Midweek Makers #436

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


I made up another scrap storage block, this time one of the under-bed sizes, as I needed to have another to balance out the tall boxes. Though it made no dent in the pink scraps, at least the frog gives me another block with an I Spy element.


Sorry the picture is so small, but along with link issues, it seems blogger is also not enlarging pictures. Ughh.

Anyway, here's some pretties that caught my eye last week:

from Patchouli Moon Studio, this lovely heart,


from Eagles Wings Quilts, the flying geese and woodland animals quilt is a finish,


and from Quilting Gail, an adorable tree skirt.

Midweek Makers #435

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


I finally got a pink storage bin block done for RSC2024, though I must confess that the bin size does not represent the amount of pink/black scraps I have. I really have just a handful of pink with black but I'm eager to use them up!!



Features this week are from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting, with this pretty runner in a southwest vibe,


an adorable pink cowboy hat block from Donnaleeq,


and keeping up with the southwest theme in the way of color, these blocks from Julie's Quilts and Costumes.


If you're wondering why the links to the features aren't showing up, it's because when I try to enter them in the same manner as I have for years, the link comes up saying 'null'. Any other blogger having this issue???

Midweek Makers #434

Welcome to Midweek Makers!

Nothing to share this week as I've been spending most of my time out in the yard, weeding and trimming. All this rain has made everything just burst!

I've been happily watching my fruit trees bloom and create little fruits. Though I don't have a peach tree, I'm wondering if Sew Preeti Quilts does. She shared three peach themed quilts last week, all of them quite lovely.

Peach on Earth,


Feeling Peachy,


Feeling Peachy - Blush

Adobe House May Quilt Block Mania

Time to go on a trip to the desert! Let's spend the days trekking through sand and cactus, then relaxing at night in a quaint Adobe House.


Yes, 'desert' is the Quilt Block Mania theme this month. And when I think of 'desert', what comes to mind is either the Sahara or, for some crazy reason, the state of New Mexico.

Given that the Sahara is rather sparse for quilt block ideas, the group leaned toward desert vegetation of the US Southwest. And WOW! What a great variety of desert blocks!


For the month of May, visit each designer to download their free desert block. And don't forget to say thank you for their creativity!

All of those blocks make a beautiful view for my Adobe House occupants. Below is the inspiration for my house.


The Adobe House block combines easy piecing with a bit of applique, simple enough for the beginner quilter. It's free until June 3, 2024. Just click on the download button below for the PDF pattern file.

Midweek Makers #433

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


Since I don't have enough yellow scraps for another RSC storage box, I made up a second holiday themed one. This time it's Christmas scraps, in another tall box, since those scraps are limited too. I'm trying to keep my scrap and yardage proportions real!


Amazing shares keep popping up on Midweek Makers. Last week was no different with these pretty finishes:

from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting, beautiful butterflies,


Melva Loves Scraps and her Pieces of My Life,


and finally, from Eagles Wings Quilts, a bright baby quilt.
