As we have a lot of new members to our group, this is an ongoing once a week challenge to see if we can, as a group, do a block once a week. We start off with an easy block and then it progresses to harder blocks. You have the full month to finish your blocks and post as we go along. It is designed to test our skills and not all blocks are pieced. Some might be applique or paper piecing. If you don’t want to do a block, then you can pass on it. They are not designed to be put together as a quilt as there is a variety of styles and sizes. There is also no real theme for the blocks, they are chosen for the different levels of easy to difficult. Please feel free to post your pictures!
If there are 5 Sundays (I post on Saturday), then the fifth block is a BONUS BLOCK and will be the more difficult block for the month. All blocks can be found at Quilterscache. If you want to start from the beginning in January, please do. No rules just a challenge. These are yours to keep.
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy.
I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital.
Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal.
Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up.
I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested.
Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
