Today, March 19th, is NATIONAL  QUILTING DAY....


In the quilting world we meet other quilters from all over the globe. There is such an amazing bond between us all and a genuine feeling of 'caring'. We have come together in so many ways and through different means to help one another. 'A block' is all it takes...a simple  'Block'  that speaks volumes from the Heart.

Thank you Helosia for your wonderful comment.

"Cute blog! The world of patchwork makes us travel to each point we take in our work. Your blog made ​​me travel as a needle and thread in the fabric. Thanks for sharing. A big hug from southern Brazil, Heloisa"

Speaking of 'Blocks' goal has been to introduce the 'Wonderful World  of Quilting' to persons in the Caribbean. I have begun with my island. Jamaica. Tremendous encouragement came from Lisa,, where I bought my Bernina - Thanks Lisa.

At the moment, I have an amazing group learning to Quilt - when one strokes their fabric - I know the passion for Quilting will only continue to grow!
As time continues to tick away on National Quilting Day
I would like to wish you all a Happy Quilting Day.

The Hawaiian Quilt

What colour sashing would you use? Would you use a sashing?
We welcome your comments......

Enjoying my Studio

I have been reading my favourite 'Quilting Blogs' and am so thrilled to read
the different ways Quilters tidy their Studio after each project.

Before a new project, I have to be organised.  Here's the problem...
I stroke my fabrics...Ohhh.... I had forgotten this FQ....
Oh My...These Jelly Rolls are so beautiful.....
As for these Layer Cakes.....they would be perfect for 'that pattern' I saw last week...
hmmm... now which Magazine???...with a cup of Blue Mountain my chair
flipping through my magazines....This is heavenly!

The fabrics, the magazines, the tools!....

Let me try a Dresden Plate with my Darlene Zimmerman  EZ tool.
This fabric is perfect.......

What have I been doing?  My head is about to explode with all the step at a time..

I have to regroup... so off I go to the hills.....of Jamaica.

Our beautiful island in the sun...we have the best of both worlds
The beaches and the hills........
Time spent by yourself is never wasted, see the gate open, walk the path
and enjoy your journey.
