May 2015 BOM

Here is another one of my original designs.

You will see the quilt block and then under that is the layout of all the individual blocks.
Pay attention to where the colors are and how the blocks are turned. 

To make this quilt block you will need a 2 1/2" template

You will also need to learn to make my Star Point Blocks

there are 4 diamonds(background color) in the center of the star points. You could put a color in there if you chose. sometimes I do and sometimes I leave it the background color. 

I prefer to use the squares on the outside rows because I get a better more accurate quilt block. but if you would prefer to use a strip in place of those 4 squares you are more than welcome to do so. It's your quilt block do it how you are most comfortable. 

And here is a quilt suggestion. This was created on my EQ5 software

Branson Mo Retreat

Last year for the first time I went to a real Quilt Retreat! My husband went along and he had a good time too. So this year we are going to be going back for more fun and good friends!!

I love being able to meet people I have been online friends with for several years. It is so much fun to get to know people in person.

I will post pictures when we get back. There was a lot of laughter and alot of great times spent showing our quilts and learning new techniques.

We will be leaving April 29th and coming back on May 4th. So hope to have some great pics to share with you all!

Wishing you all Sunshine and Laughter! Rhonda

Here is a key fob I made for myself.  It is 3 3/4" x 4 1/2"

I may make this into a tutorial.
I wanted something to hold my credit cards and money and be attached to my keys. I am always losing my keys and my billfold LOL  I used to lose my purse alot so I went to only carrying a billfold. Well I tend to lay it down and forget where I put it.

So this way I have everything in one place and it is easier to find than either one on their own.  I intended to  make it big enough for my cell phone but wouldn't you know I got it just a bit too small for the phone to fit. Maybe the next one will be big enough to include a cell phone LOL

The front side is an Ohio Star I made with 1" Half Square Triangles. You can use anything you like for the front. If you'd like to use my shortcut methods you can make a quilt block small enough to fit here if you use 1 1/2" blocks or 1 1/4".

I offer these sizes on my website for $2 ea plus $1 shipping
