Friday Finds.....finally

  I sure haven't shared anything in a while, yet I have pinned up a few things.


   I see so many quilters making house blocks.  This one is a good reference for an assortment of blocks.  It is from Quilt Inspiration and provides a lot of links.  I am sure you will find inspiration there!













Garden Fence Block Tutorial | Freemotion by the River:
Connie at Freemotion by the River recently shared her block for the Garden Fence block.....along with some cute variations.  She has a pdf file for download as well as this handy instruction card to print out.   This is one I am putting on my list of small projects to make......soon I hope.







Fine-Tuning the Stitch & Flip with Bonnie Hunter - C&T Publishing:

Bonnie Hunter recently did a guest post at C and T Publishing on her technique for perfecting the sew and flip triangles.  It is worth the time to read.  Her details are great.









I love this string quilt!  Great contrast and a good mix of color.  This is from facebook by Ruthie Reynoso on Pat Sloan's quilt along.    I hope she doesn't mind my sharing her quilt.  No pattern given, or really needed, just good idea here!









As for me..,.,.,I am off for surgery pre-op tests this morning.  The CT went well...as in, I did not cause the machine to malfunction this time.  I met with the surgeon and surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday the 22nd.  He will clean out the  right artery and improve my brain function.   Once I recover, then we move on to neurosurgeon for back/spine repair.  Or what ever it takes.   The left leg is weaker/less feeling/less control this week.  I know not a good thing, but wheelchair assistance  gets me to PT anyway.   "Tighten the tummy. tuck in the behind, shoulders back, remember to breath, and now walk".......that's my lesson for the week.  
Enjoy the weekend and happy stitching.
