When you think of Pat Holly, you think of appliqué quilts made with her sister, Sue Nickels, or miniatures with teeny tiny pieces. This quilt is nothing like either of those. Antique Tiny Trip (59" x 60") is just made up of squares...
 
Pat's quilt was on exhibit at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah Spring 2019 as part of the Small Wall Quilts - Stationary Machine Quilted exhibit.

It is so amazing...it is June!!! How did that happen? I don't know about you, but finally we have had a ray of sunshine in Sisters Country. I hope those of you that are still suffering through the weather systems remain high and dry. Here in Sisters Oregon we are on countdown to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and I am going to have a meet and greet on the day of the show at Fika Coffee. I hope I get to meet a few of you who will be coming to our sweet little town! I'll be posting more details on the Woolie Mammoth Blog and on Quilt Roadies. In the meantime, I thought what a better way to start the month of June off than a slide show of June Jaeger's quilts that were displayed in the Twigs Gallery. I love her work...it is like taking a hike through the woods around here. I hope you enjoy the view and consider taking a class with her someday!

June's Birthstone Block by MJ Kinman is Alexandrite.

Lovely Alexandrite gives hope to those who are in despair about their lives. It brings strength and constantly reminds us of the light. With wildly changing color, it is a reminder that life is not always what it seems to be. Thought to bring luck, good fortune and love, Alexandrite is also considered to be a stone of very good omen.

June's Alexandrite Birthstone Pattern makes a 17" x 17" block to either be used alone, in a project, or combined with other birthstone blocks into a birthstone quilt.

MJ Kinman Birthstone Series

We made the diamond block (April's Birthstone) and found that piecing it was very straightforward. It went together quickly, and most importantly, it was FUN to make!

Get great tips from Barbara about the Month 6 block of the Sizzle BOM. While she says it's probably the easiest block to make, there are a few things to look out for when piecing the block. The key is being well organized.

Click here to get the latest from Barbara at her website.

Barbara also talks about appliqué and mentions that now is also a good time to start watching Becky Goldsmith's Appliqué videos. Three new videos have been posted in her classroom. Even if you aren't making the BOM, Becky always has great ideas.

Eclat, by Sophie Zaugg of Switzerland, won 1st Place Piecing at QuiltCon 2019 this year. She was inspired by a street art mural and created a fractured shape which led to the title Eclat. In French, the word has several meanings including "fragment" and "light".

Take a moment to try and figure out how she pieced it together.
