If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Beltbuckles Anyone?

My good blogging buddy, Gene (make sure you pop over to his blog and check things out) was experimenting with his EQ6 and designed a wonderful quilt, which he said reminded him of beltbuckles.  I asked his permission to try out the design and just got started.
The design called for 70 some odd half squares so I decided to  make the "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha"McCloskey's method which are on the bias.  It works so well, let me tell you. And what with using my new Shark iron with power steam, the fabric ironed like melted butter.
Of course I couldn't wait so I placed a row on my small design board and I really like what I see. I chose swirlly orange fabric (Marble Textures by Moda Classics) with lots of movement, a butter yellow and the black print fabric (Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics) is my favorite.
Stay tuned for more.

Oh...I am so excited! It looks great. Funny thing, I call the block a "Crescent Wrench" and the top part in your picture looks JUST like a crescent wrench. I love your fabric choices. Thank you so much for taking on this challenge.

I am going to have to learn to make the HSTs that way.
