Birthday Blocks 2015- design wall

These are the blocks on my design wall. They were made for me by my wonderful Bee friends. Trying to make a decision on how to finish the quilt top. So thankful for generous friends.

Pumpkin Pincushion Free Pattern

To continue to share free patterns ideas, this one comes from Fiskars.
It is a cute pincushion very appropriate for the Fall season starting at the Northern hemisphere. If you are in the Southern one, try to make it in red fabrics for a great tomato pincushion for your Spring into Summer season.
I also would recommend to add walnut shell crumbs with the stuffing to add weight to your pincushion. This is sold where you get pet stuff in your stores. It is made to be added to reptile cages and such.
Little plastic pellets work as well.

Windham Fabrics free quilt patterns

If you are like me and my Bee, you make a lot of donation quilts. (We have so far this year, made almost 100 quilts.) If so, this site is for you. 
Thanks to generosity of many designers and the manufacturer, all you need is your supplies, a copy of any of the many, many patterns available there; and get busy.

Just one of the many patterns available

Woolie Bee at the QGGH show- July 2015

Sue Spargo came to the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston and taught a class  on her magnificent wool applique. We were so inspired that we started a Bee. Here are some of the art work that resulted from that class. Just amazing!

This last one is an original by Janice Schindler our bee master. One can look at it for hours and still not see all the details. Just lovely.
