Here's my favorite block this week!  Love this little house...  It's block 12 of the We Can Do It Skill Builder Sampler from  LOVE the skills I am building in this QA!

I also made the bonus block #2 using the waverunner design.

Here's where I am in the Duo Quiltalong.    I'm making a Christmas table topper.  There's still plenty of time to join at and/or  I love my sewing skills on this block.  Everything is nice and even and square!  This fabric is from my garage sale stash finds.  I'm excited to learn how people hand quilt -- just a little though!  That's why I made a table topper.

Another set of instructions came out yesterday for the Victoriana Design Fabric Party QA.  Here's what mine looks like so far:.  (It's folded in half for the photo).

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


My name is..........

Kathy's Quilting Blog - why? Dawn from As Sweet as Cinnamon is asking just that question. She is offering a giveaway prize if you blog about your name and link up to her blog.

Not so original...  My first name is Kathy and this is my blog where I show my creative side.  I seriously started quilting in January, 2011, and wanted to document it.  New2Quilting was available in Blogger, so I took that.  My blog's name is not an exciting name as Distant Pickles or Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle, or Tilda's Twisted Life.  Just plain Jane and to the point.  Thanks for asking...
To win a fat quarter bundle, check out the great giveaway at Lily Quilts



  1. The house block is just stunning. I feel wrapped in a story just looking at it.

  2. Yeah, well, if you had some weird blog name like Tilda's Twisted Life people would always look at you weird when they asked what your blog is called! Especially when they're expecting something quilty sounding and it's not! But that's okay-it's my blog and I like it!
    Love your house. Definitely makes me want to redo mine. Well, not redo it but just do another one!

  3. Hey, that house block turned out fantastic!

  4. That is one of the best houses I've seen. I love it!
