Pat and Jane announced the Splendid Sampler and can I not join such a fun project? Of course not!! :)
But I had to find my twists to make my journey different than anyone else's.

Fabric block pattern available at

I will make my blocks using selvages (on black background, idea from Riel Nason quilt) and I will use the same designs for crochet blocks for my "Mirror Mirror Afghan".
Speaking of which...

New block added to my collection of tapestry crochet blocks

And these are all together! (before the Splendid Sampler blocks)

Colors seems all over the place, but I plan to mix and match them until it looks like a cool crochet sampler afghan!!
That afghan is one of my three WGACA projects (to read more about this concept, read this previous post).

For the second project I designed and stitched a Stephen King's book cover

And the third project is my own Jane T: I completed three more blocks!

And this is the progress on the final layout
19 blocks done!!
I also completed my block for the Block Swap Adventure. Jen asked for a star in modern and bright colors. I hope she will like it!

Early this month I shared the second block for my Play with Me QAL

Look at all the different color combinations that people will use in their game boards!
If you didn't join, it's not too late!

Speaking of joining... do you want to join a blog hop?

And last, but not least, I want to remind you that I am working on charity quilts,
and I would love your help!! 
Quilts are for a quilt drive to help the kids in the DC General Homeless Shelter. 
And you can help me by donating orphan blocks, partial blocks, or fabric (scraps, strips, leftover, uglies, whatever). 
If you are willing to mail them to me, I could use them to make more quilts for these kids!!! 
If you are up for a loving donation, please send me an email at tweloq[_at_]gmail[dot_com] or leave a comment here with your email address so I could give you my mailing address. I promise that your donation will be used to make some kids happy and feel more loved!! 

Still no progress here... so sad... but I plan to spend more time on this in the next couple of months. I have many pieces ready to be quilted, just need to find some inspiration!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!
