June Block of the Month - Skates

It is time to show my June Block of the Month for the winter-themed quilt designed by Cindy at Quilt Doodle Designs.  This month her block is called "Northern Hockey Skates."  Even though I am from Minnesota, I am not a real big hockey fan, so I "softened" my hockey skates and changed them to white.  


It is fun sewing winter-themed quilt blocks in the middle of summer.  Looking forward to the July block.

Touchdown Quilt

I sent my newest quilt kit available in my online quilt shop to my friend Kristen at Meadowbrook last month.  She has a teenage son who is a BIG sports fan, and I knew he would love this quilt.  She sewed this quilt up in just a few days.  The quilt uses the pattern "Touchdown" by Cluck Cluck Sew.  Kristen reports "the instructions were very clear, and making the football strings was easy and fun."  Kristen quilted it on her home sewing machine.
