Hugs and Kisses Block 4

Before I post pictures of Block 4 of Hugs and Kisses, I want to show you something really special.  Joyce Dickens-Loffree from Naples, Florida sent me these photos of her quilt, which won a ribbon at her guild’s show.  Do you recognize it?  The pattern is Peggy’s Puzzle, a free pattern available on my website.  I am so honoured that Joyce chose to make this quilt.  Congratulations on a spectacular finish.  And the label is a wonderful addition.

Block 4 of Hugs and Kisses is a nice, simple block.  I am thoroughly enjoying making this quilt for a second time.


As I mentioned, I am making this quilt again, but in browns and pinks.  For some reason, I have a rather substantial amount of both brown and pink in my stash.  So I thought this would be a good time to use some of these fabrics up.  Even the stems are brown and not green:)  I’m not marking the background at all, just using my light box to place all the pieces.


I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo below, but the brown fabric I used for the large circles has subtle dark brown lines on it.  Notice the lines are all running the same way:)



So far, so good…..


The hardest part was deciding where each leaf should go.


Easy peasy, nice and easy!


I am absolutely obsessed with the I Spy quilts I am working on for my 2 granddaughters.  Every morning I get up early and hand-piece a block or two.  What a great way to start the day.  The pattern is called Smitten by Jen Kingwell.  So much fun!


I’m so excited to announce I will be teaching again at The Academy of Applique in Williamsburg in 2019.  I can’t wait!!


Til next time…
