She has a bit of a disaster this month with her blocks – which I’m sure we can all relate with…She ended up sewing both of her finished blocks together, when she went to do the decorative stitching on them…she ended up sewing the two of them together 🙁 not just once but 3 separate times…aww Shannon, what a pain but your blocks look great and they’re finished on time!!

Beth  – just under the wire. Beth’s an accountant and during tax season it’s hard for her to find time for herself – but she did get her blocks finished, nice going Beth!!

Life is Beautiful – Month One (198)

Life is Beautiful is such a super neat block of the month because the method doesn’t waste anything…and if your a fan of creamy purples, light greens, yellows and silks – this is the block of the month for you 🙂

 You cut away the backing fabric behind your stitchery and that piece becomes the center for your next block..it’s amazing!

Until next time, stay happy and creative with this tip:

Time spent watching a quilter on TV might teach you something, but it doesn’t get the quilt made.
