Hand sewing the binding on my holiday quilt with the help of Darth Vader. If you haven’t tried the thread gloss by @robotmomsews you are missing out! My aurifil thread is just gliding through my fabric and I haven’t gotten a single unexpected knot. Love, love it!! 😍#lovemyrobotmomsewsthreadgloss
Getting ready to pack up 10 more #bluerkblocks (for a total of 80), binding fabric and backing for @jessicaquilter and #getyourquiltywishesgranted3 I choose the navy with white hearts for the backing to represent the love that goes into each quilt.

I made a trip to the Post Office this morning to mail off #bluerkblocks bundles. I didn't have 13 flat rate envelopes at home so I packaged them there. I will send tracking numbers later when I have the time. @kathy.graves @garenbear @jodioehlerking @ellie84065 @saraquilts @smvmommy @bwquilts @pdottreats @aasktt @patchworkandpoodles @princess_ina_pouch @marniekanders @handmadelunacy @craftycop
UPDATE: I have just promised the last bundle and even offered to make one more. Thank you to everyone who agreed to to make #bluerkblocks . Have you just found out about the amazing project to make #bluerkblocks that will be made into quilts for families of fallen police officers? Are you a member of the gentle nudge (anti-but) group? Have you sent @craftycop a message saying that you would like to make blocks but don't have the material? I have put together 11 bundles to help you out. In order for me to send you one, you MUST promise to send @craftycop at least five #bluerkblocks You can keep the rest of the fabric for yourself. If you have already received a bundle from @craftycop or myself please let someone else have a chance. The pattern is from @heritage.threads and there is a link in her bio. You must DM @craftycop for mailing information. Her account is private so please request to follow her if you haven't already done so. Thanks for participating in this amazing project.

Here is the quilt top that I have been working on in between making blue raspberry kiss blocks and binding for Quilts for Harvey. I fell in love with Winter Grandeur 5 by @robertkaufman. The pattern is Holiday Glitter by Pine Tree Country Quilts. I did a little rearranging and substitution of some of the fabrics. Thanks for the beautiful fabric. #HolidayGlitter#iamreallyhappyitturnedout
How do you match 42 #bluerkblocks 9" squares to 42 end triangles? Slide to find out. There are 42 different blues and the 3.5" squares are made from 42 different LV fabrics. All pulled from my stash. Can you tell I love blue and LV? 💙
Decisions decisions. The simple rail fence or The Three Dudes way. The more complex block is made from the 2 blocks to the left of it. I forgot to tell you that the fabric is brushed cotton. It feels so great. @modafabrics @meandmysisterdesigns #nationaljellyrollday
