So many times I start a project only to get distracted by another project, a class sample, a customer quilt that needs quilting, but not this week. I made great progress on my UFOs. Such a feeling of accomplishment. As I look at these projects it is just crazy that I didn't just finish some at the time. One just needed a label... done.

I recently co-taught a class with my friend Lisa. We both fell in love with Shabby Fabrics "Blessings of Summer" pattern. It is a great Block of the Month. As we started to review the pattern we noticed that one block had dimension but none of the other blocks. Well that was it, we took each block and tried to see where we could add texture and dimension to the block. It was so much fun! I am going to post tutorials here on what we did. Now remember, we taught this as a block of the month class and it was great to see how creative folks could get. I think the first block everyone did EXACTLY what we did. But then they caught the bug too. It doesn't matter what machine you have, or how many decorative stitches, you can do it! I am going to start with one of the filler blocks, Pinwheels.
