Blocks of the Month and a Giveaway

Sometimes I'm just too tired when I get home from work to do anything in my sewing room that requires too much concentration, and the February Riley Blake BOM definitely required concentration! I had to do a little repair after messing up TWICE! It still isn't ideal (I'm not expecting perfect), but it's better than it was. I'm pretty new to this paper piecing stuff. Hopefully, it'll blend right in with the other blocks once they're all put together. 
My March block was MUCH easier! And the three of them look pretty nice together. Can't wait for April's block! 

I spent most of today trying to figure out a quilt to make for the Relay For Life raffle. I got some fabric cut out but I'm just not feelin' it. Maybe another day.

Tonight I started cutting out all of the pieces for my April block for the Sugar Block Club, and realized as I was posting this pic that I'm missing 4 pieces :/
Oh! Did my post title mention something about a giveaway? You may remember a recent giveaway during the Quilting Gallery's blog hop that was sponsored by Dana at Winter Creek Cloth. If you signed up for her newsletter at that time, then you probably already know about her April giveaway. If not, then all you need to do is email her at with "NEWSLETTER QUILTS" in the subject line, no later than April 15th, and she'll go ahead and enter your name in this month's giveaway, which is a Comma charm pack by Zen Chic for Moda! Of course, sign up for her newsletter to receive future announcements of her sales, new arrivals, and giveaways! She has a pretty awesome online shop and you should definitely check it out if you haven't done so already!

Oh, and Kelli who blogs over at Seriously..I think it needs stitches is also having a sponsored giveaway by Winter Creek Cloth! Check it out here!


  1. I heart Comma, and recently got some with a gift cert that I had won from the DaGMT event in Feb. Dana is so generous!

    Your block looks great and I'm sure it will blend right in, the three of them look beautiful together! Check you out, all color coordinated with your paper piecing templates. :)

  2. I LOVE the green in your churn dash! I have still only completed January, but will catch up...soon! I haven't had a close look at the Feb pattern. Is it a paper pieced heart that is then appliqued on to the background?


Thanks for stopping by Lisa Lisa and the Quilt Jam! I love to receive comments, and read each and every one of them!
