Good old fashioned chocolate, and not just one chocolate but a triple chocolate pound cake over at Country Pleasures....those who know me know I don't really like cooking but this sounds divine and not so hard to make ;-)

Amy Gibson has a terrific easy cathedral window style baby quilt tutorial over at the Moda Bakeshop using a layer cake....she has made it into a baby size quilt but I can see this looking stunning on a queen size bed. I love this idea and how easy it seems to come together.
Buzzing and Bumbling: Free Instructions for a Scrappy Owl Block: Are you wanting an easy way to make cute little owls for a quilt, pillow, place-mat, table runner or how about a panel for a bag?
!Sew WE Quilt!: Guest Blocker with Jennifer and her Propeller Block
What a great looking block to try. Sew WE Quilt has some more great block tutorials over at her blog, so jump on over and have a look.
An update on the Propeller block - well some interesting reading anyway about it being considered an antique block. Shows a couple of ways you could make this block up into a quilt. Would look fantastic done in modern fabrics.

I really love the way Joan is using up her selvages...I have been collecting selvages for some time now and saving it for "just the right" project....not knowing what that was going to be....but now I think this could be it.....I really love how effective this looks. Joan has gotten her ideas from Instructions for the Red Zinger but has added her measurements which helps greatly.
TLC Stitches shares her way of making faux piped binding.
I also noticed Trisha has a very different way to make nine patch blocks using squares not strips .....seriously need to give this method a whirl.
