What would you do?

This is a new block I designed and sewed out yesterday. I posted a picture on Facebook to make sure everyone could tell what it was and also to see what people would do with it if they made one. I got a lot of great suggestions like mug rug, wall hanging, one block in a Christmas sampler quilt. This block measures 6" x 10" and I may add borders to it to make it a little larger. So, what would YOU do with it?

Just Listed on Craftsy!

Happy Jack
 I just listed these 2 paper pieced blocks on Craftsy! There is still time to make a couple before Halloween. Add some borders to make a quick decoration or make 2 and turn them into a treat bag. Here is a link to Craftsy:
Search under Halloween to find these patterns or Susan Cook to find my other designs.

I love a good pun!

The real question is "is THIS a good pun?" This is a picture of my newest design. Its called DEAR SANTA, I'VE BEEN NAUTICAL. The signal flags spell out Merry Christmas and I've got little wreath charms on the sails. I may add little plastic Christmas lights to the sailboats, too. I can't help but giggle a little when I tell someone the name of this design, but is that because I have a weird sense of humor or does it make others smile, too? I think this design would work for anyone who lives near a lake or wishes they lived near a lake. Do you have a sailor in the family? Most of this quilt is paper pieced with the exception of the moon and the black circle on the "I" flag. They were done with fusible web applique. I was able to put this top together in a weekend so there is still lots of time to make one for yourself or as a really unique gift by Christmas!
