Small Blog Meet and where to go from here!

Have you ever been over to Lily's Quilts?? She has fresh beautiful ideas! She also has a little linky guy for small and large blogs alike.

I know the linky is supposed to be a recap of what you finished in Feb, but if y'all recall I just did that!!  So to those of you who are regulars here I won't show you what I just did! Silly me!!
I think instead I am going to bore you with what I THINK I might do in March!! hehe

So you already know I have finished my obligations for March! Plus I have already finished up my swoon! I think I will have to go to a quilt retreat this month because I realized I do not have ANYWHERE in my house to even begin to try to sandwhich that mamouth beast!! LOL Our guild has getaway weekends at the Deere-Wiman House and it just so happens to be only three blocks from my house! Very convenient!! LOL So that will be my task for the getaway!
Now I cannot decide what I am going to do! I have all of those lovely 30's prints and I think I know what I want to do with them, but I am not quite sure! And since this will be for ME I really want to make sure it is what I REALLY, REALLY want! phooey!
         OK Amanda, and Amanda are both pregnant! (one is a Mommy of a kiddo I watch and the other is a fellow Firewife!) And can I tell you I am SSSOOOO thrilled NEITHER of them is going to find out what they are having! I LOVE IT!! I think that is the way it should be! OK so I have to come up with two unisex quilts! I did however think about making one boy and one girl and praying... What are you thoughts? Any great patterns you want to direct me to?? One is due in late July the other in early Sept!!
         I am also toying with the whole New York Beauty thing. But I have to tell you and please don't hate on me, I don't like the look of them! I do however think this would be a GREAT way to get better/learn paper piecing and curved seams! So in that aspect I think I might just join in the fun! Oh, my other thing... I DO NOT LIKE BATICS! I know I'm a hater!! LOL
       Done babbling! Give me insights on what I should do now! It is kind of like making dinner, I love to do it, I just don't want to be the one to make the menu!! LOL is that wrong of me?? I am certainly one of a kind! Love it or hate it, it is me!!


  1. I think you are right about the New York Beauty being a good way to practice. I'm on the fence myself whether I like the look of it or not. Have fun and enjoy your March!

  2. Just saying hello after finding you on Lily's small blog meetup. Love your header - can't wait until pool weather!

  3. Just popped over from Lily's Quilts. I LOVE your blog header - how cool is that!

  4. Hello! I found you through Lily's Quilts. I have mixed feelings about New York Beauty blocks too - I think it would be good to learn the skills, but I don't know if it would interest me enough to finish a project. I haven't done any paper piecing, but my group for do Good Stitches is going to do the Lone Starburst Block from a tutorial on so I'll throw that idea on the table for you too! No curved seams but its a start for paper piecing. Good luck with your March goals!

  5. sounds like you have some good plans on what to do for march. for the baby quilts just make them both yellow and then do the binding in pink and

  6. Popped in from the SMB. I have joined up to the NY Beauty QAL, purely because I want to learn how to do it. Some of the photos in the Flickr group are very scary. In the meantime I have been following the Littlest Thistle's Foundation Paper Piecing for the Terrified and can highly recommend it. Check it out below

  7. You're not going to believe this but I don't like Batiks or the New York Beauty thing either!!! I don't do paper piecing and am not real interested in pursueing that technique right now. I have so much other techniques that I like better.

  8. Ha! I love batiks and think NY Beauty blocks are just that-- fabulous and beautiful! But, to be honest, I took a class a few years ago and made a few blocks and just wasn't feelin' it. So I don't think there will ever be a NYB quilt in my future. I shall just enjoy them from afar.

    I have not been to Lily's Quilts. I think I'll head over there right now and check it out. :)
