*********************************************************************
HAPPY almost NEW YEAR!! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are ready to Ring in the New Year!!! One last Party and then jump on too the Lotto Train and let's get rolling!!!!

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO JOIN??
*IT IS FUN!!
*Never any pressure. The choice is always yours as to how many blocks you have time to make and we know life gets in the way sometimes.
*It is a great place to practice and get ready for joining a Swap.
*It is FUN TO WIN and/or see a PAL WIN and be able to WIN.
*If you make a block to keep you could have a Sampler Quilt at the end of the year :) :)

We will start by stitching a Modified Churn Dash. I was looking for something simple and different that you would be able to add a HEART to the center

* Begin with Cutting a 4.5" WoW center square. Add Heart after 12.5" block is sewn to center it in the Square. See picture.
* Cut 2.5" by Width of Fabric both White on White and Colored Strips.
Stitch together with acturate 1/4" seam.
* Cut into 2.5 x 4.5" sections. Do Not Undercut. Sew sections together to make 4-Patches for the corners of the 12.5" block. See picture
* Cut 4.5" x 4.5" sections of the sewn White on White and colored strips to make the center sections. See picture
* The Tip for the block is accurate 1/4" seams and do not undercut.
ENJOY!!!!

THINK VALENTINE Colors of LOVE and FRIENDSHIP
FABRIC: ANY 2 Colors pulled from the colors you are using in your Heart - 2.5" strips
BACKGROUND: Small print White on White - 2.5" strips
TWIST: A HEART will go in the Center Square. You may Applique, PaperPiece, Embroider or if you have a Fabric with a BIG Heart you can use that as well.

BEFORE MAILING - - -

Good morning!!!
Lori - Anne Murray has been one of my favorite vocalists since back in the 70's. I learned the guitar playing her songs. Are you joining us this month?? Sure hope so.

Katy - Get well soon. Plenty of time to work on these if your health allows.

Linda S - The Hearts in the Center can be ANYWAY you would like to make them. PaperPieced, Embroidered or Appliqued or if there is a Fabric that has hearts big enough for the center yes you can use that as well. ENJOY!!!!!

Here are 2 blocks. Possibly will make 2 more later this month. It's still early. ;)







The spots that look black, aren't. They are a dark burgundy color.

Teresa:

I have to bow out for January. I will be spending 2 weeks in San Diego with family, which leaves me no time to sew. Maybe next month. Enjoy!

Katy - love the picture you sent me. I will post it when I am on the computer. Happy to hear you are feeling better. Prayers it continues completely. Do you think Shirley will join us this month?

Valerie - What is DG?? I know you have your hands full of getting ready for your Dad. I know that feeling of cleaning and packing. You think you have made progress until you turn around and wonder. Hope it continues smoothly for you and the family. I hope they are helping.

Love seeing the pictures!!!

Still haven't figured out how to post pictures the new way, but might get to that today. I have 5 blocks ready to mail and pieces to make a few more... maybe I'll whip up a couple more today!

Will probably mail tomorrow, as I will definitely have to go to town for groceries soon!
