SAL #8--Big Dipper is posted

Pardon me for posting the instructions to the blocks so rapidly, but I told you when I am designing, I can be manic.  It is just easier for me to write them as I make them so I don't forget a step.  There is no rush.  The patterns will be available for quite a long time.  My only suggestion would be to print them off.  Who knows what might go haywire with the 'free' blogger site in the future.
I must say that the new format is so, so much easier to use.  Of course, that just means it takes me less time to blog and I have more time to make the little darlings!

Since my latest crazy wool pincushion will be finding a new home, I have been researching the design of the new one.  Kaaren is always my go to gal for that.   The Four Seasons will be the theme.  I like my fall designs and will include pumpkins along a purple fence!  I loved her snowman, but need to find a crisp white wool for that one.  I will design around Easter for spring.  A flag and some watermelon for summer?  I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!


  1. Wonderful block Cheryl. Very clever name " Big Dipper" and you already know how I love the cheddar fabric!!

    I checked out Kaaren's blog I am a follower of hers--- she has great idea's! I loved the video, very cute!

    Your idea for the pin cushion theme sound like a winner---go for it! If you need crisp white wool I am sure I could buy some for you. Just let me know. Hugs, Carolyn :)

  2. Thanks for the kind comment about my swan pin cushion. Thank you for posting your blocks. Guess what I'm doing tomorrow?

  3. I think the block setting looks great. I am salivating (display great relish at the sight or prospect of something). Look forward to the Four Seasons pin cushions. I have been thinking of that concept for 4 small quilts to display on the wall!?!

  4. We share the NaMe and being a Libra I thought it appropriate to follow. I like your blog ToO!

  5. Another wonderful block Cheryl!
    I love how sweet & simple the sewing is for this one. It definately looked a bit more complicated.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Love any comments you wish to share.
