Q, R, S, T.

I haven't posted the alphabet blocks for a while so I thought I would post 4 together.  These have been really fun to do and it keeps me thinking about what Lyn is going to come up with for each letter.

Q is for Quintessential Quilt
R is for Radical Revolutionary Rotary Cutter
S is for Snappy Scissors
T is for Thimble and Thread
I have been trying to co-ordinate the letter and what it stands for
when I have been doing these blocks. 
The Letter comes one week and it's mate
the next week.

October Blocks of the Month

I have been alone since last Thursday October the 4th (YKW and number one son have gone moose hunting) so I have spent my time doing my October BOM's since I also want to get back to finishing up my Christmas gifts.  So after a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at Hawkeye Lake at the camp of a friend and her family, I was able to finish the last of them.

Craftsy BOM this month was paper piecing and I have been dreading making this block.  Amy Gibson did a wonderful job on her video showing a different way of paper piecing and so much easier than the method that I was taught.  I just love her method.  It went together so fast I will certainly use this method again.

I still have to finish My Morning Glory Design Block and my Irish Quilt blocks.  The blocks for the Irish Quilt are so slow in coming that I am going to use some of my own ideas to finish it up.
