Dearest Boy and More

It's that time again to reveal another block in the Dearest Boy saga. Block 3 D. If you read Julie's blog today she posted her problems with this block.  I too was disappointed in the instructions.  Where we were supposed to put 4 hexie flowers for the block...the template was way off.  Four wouldn't fit so I did....



just one hexie flower.  It's just going to have to do.  Be sure to stop by Karen'sCarole's, and Julie's Blogs to see what they have done. 

I am going to take the month of December off.  So I won't be posting photos of Dearest Boy blocks until January 15.  See you then.


A couple of weeks ago I entered a giveaway on Kathy's blog for a chance to win an Olfa product.  This giveaway was sponsored by Jacquelynne Steve's for her Save the Bees BOM.



This is the biggest Rotary Cutter I have ever used.  I love that I can cut more layers of fabric.  I was so excited to win.  Thanks to both Jacquelynne and Kathy.

The weather has been a mix of rain and snow and cold....  Good sewing weather.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stay warm and get some sewing done.  

Hugs, Cathy

I read Karen's first and I must say you both saved the block nicely!! I'll go see what Julie came up with. I know Carol hadn't started hers yet. Good job!

And I read Julie's first. Haven't read Karen's yet. Headed there next.
Your block has a pretty center--nice fussy-cut. Too bad the directions didn't work out, but you do what you can.
And that looks like a lovely prize!

Glad you figured a way around the problems for the block. Yeah for your win! You will LOVE that big cutter. They are great.

Sometimes you have to improvise. A lovely save. You and your family have a wonderful holiday.

It's a very pretty block regardless. It makes me crazy when pattern instructions aren't clear. I just made a quilt where the diagrams were opposite of the written instructions. Of course I followed the pictures--wrong!!
