Longmeadow Block 2



Hi everyone,

Block 2 is up and ready to download.

I learned the meaning of despair last week when I grabbed a permanent marker instead of my Frixion pen to draw placement lines on the background.  It all worked out in the end, fortunately, but the frustrated groan brought my husband to me from the other side of the house.  He’s a good guy who sympathized with me even though he didn’t quite understand it. I am much more careful now about what I pick up to draw with.

I hope you all have a blessed week ahead!

    1. Thank you for the link! I found the comments as interesting as the article itself. I’m going to try the ultra clean crayola washable markers and see if they are more washable than the Frixion pens I chose. I don’t quilt for competition, but would be embarrassed just the same if all the lines came back and told the truth about how inaccurate my sewing is. lol Again, thanks for the link!


  1. I’m so glad it all worked out, but how frustrating that would be, I can only imagine! This is a block I can imagine making all by itself and hanging at the top of the stairs, or on the wall next to the bathroom mirror, or anywhere there’s a small space that needs beautifying. Thank you!


    1. Thanks, Debbie. I was determined to make it work as I did not want to re-applique all 50 leaves again! lol In the end it came out fine, so crisis was averted for the moment. I am much more careful now about where I place things when I’m quilting so that they don’t get mixed up. Lesson learned.


  2. Christy, thank you for being so generous with your designs. I love them. I use the .05 width Frixion pen – it makes such a very fine line. I try to make sure the lines are all covered by the applique–or nearly so. Then if there is any shadowing, it will be hidden by the quilting.


    1. Hi Pam! I’m not completely turned off of using Frixion pens yet as I really like the convenience of them. But I might reconsider using them on quilts I was gifting.


  3. I’m loving working on this quilt. I’m a little slow – still working on block 1 – all those leaves threw me for a loop, but I’m getting into the flowers now and can’t wait for block 2 to start. Thanks so much for being so generous. I love the center block also.


  4. Hola, llevo un tiempo sin revisar mi correo y aunque se que voy a encontrar todos sus correos, voy a preguntarle lo evidente ¿a comenzado uno nuevo trabajo? ya se que es así pues va por la segunda entrega, por lo que doy por hecho que el central esta a la venta, por favor me puede dar los datos para poderlo comprar, gracias.

    Saludos desde España
