Happy Valentine's Day.....

to everyone. I have had another busy week..... I received a lovely gift about a week ago from my secret sister on my machine quilting list - featherlite clamps for my quilting machine. I have been wanting to try these for some time... and I am very pleased with them. They hold the sides of the backing very well and the machine does not bump into them when I get to quilting the side borders.... Thanks Secret Sis!

I am doing a block of the month thru my guild and it uses the Kaleidoscope ruler from Marti Michell. I don't usually buy specific rulers, but I thought I would try this block of the month - and we had to buy the ruler. I am quite pleased with it. I made my BOM (smaller block) and then I made a block for a swap - it was quite easy to change to another size. I think I will be able to use this ruler for quite a while.

Thought for the Day
We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.

Debbie your blocks are great! I too have that ruler and I want to make some blocks with it but as usual I am swamped.
