Being in a stay of emergency due to snow, means state of sewing, for me...


Snow Day...Sew Day❄️
The snow stopped here so Any Day/Sew Day!❤️


Oh, Pat, I was not going to do any BOM-BOW this year so I could do some other personal quilts. Alas, when you said this was going to be an asymmetrical quilt, I caved. Since doing the solstice quilt, I have come to love off-set and mixed-up quilts. Fits right in with my scrappy obsession. Some might say I have a weak constitution, or you might be a bad influence.😉😉


Excited to hear about asymmetrical layout. This is something I need to be challenged to do.

Jan Barkley

Hi Pat, I'm a little confused on the instructions. At one point it says to make 13 of the 9 patch and 11 of the Shoofly or do I make two of each for a 12" block???

Help please.

Dazed and confused,


I am enjoying the challenge of making the blocks "mine". Started making 6 inch blocks, so had make 3 inch blocks today. Glad to be using up some of my stash in an organized scrappy way.

Andrea Edwards

Hi Pat,
I too am confused; I have same question as Jan. Thanks!



Hi Pat, thank you for the brilliant discount on the Gemini machine...I love the precision and it makes the blocks so easy and quick to sew up! I'm playing catch up only got blocks one and two done but hoping to get caught up over the weekend. Loving this b o w thank you for all the inspiration!


Hi Pat am enjoying this Love to garden sew along. Certainly makes me stretch my thinking! Have yet to fathom out how to upload photos. Thanks for your inspiration, encouragement. Vikky

Jan Barkley

I also, am a Spring Gardner, but I’m always trying new plants or something I’m not familiar with and am not always successful with it. I like making mixed pots, that way one survivor is better than none. LOL. My hubby plants nothing but petunias, which I’m not fond of, but they don’t die and makes him think he’s a master Gardner!


I've been in a quilting funk for quite a few months and quit a lot of social media because I just wasn't getting the mojo, but seeing that this will be asymmetrical, it just might rejuvenate me. I have so many wips to get done that feel like a chore so maybe by starting fresh the mojo will return and I'll finally finish a beautiful bargello that my friend would love to have. *ahem* and a few others...

Pat Sloan

join in!

Pat Sloan

haha... one survivor is great!

Pat Sloan

I'm happy you joined me!


The dark blue is not in my fat quarters that I purchased. Is this fabric from your stash.


Thanks Pat. I cant fit my entire block into frame. Hard to place a rectangle inside a square. Lol

pat sloan

there is no dark blue Jodi. shoo fly is made with the purple floral. depends where you cut the block what part of the floral you get. I'm ONLY using the fabric on the supply list
