For Lou's Beautiful Eyes (October's quilt)

For Lou's Beautiful Eyes




I have sent you the fabric, already cut into pieces A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Arrange your pieces edge to edge to match the pattern above and below.

Mark the center of each apex and each hollow.



These will serve as reference points for sewing each curve.

Stitch your pieces together using a seam allowance of 1/4" referring to the reference points. (I found it easiest to pin the pieces together, but you are all probably better seamstresses than I.)

It is normal for the ends of each piece not to match, your block will be re-cut later.


Iron seam allowances out from the center largest piece. Clip curves to help everything lay flat.




Please trim the edges to be a square.  I will trim them all to size once I get them all.
Your finished squares should look like this:




I am sending you pieces to make two (2) blocks.

That's it!  Thank you so much!

More Christmas squares for Emily

I'm with Amy and Camie. I really like this square. I LOVE, LOVE Emily's fabric choice and the square was easy. 
(Unless you don't pay attention to the directions and make SIXTEEN half square triangles!) 
Luckily, I found some extra fabric online and did it right!

Keeping Cool with Christmas

It has been kind of hot and muggy here the past couple of days, and no air conditioning. boohoo!  So I kept cool by sewing up these fun houndstooth squares for Emily.  Such beautiful fabrics and such an easy pattern with a big wow effect.  This quilt is really going to be fun to see all finished up.

Snow Globe for Amy

Amy, this was such a fun square! I apologize for taking so long. But it is "in the mail".  I can't wait to see it finished.


Merry Christmas!

America, The Beautiful!

Over the past 2 years, 12squared has been helping me with a patriotic quilt. I finished it in time to display it for the 4th of July! Woo Hoo!! (Can you find your squares? lol)



I quilted a few pillows to match! Including some freehand stars on the front!


It makes me feel like I am at the Olympics just to see these! : )

Thanks for all of your help.

cock your head for this one

It was upright when I uploaded it!
Emily- I loved this.  Everything you touch turns to gold and I enjoyed this pattern.  I need a new project to work on so I might just be a copy cat AGAIN and start one for myself.  Maybe even the same fabrics.  Because I don't fall in love with my projects as much as I do yours. :)

Christmas Houndstooth for August

Let's just keep this Christmas theme going, shall we? 

I've always loved this Houndstooth quilt design: 



I found some great Christmas charm squares (Juniper Berry by Moda) and I'm so excited to make my first holiday quilt! 


 You'll get fabric in the mail: 8 print charms and 8 solid charms. Draw a diagonal line on half of the white charm squares.


Create two half-square-triangles by sewing 1/4" seams on either side of the diagonal line and trimming on the line.



Press seam OPEN (I found this to result in a straighter seam).

TRIM ALL SQUARES (HSTs, one print, and one solid) to 4.5" & arrange as shown:


Sew together. Repeat 3 more times to make 4 squares.

*If you have a directional print, place your diagonal line as follows in order to keep the print going in the same direction!





Thanks! Maybe the weather will cool off soon if we keep making Christmas projects. *fingers crossed*
