Boot scoot and boogie

over to Molly's place she is giving away a great years subscription to Mccall's quilting magazine..what quilter would not want that!! she has some wonderful ol' time country music to listen to while your browse what projects she is on...

I also found a blog that is posting other broken stars check out Lori's blog she has some stunning broken stars to show you...

Dorothy had asked what I had done on my applique adventure and I didn't post it.. so I will show you..now it may not look like alot but it was really..these pieces are big..big..big!! It's not like I was doing alot of talking and eating homemade cookies or anything...

I also wanted to show you some of those wonderful little brown bird blocks from that night that Virginia had hidden in her box of applique treasures.
Some people had used a pigma pen to draw all the stems but if you click on the picture you will see she embroidered it all

I will leave you with dreamy eyes as you enjoy these blocks..she had more but I don't want to overwhelm you.. Virginia is the one that was doing the dancing bears.
I had to take a picture of her little needle case and goodie bag as well..glad I did cause you can see these are not big boxes..

Going to a quilt guild meeting tonight so not working on broken star quilt hopefully tomorrow


  1. Wow those little brown bird blocks want me to start mine, but I'm still trying to perfect my stitching before starting. Are your BIG blocks that Love Letter one?


  2. Your applique block is looking so pretty... I love those fabrics! And, oh, my, those brown bird blocks are AMAZING! How beautiful. Thank you for sharing Virginia's secret stash! :)

  3. Deb did you know that the Little Brown Bird is on my list to do also? I have most of my fabric selected. I thought I would use a combination of embroidery and pen for the stems ect. but seeing the embroidery makes me think maybe I will stick with that when I start.
    I have added you to my google reader and intend to keep checking up on you :)
