Noah and Matilda BOM

Some days I feel like I need to hurry up and hurry up.  I just finished the last stitches on the first 4 blocks of Noah and Matilda and today all the February blocks for all the quilts I am making came out and I am already behind again.
Noah and Matilda is the new BOM quilt from Dawn at Collector with a Needle.  If I remember correctly this is the third quilt I have made from one of Dawn's patterns.  She alway does a wonderful job drafting the patterns.  This one she is sending as a BOM.  Four blocks each month for a small fee.   The blocks finish at 8 inches and are set on point.

I haven’t been doing much stitching the past few days as I have my 7 year old Granddaughter staying with me and that’s a different kind of fun.
Happy Stitching,


  1. That is a fabulous kind of fun, a GD is a very special thing.
    I love how your blocks are finishing up. Very, very pretty!!
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Dawns patterns are beautiful. If I did applique they would certainly be on my bucket list.
    Your blocks look lovely, Nancy!
    Enjoy some good granddaughter time! : )

  3. Beautiful stitching Nancy - love the blocks! I especially love the last flower block with its spinning petals - such a nice combination of fabrics there.

  4. Beautiful blocks, Nancy. Keep having fun!

  5. Wow - those blocks are great. Wish I had time for all the wonderful BOMs out there. Have fun with your DGD.

  6. Wow, Nancy!I love your blocks! Great fabrics, especially for the petals i the flower.

    Have lots of fun with your granddaughter!

  7. I'm definitely admiring your blocks, Nancy. I've never undertaken such a project before. I've chosen my red and green and chrome fabrics with no problem, but I need advice for the background.
    What is your background fabric? I have a lot of fabric in my stash, but I don't think I have 8-1/2 yards of anything appropriate. We have no local quilt shop--but I'd be willing to travel a bit to get some. Or I can order something online.
    I'd appreciate your advice and/or suggestions. I don't want to put a lot of time into stitching if I use a stupid choice for background.
    BTW, I'm not an experienced hand appliquer. I'll probably be machine appliquing this quilt, or I'll never get it done.

  8. El tiempo que pase fuera y no he podido visitar el blog
    encuentro que hay unos trabajos preciosos, tendré que ir poniéndome al día
