-lover came back to me less than 48 hours,my ex-lover came back begging me that he will never leave me again,3 months later we got engaged and married,if you are having this same situation just contact Dr Akhere on his email: thanks very much sir for restoring my ex-lover back to me,his email: or call/whatsapp:+2349057261346

hindi ako makapaniwala na kailanman ay muling makiisa ako sa aking kasintahan, labis akong na-trauma sa pananatiling nag-iisa na walang katawan na manatili sa akin at makakasama ko, ngunit napakasuwerte ako sa isang tiyak na araw upang matugunan ito malakas na spell caster na si Dr Akhere, matapos sabihin sa kanya ang tungkol sa aking sitwasyon ginawa niya ang lahat ng makataong posible upang makita na ang aking kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin, sa katunayan matapos na ihagis ang spell ang aking dating kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin ng mas mababa sa 48 oras, dumating ang dating kasintahan ko. bumalik sa pagmamakaawa sa akin na hindi na niya ako pababayaan, 3 buwan mamaya kami ay nakipag-ugnay at nag-asawa, kung nagkakaroon ka ng parehong sitwasyong ito makipag-ugnay lamang kay Dr Akhere sa kanyang email: maraming salamat sa sir sa pagpapanumbalik ng aking dating kasintahan bumalik sa akin, ang kanyang email: o tumawag / whatsapp: +2349057261346
