Blockheads Week #35


Block #35 - Northridge by Lisa Bongean

Another great block by Lisa that's kind of a dressed up square-in-a-square. Very clever (no surprise). Kathy made her traditional version of Northridge in Lisa's navy and cream mini prints. Joy chose a red/tan/navy color scheme for her Layered Patchwork option.

Question of the Week: Do you make quilts to give as Christmas gifts? Have you started yet? 

Nope and Not even. Unless it's a small project, like my new Holly Joy Mini Table Treat that can be made/quilted/appliqued in about 3 hours, I don't make quilts specifically as gifts. Usually, the quilts I give to family are projects that are no longer needed in the store or for trunk shows. When the kids are home for the holidays and see what's new, they definitely let me know which ones they're interested in and know that in a few years, it might be wrapped up just for them. At our house, patience is a virtue.

  3. I try to do my “made” gifts throughout the year but when October arrives time seems to become shorter just like daylight. This would be a great gift requiring only “short” time to do. Thanks.

  14. This year has been so busy I’m giving myself a break from any hand made gifts for Christmas. I don’t think I even have time for a quick project, I wish I did. I may not have time now but, soon enough my son will be grown and on his own. At that time I will be glad I was able to spend and enjoy it all and look back at all I was blessed with.
