Betsy Sue Ross and NIOSA

Hi y'all!  As you know, I'm packing like crazy to get ready to move THIS FRIDAY!  But...my wonderful sister-in-law, Carly, asked me to come babysit for her over this last weekend so they could go see Garth Brooks in concert.  How could I say no??  So although this weekend involved a lot of this...

And this...

I did manage to get some sewing in too.  I got the basic part of my Americana blocks for this month done.  I forgot the fabric that I need to applique to them, but you can get an idea of what the Betsy Sue Ross block will look like...

I need to add her bonnet, the flag that she's sewing, and a picture on her wall.  All applique.  Hopefully I can squeeze that in tonight (between boxes).  Then I worked on some more blocks for my upcoming Moda Bake Shop project, NIOSA...

Those of you that follow me on Instagram have been seeing a few sneak peeks of this project and I'm happy to say that it is really close to being completed.  At least this one.  I have three more for Moda that I need to get done before December!!  Got to get this move finished!

This project is being made with an upcoming line from Moda called Good Karma...

And that's it for now!  Not sure how much I'll get posted this week but I'll do my best!  Today I'm linking up with Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday, BOM's Away with What A Hoot, Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts, and Bits 'n' Bobs for Design Board Monday.  Tuesday with Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River and Sew Cute Tuesday with Blossom Heart Quilts.  Wednesday with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Sew Fresh Quilts with Let's Bee Social.


  1. Looking forward to seeing this secret project. That's a great line of fabrics. Good luck with that move.

  2. How funny, I just used that light blue stars fabric on a quilt I'm working on! Can't wait to see the final product!

  3. Oh what fun!! Maybe you could come babysit me and bake??? ;-)

  4. Hello Cathy, thank you for linking at Bits 'n Bobs! I am looking forward to seeing your project grow.....looking good so far!

  5. Hi, Cathy! That is the coolest text fabric for your Americana background! This is the worst I've been tempted to go "off-stash" and buy some fabric for the QAL :) I hope your move goes well.

  6. Oooh - flying geese! I'm excited to see this one!
