I taught my first free motion quilting workshop on Saturday for the Ottawa Valley Quilt Guild and it was so much fun. What a great group of students to work with! It was exhausting too though, and I think I was in bed by 10 that night and that was after falling asleep on the couch. LOL. Once again, I'm reminded how hard teaching is and how much I admire those who do it every day!

Lots to do and share this week, but for today, I'll share this block with you for Modern Block Monday. Chelsea in my Canadians Quilt Bee asked for this cross block (photo tutorial). Low volume prints for the back and red for the cross. I can't wait to see her pull all the blocks together -- they will look fabulous!

  February Block

Hope you had a great weekend! What are you working on this week?

Oh, and I thought you might get a giggle out of this too:

Happy Monday, all!


  1. I bet you did a great job with your FMQ workshop. This cross block quilt will be lovely. While I'm not a fan of TH coffee (blasphemy I know!) , I do love this take on the double double!

  2. looks great. I have some of the same script fabric, and I just finished a grecian cross quilt.

  3. YAY for double double. A great cross block, too!

  4. :-) oh yeah, you Canadians! The True North strong and free! Our coach has quit the job since we didn't do very well but once we clone Jarda Jagr I'm sure we can beat you any day, he he.

  5. Well, if the US couldn't get the men's hockey medal, at least one of my Colorado Avalanche was playing for Canada :-)

  6. This block is on my list for sure!

  7. Great block! There is something so satisfying about teaching others and watching their creative juices start flowing!
