Some lucky fairy is living in style!

Such a lovely and happy scene to view in your own garden!

ha ha ha I have them all over...some my hubby has not even found yet...wait until he has to plug in the vacuum cleaner! We all need silliness!

BTW, I found the store while checking Pinterest...these seem to be quite popular!  I talked with the guy and he said he is going to be doing holiday ones:  Halloween and Christmas!!!

lol brandy--if I sewed blocks until I ran out of fabric, I would be sewing into the next century! ha ha

I feel like I am preparing for surgery or something...getting a space cleared, setting up the ironing board, taking out my baskets, etc. I probably won't really start until a few weeks...looks like I made a dent in my white stash so I will have to get that...

Excited to see how sloth wants us to put together the Icky Thump!

You have taken Ninni making to another level!

It would be so much fun to collect Ninni's with a nod to one's hometown, country, etc.

I love that you included so many things that I associate with our Northern neighbors...fun and funny Ninni!

..or if you are sloth or carolmb, one week...Grin...speed quilters!

I have these dollar store bins that I use for each block...I throw in the pattern, the fabrics, and the completed blocks...the worse thing is having to put all the pulled fabrics back where they belong after the swap...

Thanks, kayrun!

That pattern is one of my "go to's"...it is fast with larger needles and pretty simple...I will confess that for some reason, I kept messing up and spent a lot of time frogging complete sections at a time...with lace patterns, if you miss counting, the pattern gets all screwed up and frogging takes forever...there are no plain knit rows to save your but, so you have to frog one stitch at a time...

It will be a while before I do that one again! Grin

brandyk--there is no such thing as a mess up...ha ha just ask donniesgirl:  last round, I sent her three wrong size blocks -- she used them for the back!  Awesome!

I usually have a few I don't use in a quilt for one reason or another...I just use them for totes or pouches...nothing is wasted in this group! Grin

donniesgirl--I love the Polaroid quilt blocks!  What a fabulous way to use up all those cute prints I have in my stash!
I am going to cut for myself as well as you...does anyone want to do a side swap for just some fussy cut fabric squares while I am cutting? Grin

I am so excited for this round!  I am so glad there is a long weekend here in the USA since I want to clear out my craft space and start pulling out fabrics!

Need to make a list of things I might need, like new rotary cutter blades!


For those of us who are making the pixilated blocks for donniesgirl, here is a simple tutorial on how to speed make a block with such tiny pieces.  There are a lot of others as well, unless you really do want to sew together a ton of tiny pieces! Grin

This one uses gridded iron-on interfacing...not sure I would like the feel of interfacing in a quilt.
