DWM - A Little Progress Here & There

I've finally worked on another block for Vintage Valentines... 

This is block #7 - don't you just love that scalloped heart?!? And all these sweet little details....

My husband thinks this quilt is old-fashioned, but then he doesn't like anything "flowery or frilly." What is it about men and flowers? Good grief!!! I told him the quilt is ROMANTIC!!! That every woman in the world would love to own this quilt! He just rolled his eyes at me and went back downstairs =^..^=

I also started working on my NewFO Challenge project for July. About time, right? LOL!!! Here are the fabrics I am using. 

It's not often I work with pastels, but every now and again I enjoy digging into those, sweet soft colors :*)  And that dark purple is really going to pop nicely with them!  I'll post more about this project tomorrow, so stay tuned!

I finished up my little Blue Pineapples for the Scrappy Rainbow Challenge.  I'm going to miss the Blues *sigh*  .... but I'm already looking forward to seeing what the next color is going to be!  Can you tell it doesn't take much to make me happy? :*)

The final piece on my design wall is one that I can't share yet because it is my block for the Dots on Dots Blog Hop coming up in September!   Madame Samm and Quilt Taffy are working hard on putting this fun event together for us.  You can learn more about it by clicking HERE or on the cute little button on my sidebar.

This is going to be a really FUN blog hop!  After all, who doesn't like Dots???  Is there a quilter out there who doesn't get a little "dotty" every now and again?

I'm thinking another giveaway might be a good idea, so be sure to check back and find out the date for my post and what I might have to share with all my bloggy friends! =^..^=

So what's on your design wall this week? Share it with us at Patchwork Times!

Hugs & Blessings,


  1. <3 the scrappy pineapples! I have been on the hunt for a small pineapple foundation, and haven't had any luck. If you don't mind sharing, where did you find your pattern?

  6. I want to applique~ Yours is BEAUTIFUL!!! ♥♥♥

  7. Your Vintage Valentine block is adorable. And of course I love your scrappy blue pineapples. They look smaller than mine and you are not batting an eyelash or complaining like me! ha. I think I'll wait to see how you quilt yours before finishing mine.

  9. I love your heart block and it definitely looks romantic!! Can't wait to see what your new project is and of course I love your blue pineapple blocks!

  10. Another great heart blocks. this quilt will be extra special.

  11. The applique is very romantic and I don't know what it is about men and flowers. I just made a quilt that was everything I like and guess what? He sleeps under it and has had no complaints. :)

  12. Teresa,

    Seeing your Valentine's blocks always makes me want to forget my magazine work and everything else and just work on my "me" quilts! Very nice job!

  13. I just LOVE the fabrics you chose for the NEWFO challenge. Can't wait to see what you will make with them.

  14. Your Vintage Valentine quilt is going to look amazing! I'm going to start mine this weekend and I can't wait. Can't wait to see your next block!

  15. Oh! Your Valentine block is such a lovely, lovely piece of work. :) It must have been a bit of a challenge stitching down the scallops on the heart.It looks terrific!

  16. Another gorgeous block! Thanks for linking to Applique Thursday and sharing your eye candy.
