Be My Neighbor – A “Side” Project

I decided to participate in a RBR activity at QA this year.

QA is Quilters Anonymous, which is a West Valley Chapter of the Arizona’s Quilters Guild, and the chapter I’m a member of.

Our RBR activity shares the same premise as a Round Robin, which is a small group activity where each person in the group contributes a round/row of a quilt for each other person in the group, and in the end, each member ends up w/a finished quilt top.

Our groups consist of 5 members. We each picked the “Row” pattern of our choice and made the first row. We then handed off our pattern, along w/fabric and special instruction to the next person on the list for them to make the next row. Each month we hand off to the next person on the list, and so on and so forth until everyone has done a row for each member, and we all have a completed quilt top.

I chose the Be My Neighbor pattern by Moda.

I’m primarily using Andover, Art Gallery, and Cotton & Steel fabrics.

Here are the blocks I made.

And here they are all sewn together to make my first row.

And here’s my first row w/my dog Moe in the pic.

This is not a complete row as I had to count my trees as separate blocks in order that everyone in my group would have 4 blocks to make. The last person will make the missing blocks from each row and then they’ll all be sewn together.

What a bright and cheerful neighborhood it will be!

A Thread for Life

If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.” Don’t plot harm against your neighbor, for those who live nearby trust you. – Prov‬ ‭3:28-29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

A “Wild Hair”

I promised myself I wouldn’t start another project, besides the QA Row by Row Round-Robin we’re starting in November, until I finish four other UFOs in my closet.


I just had to test out my new AccuCut GrandMARK2, which is identical to the accuquilt Studio2

 on a quick little project…

and so, this 12″ sq.  Dutchman’s Puzzle was born.

And then I got a “wild hair”,  and decided to practice FMQ.

Intending to do mostly Pebbling, this is what I accomplished.

It’s more wobble and cobble, but it is fabulous to me!

Thanks for stopping by.

A Thread for Life

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous be shaken. – Psalm 55:22


I got this step stool several years ago from friends who were moving out of state. I took it not only because it’s my favorite color but w/the intention of refinishing it.

When I found this lovely canvas print at Goodwill around the same time, I knew it was meant to be.

I just didn’t think it would take me 3 years!

But I can now tick this off my “To Do” list!
