Happy thanksgiving!! I'm beyond stuffed and should be ready to hit the online Black Friday deals in my stretchy pants tomorrow. J came just in time for dinner and experienced the #kellyclan in all its awesomeness finally. B played non stop with my cousins two oldest boys and passed out cold soon after dinner. I got plenty of TG TV time working on the binding of the #bluerkblocks quilt and think I'm about half done ๐Ÿ˜ It's been a great day! #thanksgiving #stuffed #needstretchypants #gonnagainbackalltheweightilost

I realized, after my last #bluerkblocks post, that my block was not correct and although I had squared it to 12.5โ€ had I left it alone the points would be cut off when it was joined with other blocks.  I reached out to Jessica, who helped me understand what step I missed.  I had failed to square the โ€œkissโ€ to 9โ€. Simple enough to do, with each section taking up 3โ€. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ #ifatfirstyoudontsucceedtrytryagain Thanks, @craftycop!  One day Iโ€™ll be good at this quilting thing.

I'm so blessed to have made quilting my career. Sharing that skill through quilts when folks are down is the best way for me to express my gratitude for being able to stitch everyday. 
Since I  have workmen in the house today, I'm sticking close to home and working on charity quilt projects. For 11 years, I've worked with a gang of 9 friends making quilts to share! 
Today I'm binding a large twin size quilt to give a fella who is working hard to build a better life. We also re-purpose cast offs. I un-backed a charming pieced checkerboard tablecloth from my mom's things and will make a new backing so we can quilt it for a little girl. And later today, I'm going to drop off two #quiltsforvegas tops the group made to @rubybluequilts who is donating her quilting skills.

In the past year, there have been some awesome opportunities to give a hand via Instagram to bless strangers - quilters are making blocks, donating supplies, and finishing quilts. #Quiltsforpulse #bluerkblocks and #quiltsforvegas are 3 recent ones we've supported.  And I'm sure there are more!

How do you share the bounty of your skills?

I finished working on my #bluerkblocks for @craftycop this morning.  After seeing her love shared to the families of fallen ๐Ÿ‘ฎ police officers last week, I decided to help by making a few blocks.  If you havenโ€™t heard what Jessica @craftycop is doing, search #bluerkblocks to read more, sad there is even a need.  These blocks went together super fast if your interested in helping, send Jessica a pm for details. Lighting is my new Slimline LED from @daylightcompany. I ๐Ÿ’— it so much I plan to order a second one within the next week!  #bluerkblocks #slimlineledlight

Nothing like my first longarmer saying she's booked thru January for custom quilts to get my butt in gear on the wall hanging I want to make for my guild quilt show in June! I made a #baliweddingstar as a gift for my SIL when she got married and I have always wanted to make a small 2x2 wall hanging for myself. The 7x7 I made was a year of my life and a labor of love (plus I was brewing B at the time too!) I won't be able to start on it till after the #bluerkblocks quilt is completed and mailed and 3 Christmas stockings are made but the papers are cut and organized into the bags I used before. I'll find the extra fabric as I clean up my studio this weekend in preparation for my MIL coming for thanksgiving! But I've already got a head start as I made 12 extra M units when I made the original ๐Ÿ˜†and that's exactly what I need! #quiltworx #foundationpaperpiecing #paperpiecing #thatgodihavetemplates

I'm missing #saturdaynightcraftalong to see Murder on the Orient Express! I have been sewing this week on my Dear Jane and blue raspberry kiss blocks for #bluerkblocks
Finished the binding on this #bluerkblocks quilt today!  Canโ€™t wait to get it packed up and sent on its way to #craftycop!  It has been a truly humbling experience being a part of this wonderful project with so many fantastic quilters who have donated their time and talents!  I canโ€™t help but think how awful it is that this project is needed, but heartwarming to see all those who have come together to bring comfort to a grieving family. #fallenofficers #craftycop #quilts #somuchcomfort #bluerkblocks๐Ÿ’™

Like patchwork fabric that looks mended and loved sometimes souls and hearts need mending and love.  With each #bluerkblocks stitched and each blue quilt made and bound, hearts too will find some help mending and feeling loved!  The blue fabric came from @craftycop herself through a donation from another person.  We all come together to help mend!

Work today was exceptionally not great for a few different reasons.

I was very busy at my retreat in Maine!  These #bluerkblocks are headed your way @craftycop!! Some of you may not know it, but my husband served nearly 20 years of his life as a police officer and detective. I am so proud of his service and happy to be part of such a wonderful cause!  Police officers need our respect and support every day. There are many fine men and woman who have been called to this profession. They work tirelessly to protect and serve all of us. They work rotating shifts, holidays, double shifts and in bad weather.  Their families make sacrifices every day and worry if their loved one will make it home safely at the end of their shift. As we approach the holidays, remember your local police department and the officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

After a whirlwind couple of weeks of last minute traveling, I arrived home last night to my long over due to-do list.

I sent these quilt blocks to @chelseaquilts21 who is graciously collecting blocks to complete two #bluerkblocks quilts, which will be gifted to the family of a fallen officer. It is all part of a quilting community collaboration started by @craftycop and I hope it provides comfort. #monthofgiving

It's finally feeling like fall here. I'm getting so excited to see family for Thanksgiving! Last month I completed all 3 projects I wanted to tackle...Gravity quilt top, October's #bandcblockexchange  block and B's Halloween costume! ๐Ÿ˜ November is going to mostly be about giving. First up will be the #bluerkblocks kit (hoping to get the top done, to the quilter and back before TG so I can bind it while visiting family) and a comfort quilt for my quilt guild. If I'm really on the ball, I'm going to start tackling Christmas stockings for our family. B is right at the age where Christmas is finally going to be fun! #monthlymarker #november2017 #finallyfall #tacklingmytodolist

This is my #favoritequiltblock for #missingmarket. I love putting together the color combinations for this special charity #bluerkblocks! I have more color combinations cut out than I have sewn but whenever I finish one it brings a smile to my face and maybe even a little tear to my eye when I think of what these are for. Not to mention that these #raspberrykissblock are easy to make. Tutorial at @heritage.threads. Thank you to 
@craftycop for coming up with this awesome project!

Three years ago I presented a quilt to Cpl. Cathy Williams as she retired from the GPD, due to illness. We lost her to cancer in March 2017. I am so thankful that we were able to show appreciation for her when she left service. Iโ€™m posting today to encourage all of you to love and appreciate your local law enforcement in some way this holiday season. And one easy way is to join us making #bluerkblocks to assemble quilts for the families of fallen officers. Also, pray. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #greenvillenc #quiltsofcompassion #islandtimequilting

No, Thank You Jessica! For organizing such a wonderful movement. I am going to piece the top and @segolilyjenn is going to quilt it. And @craftycop is going to hopefully store it away for a long, long time. If you haven't already, please check out #bluerkblocks to see what goodness, no greatness, is still in this world.

Finally finished up some #bluerkblocks to send off to @craftycop today. Thank you Jessica for all you do. I hope these blocks will bring comfort to a grieving family. Swipe to see a few of my favorite blocks. Of course I had to make a few with @figtreeandco fabric. Now if can only remember where I found that cute bird fabric. #bluerkblocks
