I have two updates for you as we gear up for January and the kick off of Moccasin Block of the Month Club.  If you are interested in participating in the BOM with a kit, Brenda at Pink Castle has the kits available now!  Kits will include monthly mailings with the paper pattern of the month and the RJR Cotton Supreme Solid fabric needed to make that month's blocks.  Check it out!

I also wanted to let you know that one of the participants in Moccasin BOM for next year (thanks, Marietta) asked if I could provide a coloring sheet so you could play around with colors to audition fabrics for the BOM.  Here it is!  Great idea....  I hope this helps.

Quick Teacher Gift - Lanyard Tutorial

It's that time of year again...... Teacher gifts!  Here are the lanyards I whipped up yesterday using this tutorial I wrote last year for an easy 10-minute project.  Seriously.... I was able to sew them and post them here in less time than it would have taken me to run out for a store bought gift.

Last year, apparently the teachers on staff all wanted one - but I don't make and sell these on etsy.  They're only teacher gifts - I hope it's a hot topic again this year.  Then all the teachers will want to have one of the 3 Chany boys.  Because they're sweet darlings and good students of course. ;) Pin It

CMQG Bee Block

Dec 5, 2014

December is my month in our guild bee - CMQBee.  I've decided to choose a Granny Square Block for my month.  I think this block will be simple and fun (especially since this hits right at the holiday season).  I hope you ladies enjoy it!


Notes:
-white solid background please
-choose 2 colors (1 inside circle, 1 outside circle); prints that read as one color or solids
-center is variant of the inside circle color
-cut all squares 3 1/2" unfinished (the tutorial says to cut 2 1/2" squares - I'd like my blocks to be bigger)
-DO NOT square up!!!!  Leave the blocks just as I've shown in these pictures.  I will square them all up at the end.

Can't wait to see you girls' blocks!
