Jeanne's Month - December


I'm mailing fabrics and instructions today!!!

Below is the insert you will receive in your packet.  I realized I put some links on the instruction sheet that, of course, you won't be able to click on! Duh...

Hi Coast to Coast friends!

Well, I’m finally sending you fabrics for my quilt blocks!  So sorry it’s late and please know that I DO NOT expect you to get these to me in December.  Oh my goodness, no.  If you can get them to me by the end of January that would just be wonderful!

What I’d love:
  • 1 or 2 -- 15 ½ inch block(s)  -- I will add sashing later probably

  • I’d like a little white (I’ve enclosed a little Kona “snow”) in each block, but please not on the outside (I’ll probably be using white for the sashing)

  • If you’d like to add any of your own fabrics, please feel free to, but it’s not necessary. 

Final Note:  I think you have enough fabric to do 2 blocks, if you wish to.  That would be awesome!  If you don’t want to do 2 blocks or don’t have enough fabric, would you mind sending bigger scraps back with your completed block?  I bought this fabric about a year ago and am afraid I won’t be able to find everything to finish out the 24 blocks I need. 

Thank you so much. I cannot wait to get your blocks back and see what you’ve come up with.

December is my month!

Hello Block Party members!  December is my month...I thought it would never get here and, well, now it just about is and I'm not quite ready.

My husband and I are taking a trip out of the country for a week, so I'm gonna be a little late getting the fabric and instructions to you.  I really meant to try and send it during November (where did this month go???!!!) but that didn't happen.

So...I will return on December 7 and it will take me a couple of days to get everything cut and planned.  I will tell you that this is my inspiration:

So, wonky or not...I love all of these!  

Oh, and...especially since you won't be getting the fabric until the 2nd week of December hopefully, I don't expect you to return them in December.  Anytime in December or January will be great!

My month decision

Hey everyone...

After all this year and its problems and how far I (seriously) got behind, I decided it would be unfair to send out block material for me.

I focused all my attention in making sure blocks went out. I realize some of you may be done already, but I thought you might like the blocks to make a pillowcase or something.

Thank you all for your patience. I did enjoy these blocks. It is always fun to learn something new and to see other's choice in fabrics.


PS...they have all gone out now so please let me know if you don't receive them.

Another block for Bibi

I finished up Bibi's block a couple days ago. Sunday morning, coffee with cream, and quilting - what could be better?

Bibi, I didn't square it up for you for a couple reasons: I didn't have a 9.5" ruler and after the week I had last week, I wasn't sure if I should try to square it up. I was worried I'd take too much off one side. Sorry!

September Houses

Hello Coast to Coast Quilters!

September is my month and I'd like to make a neighborhood quilt with a house block from you. I'm inspired by a house quilt made by my guild. I love how a request for houses turned up mansions, cabins, beach houses and light houses. I can't wait to see what you create!

This is my inspiration quilt.

I'd like the houses to be 10.5" high and any width you care to make it. I've included background fabric and an "inspiration" fabric. This is a fabric I like that you may include in your house in any way you wish. A window, a door, a roof, whatever. Either straight or wonky houses are gratefully accepted. Please use fabric from your stash for the rest of the house. If this is too vague or you need more fabric, just let me know. No need to send any scraps back to me. There are lots of house blocks out there, but here is one and another that only need slight modification to make them 10.5" high. Here is a great collection of wonky houses.

These are some house blocks I've made or already been given for the start of my neighborhood. If you're inspired to make a tree block (also 10.5" tall) or add a tree next to your house for the neighborhood, that would be terrific. However, just a house is terrific as well.

Thanks in advance for your contribution, and I look forward to seeing your creativity! I'll send out the fabric packs this week.

Block for Bibi

I finished up my map of the states for Bibi last night - I love all the little prints she chose for her block. I'll mail it out this week. I look forward to seeing them all together.

By the way, September is my month - I'm getting my thoughts together and I'll mail out and let you know my block wishes soon!
