I have another couple of block made for the new block of the month. This is a fun quilt to make. It looks like a lot of work but if you did the Vintage Rouge BOM, you know that many of the pieces are cut from stripe fabric and not sewn at all.

I have been working on the blocks from our new block of the month called House Warming. They are going together quite easy. And while I was taking this picture of my blocks, UPS came in with a box of fabric.
I’ll post more pictures of the blocks as I get more done. We will start this block of the month (BOM) about mid May.

“BLOCK” by Missouri Star Quilt Company is a magazine they design, produce, and publish all in house at MSQC! There are no ads in it, not a single one. They take tutorials that Jenny has done on the YouTube channel and write the patterns, then make the quilts out of new fabric and write stories and guides to go along with them. Lots of photos, ideas for projects, and patterns all written out, 10 of them, in every issue!
We will carry the magazine at QNG and I will have some available when she comes to Battle Creek to speak at the Calco Quilt Guild meeting on April 14, at Westlake Presbyterian Church in Battle Creek. Social hour at 6:00 meeting at 7:00pm. Everyone is welcome. She will sign the magazine for you.
You can pick up the magazine in advance or take a chance that I have any left at the meeting.

We had a buying frenzy when UPS delivered our new Bluebird fabric. I didn’t even have it checked in yet when these wonderful ladies decided they just HAD to have some. That was the fastest I have ever checked in a fabric order. Thanks ladies it was fun!!

What tips can you offer to our readers?
For instance, from Susan (American Patchwork and Quilting, April 2014 Issue 127)
A Helping Hand
To hold long lengths of binding in place while pressing, I slip a circle of elastic over the narrow end of my ironing board. The elastic functions like an extra pair of hands!
What tips can you share??

Lois took a paper piecing class at QNG with Joyce then went home and made this quilt. If you don’t know how to paper piece, Joyce with teach you.
