On the Table Today

So I like to have a project going that scares me silly...no really...a girl has to be challenged, right? (most recent example finished here)

This is the other "thing" I got while at the Grand Rapids show...not the Kim McLean pattern, I've had that...but all the Apliquick goodies I hope will make that pattern possible for me.

Then, my head was turned this morning when I saw Doreen's blogpost here...oooooooo, I really like this pattern!!

Hmmmmm...

Anyone else try the Apliquick method yet?  It sure looked good in the demo  :)

Stars for today...

A view of my pressing board this morning...

Some have asked how these are made, without doing a tutorial as I am not affiliated with BlocLoc and am not sure whether I would be stepping on toes, this pic should give you a pretty good idea!

Five For Wednesday

Bloc Loc DIT Stars for today
 Blocks 10, 11, and 12
 Starting to get somewhere :)

 Blocks 13 and 14
All 14 so far, getting difficult to get them all in the shot - especially with the wind blowing them about!

edited to add: Enough of you have asked that I thought I'd include the specific link on the instruction sheet for putting these together.  The Bloc Loc site is a bit difficult to navigate, use this link and scroll to the bottom purple link for the instructions.

 I think all the corn surrounding us is influencing my color choices...
 My friend Marie is going to come make stars with me tomorrow, I am bribing her with cookies :)

Bloc Loc Diamond in a Triangle Tool Oh How I Love You!


Ok, back to stars...
 Here is star number 6
 The lineup so far minus the newest one.
And, really...who didn't see this coming??  If I was a quilt block, this would be ME.  Two of my most favorite fabrics EVER...and this block totally does not conform to the rules...ummm...the rules I set, btw...
This is possibly my favorite thing I have ever made, just sayin'

 Still loving my DIT Bloc Loc Tool...

Have a great day!

So how about a visitor to the yard, first monarch I've seen this year.

 One of our Golden Delicious apples...not quite ripe...
 Some of our grapes, also not ripe...
 Roaring fire in the backyard from a couple nights ago.  the nights are already chilly enough for this and we are not out of August???!!
 Red pie apples, not ready yet...
 Sunflower late in the day...
 One of my very few pears...
 A lineup in front of our shorty corn...

Welcome to our place  :)
