April's One Block Wonders Link Up

Well the internet issues remain...frustrating...and I am writing this post with my phone hot spotted to my desktop computer...but hopefully, and every finger and even my toes ;) are crossed....this is the last month we will be down, sigh....
Ok enough about that let's get onto the fun stuff.....

was made with the Urban Scandinavian and Bella lines from PB Textiles 

April was wonderfully sponsored by

 $30.00 Gift Certificate


FQ Bundle

I couldn't be happier with the way this quilt turned out and how lovely the PB Textile fabrics were. Blue isn't the only colour either, the Urban Scandinavian line comes in 6 different colour ways, plus black and white, and the Bella Suede comes in multiple colour ways and tonal prints too!!

 I quilted with the Super Nova E2E digital pattern again. It is fast becoming my favourite go to  choice...

Don't forget Rita's all year deal for us too....
if you need fabric for your next months block....check her out and use the savings code

Remember you only need to have sewn one block from April's pattern to link up.... and you have till next Friday at 8am EST to post your picture!

Double Duty Post.....finally

I have been having more internet issues again and have sadly been absent from a lot of the posts that should be happening....
The happy news is the internet issues should be resolved by the end of the month, never to happen again!! 

I love finding these Double Duty ideas and then sharing them with all of you....
because let's face it,  if I share them here I wouldn't forget them, lol!! 

 What a great idea for pant hangers:

 and think about this as a great mini quilt wall, especially if you can find some antique pant hangers

and how about these clear shoe storage hanging systems, not just for shoes! Being clear it makes it so easy to see everything...

What about you?
What is your favourite double duty item?


What I've Been Up To:

Modern Selvage Quilting
Here's a sneak peak to an upcoming blog tour, May 10-21,  I get to be a part of. On May 19th I'll be posting for my day on the blog tour talking about Riel Nason's new book Modern Selvage Quilting. I'm joining in with 8 other bloggers and Riel to share the book, our thoughts, maybe a project or two and a give away......

Here's the project I'm working on: I've been saving selvages for I had a mess of them to press...2 days worth, lol.

This is what I ended up with after pressing and having looked at the 17 different projects available... this combination just begged to happen! Solid fringed selvages.....I'm in love....
