Do you have a Stiletto?  If not, do you need one?  Here’s a wonderful Tutorial on how to make these. And the creator also listed a few reasons WHY you need a Stiletto.

My favorite is “Vintage Delight” ‘cause it looks complicated but it isn’t…. 

 

But “Mann Creek” REALLY got my attention!!!  2 simple-to-do-blocks and with strategically placed fabric colors of lights, darks and mediums, you get the look of “circles”, stars, and every other shapes!!!   Incredible!

On a personal note, we picked up yet another pantogram.  This one is called “Double Bells” and could be used for a wedding quilt or a Christmas quilt.  It has 2 bells with lots of swirly ribbons – GORGEOUS!!!

 

Have a great month of June!
