SPLENDID SAMPLER... Falling in love with 6 inch quilt blocks

To me these little blocks have become the sweetest sewing adventure.   Six inches sometimes made of  four  little 3 inch blocks have definitely taken a hold of my heart.  You don't get any where fast making 3 inch blocks for a whole quilt but seriously after I made the Flights of Friendship block I want a whole quilt made with 3 inch blocks!  LOVE  IT !

I am not making all 100 blocks for the sampler.   Eighteen is the goal for now.   Just a sweet taste to make me happy and feel connected to world wide quilters.  It is a goal that will make a snuggle quilt with the  help of some alternate blocks and then I can move on to the next best thing!  Life is fleeting away faster than I desire.

The journey began here HERE  and now I have a little stack of pretties.

10 Snowman String blocks
11 Splendid Sampler blocks 
A little WHOO- HOO moment for me!

I will forever love the churn dash block.

This is my, will take ME a lifetime  3'' BIG QUILT desire. 

Those little friendship stars have my heart.

Block # 13
The  stripes are a thrifted shirts. 
My latest desire is to put something old in every quilt I make. 

Another One that I could make a whole quilt of.

And my latest little Six inch lovey dovey....
The red plaid is a thrifted shirt.

Block #  99

This one too for a Big quilt dream! 

My life is one big sewing dream!
I have lists of quilts I want to make.
Unfortunately life sometimes has other plans that I need to tend to. 

Little by little I sew whenever I can. 

Happy May Blessings to you.

Easter ...The Beauty of it all !

Celebrating the Resurrection of the Savior today!

Sailors  in the midst of a storm awoke here on Easter Morning 
and named the bay Resurrection Bay.

Seward, Alaska. 

Have you found yourself at one time or another in the midst of a life storm?

JESUS ... 
The Son of God 
Is the one I turn to in the storms of life. 

Today we celebrate the one who loved us enough
to die for us. 

I really can't comprehend such Love. 

The grave could not hold him...
He has risen from the dead.
Just as he said he would.

Today I finished this ...... 

HE CAME.... for me

HE Died .... for me 

I receive his forgiveness. 

 He LIVES  .... for me.
As a child of God
I have access to the throne of God 
every day through Jesus Christ.

Someday he will come for me and take me home.


It has been a beautiful day. 

NEW life. 

Thank you Leanne for the Easter basket
 of goodies I received in the mail. 

Hope it has been a beautiful day for you.

Happy Easter!
