March BOM

Since last Sept I have been sharing my quilt block designs for a BOM on a group I belong to on Facebook. It is called Life's a Quilt. This is a fantastic active group that has lots of projects to join in on and lots of great quilters to meet and get to know.

Here is one of my BOMs that I posted on March 6th. I designed this one just for the Life's group BOM.

                 This one uses my Triple Strip shortcut method.

                               Times Square quilt block

Here you can see the individual blocks and how they are placed
To make this quilt block just refer to the tutorial for my Triple Strip shortcut blocks and then make them in the colors you see here. Make sure you place the individual blocks in the direction you see them in the layout pic here.

Good Morning everyone!

It's a beautiful foggy wet somewhat warm day in SE Iowa today!
I'll take that over 6 ft of snow and or ice any day! LOL

Hope you are getting some good quilty time today!

Thought I'd share some things with you today.
I began a new group on FB recently called Rhonda's Shortcuts.
I am offering tips and tricks and free patterns on there. I have
added several tutorials to the files that you are welcome to use
any way you like except selling them.

       Here is the tablerunner I posted on there.
   I'd post the PDF here but I don't see a way to do that.
If you aren't on FB and would like to have the PDF just
email me at and I'll be happy to
send it to you.

Wishing you Sunshine and Laughter and Warm Weather!!

Here we are in the new  year! Hope your quilty journey is going smoothly!

I started a new group on Facebook so I could post my tutorials and get people involved. It is called Rhonda's Shortcuts if you'd like to join us. I am posting projects you can do and sharing lots of tips and ideas I hope will help other quilters.

Lots of colds and flu going around in our area. Thankfully we haven't had much snow. so far the ice and snow have been minimal

I have been learning to improve my pattern writing skills and will share those quilt patterns with you soon. I am a member of the Life's a Quilt group on Facebook and I started a BOM last Sept.
I will be making those available here soon also.

So keep warm and keep quilting!! Wishing you Sunshine and Laughter to keep you warm and cozy!!  Rhonda
