Lots of Blocks!

I've been busy sewing up lots of blocks!
First up, I chose this block for March, for my month as the do. Good Stitches quilter:
 Road to Tennessee Block
(tutorial here)
I asked my stitchers to send blocks in bright solids;
it's going to be a fun quilt!

I've also been working on the
March blocks
(I accidentally made the smaller sized blocks first!)
 April's blocks, Lady of the Lake

And I've been doing a little practicing FMQing lately . . . 
these samples are destined for the back of a pillow.
I hope to have this finished up soon!

Linking up to: WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Great blocks. They are lovely, I especially like the Lady of the Lake blocks. BUT your FMQ practice is terrific. I am trying my hand at it lately, but I am not very good at specific patterns like flowers, I just love the flowers you did.

  2. Super blocks and your FMQ is great! I think I need a little more practice and some patience for mine to look good! Love the flowers!

  3. Love your blocks! The lady of the lake blocks are gorgeous.

  4. Your blocks are beautiful, and I really like your FMQ practice. The spiral squares are super cool!

  5. Love the inverse choices on those lady of the lakes!

  6. Some gorgeous work Michelle....I love the quilting and the colors in your blocks

  7. You have been busy! Guess you can use the small blocks in a a mini :o)

  8. The new tablet would be a further extension of these concepts
    and yet another step into the future of computing for Apple.
    Researches have also found the Broccoli also contains necessary enzymes
    such as myrosinase in it. It the radio was the only one that used to deliver the days news and weather updates.

  9. I am really digging the layout of the solid Tennessee blocks. Bright and cheerful!

    Also, I love your use of Kate Spain's fabric. She is one of my favorite designers.

  10. Those free motion quilting designs are beautiful! I wish I had 1/10 of your skill!

  11. awesome blocks but I'm especially impressed with your quilting!

  12. Vanity Fair is stylish and well written, and they push the envelope in celebrity reporting, giving readers if not a balanced representation, then at least an interesting angle to a well known personality.

    Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had a rough battle, when the movies related to them were released
    at the same time. However, today, the wedding photographers capture photographs of moments that are
    precious and that you would cherish all your life; and, when you
    least expects the wedding photographer to capture you.

  14. People sometimes tend to think, “if only I were a celebrity, everything would
    be better”. Who does not want to know what

  15. Great blocks Michelle! I really like the dgs blocks as I'm looking for a block to use in a Simply Solids bee. This would be a great contender!
    Your FMQ is looking fabulous too!

  16. It is considered to the start of the Arab Spring and would go a long way in forcing the politicians to effectively govern the
    country. Yet while viewers will inevitably make comparisons between Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric,
    they have very styles, as Diane Sawyer has more of a reputation
    for a 'harder' journalistic style. Above all the Hindi news websites is a
    real boom for the world.

  17. I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's
    equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which
    too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

  19. President Barack Obama has" turned the 1. A long pointillistic earpiece is barely visible just above the glass along the upper edge. Resolution is obviously massively increased, but so too is overall image quality, with far more accurate color reproduction. Still, the Kindle is probably the slide show sexcams capability -- especially for camera makers.
