Double Duty Post.....finally

I have been having more internet issues again and have sadly been absent from a lot of the posts that should be happening....
The happy news is the internet issues should be resolved by the end of the month, never to happen again!! 


I love finding these Double Duty ideas and then sharing them with all of you....
because let's face it,  if I share them here I wouldn't forget them, lol!! 


 What a great idea for pant hangers:


 and think about this as a great mini quilt wall, especially if you can find some antique pant hangers

and how about these clear shoe storage hanging systems, not just for shoes! Being clear it makes it so easy to see everything...


What about you?
What is your favourite double duty item?

What I've Been Up To:

Modern Selvage Quilting
Here's a sneak peak to an upcoming blog tour, May 10-21,  I get to be a part of. On May 19th I'll be posting for my day on the blog tour talking about Riel Nason's new book Modern Selvage Quilting. I'm joining in with 8 other bloggers and Riel to share the book, our thoughts, maybe a project or two and a give away......

Here's the project I'm working on: I've been saving selvages for years....so I had a mess of them to press...2 days worth, lol.


This is what I ended up with after pressing and having looked at the 17 different projects available... this combination just begged to happen! Solid fringed selvages.....I'm in love....

Checking in.....One Block Wonders BOM

I thought I would check in and see how your April blocks are coming along
for the One Block Wonders BOM
I've already seen some great minis over on IG and in our FaceBook group.....

by Lynn, Sharon and Ioleen


It's hard to believe we are over half way through April already.... our next link up will be happening

next Friday, April 29th

And our awesome sponsors are....


$30 Gift Certificate

and


FQ Bundle

Don't forget you only need to sew a minimum of one block to join the link up party so there is still plenty of time....

(I used varigated blue thread and the Super Nova digital E2E quilt pattern)


What I've Been Up to:

I have so much that I want to share....but most of it is for the BOM and I can't show you until the month the blocks come out......it is so hard.....so so hard....but I will show you a sneak peak of the colours I'm using for the next two months. Yes, you heard me right....I have May's quilt made, it just needs its borders and I'm already onto June or July....not sure which month I'm going to share it in yet....

RJR Cotton Supreme Solids


Yup, the next few months of sample quilts are all about the solids....What Shade Are You?


And I finished the quilt I was making for my sister and her new husband, 
Of course being as it was a wedding gift, a late one.... if I get it to her before November it will still arrive in their 1st year of marriage, ;)  but still....
Don't you just love how the quilting makes the hearts look like patchwork!!

(I used Ginger Heart digital E2E quilt pattern and a pale yellow thread)



That's it for me....

Have a great week everyone.....
and
get those blocks done for the link up...
