Thursday Threads 6/27

by Julie Hirt


It’s really 6-27, but for some reason we’ve always said 6-2-7.   Paul and I had our first date on 6/27/07 and were married on 6/27/11.


So that’s where the name for my blog came from. I love my Paul!

Since our deck is finally complete I was able to get in a little sewing.  This block is for one my Scrappy Trip Bee mates:


She requested pinks and brights, I hope she likes it!  I still have a couple more to work on – I forgot how much I enjoy making this block.  It’s fun to see it all come together.

Here is my version of the Garfunkel block for Block Rock’n.  I’ve already posted it, but here you go:


The Garfunkel and the Caldonia are definitely my favorites so far.  I’ll  be making more of this one for sure.

I’m a little behind on my Lucky Stars blocks.  Oopsy.  Between Block Rock’n and Lucky Stars I have several blocks that I may combine into a quilt.  I really like how the brights pop with the dark fabrics. Maybe some black sashing?
