Quiltsy Cares - Christmas All Year Block 1 - and Quilt Guild Night

Yesterday my Etsy team started our annual month of featuring the quilts and handmade items we make for charity - a month of Quiltsy team members making the world a little warmer!  Today is the day that my donation is featured.  I chose to donate a quilt to our local CASA program.  These quilts go to children in foster homes.  You can see more about my donation HERE.

After releasing my second Christmas All Year block, I realized that I never put the first block on my blog!  Oops!  Here it is:

Looks pretty tricky, but if you look close, you will see that it's all half square triangles.  The pattern is now for sale on Craftsy for a small fee, but if you sign up for my newsletter you can get it at no charge and be all caught up.  Block three will be out on March 25th.

Lastly, I had a pleasant evening at the Coos Sand 'N Sea Quilt guild meeting.  Our program was very fun, it was on Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.  We used our brand new powerpoint projector for the first time, and enjoyed watching Bonnie Hunter debone a man's shirt.  If you haven't seen the video, it's a hoot!

I didn't think I had a very productive month, but when I got my quilts out for show and tell I realized I had gotten a lot more done than I thought.  I had my Island Batik Mini Love Challenge, (and everyone was pleased that I was going to be an Island Batik Ambassador again),
I showed this sample for a beginner's class I am teaching this month.

I also shared my finished owl quilt - you'll be seeing more of this later.
I think they enjoyed hearing about my Project Quilting project as well!  I hope some of them will consider playing along as well.
And here I am in the sewing room, lots of pattern writing needs to happen this week.  Seems like I'm either on the computer or sewing like mad, but I'm loving it!

Here's to a happy March - it's National Quilting Month - so let's whoop it up and get quilting!

Hi Pamela. I signed up for your newsletter yesterday and you did send me the first Christmas block. I wanted to thank you for that. I was sick for about three weeks in January so I thought I had missed your post during this time. I am glad that I will now be able to sew along with you. Thanks again.

Hi Ms. Pamela,

I subscribed to your monthly newsletter, and in your first email I received the link for the January block. I have not received anything for February. Can you verify that I am still enrolled?

Thank you in advance,

Minie R.
