January Jennifer...

Ta da!! I'm never early for anything...and yet, somehow I managed to get Jennifer's block done before the end of the month! Maybe this is a sign of what's to come in 2014 for me...

Jennifer, I had so much fun making this block. I'll pop it in the mail asap. You always pick the greatest patterns. I was a bit nervous about cutting without my ruler and then sewing the blocks together evenly. My sub-blocks never were exactly 8". I'm struggling to figure out why this continues to happen, but think it is a combination of my old old machine, its tension, and a slightly bigger 0.25" guide on my machine...anyway, I think I pulled it off, even with some uneven edges in my sub-blocks. Maybe this is the year I'll get a new machine. There is something I like about using the machine my mom used when I was born though... anyway, the quest for a perfectly sized block will continue for me.

Warm January wishes. We had such miserably cold weather here, but now it feels spring-like outside, which feels weird. Bring back the snow! Go away rain! xo  Katy


  1. Oh Katy, I am thrilled with your piece for my quilt. I absolutely LOVE it!! Thank you so much! It's so cool the way some of the pieces seem to be weaving in and out from each other. It's just what I was hoping for. Thank you again!! xoxo

  2. That small black square in the middle is really strong Katy. Love that green too and how the range of browns and what look like taupes work together.
