Asterisk & Wonky Quilt Blocks

I have always wanted to make a quilt and so I decided to do the  Craftsy Block of the Month with Amy Gibson. The class is free but you do need to purchase your own supplies.

You can use the recommended fat quarter bundle for the class or you can freestyle it. I went with the recommendation, I decided I did not want to try and figure out how to match my colors while learning to make each block, but next time I may be ready to get really funky with it and use some Amy Butler or Moda fat quarter.

I joined the class back in January 2012, but had a few other projects going on, but I am now ready to get my quilting on. For the month of January there are two quilt blocks the Asterisk and the Wonky Pound Sign block,  below are my first 2 blocks.

Install Rain Barrel and Compost Tumbler

Growing up we always had rain barrels, and this growing season, I wanted to incorporate a rain barrel in my garden and added composting for a bit of sustainability. A local botanical garden offers free classes on sustainability, using native plants and rain garden.


I thought of doing a DIY rain barrel but with all the planting I was doing, a bit of help is worth it, so I bought a rain barrel and compost tumbler, got a good deal from my town.



Lots of research online later, I found the perfect downspout rain water collection system by Oatey to channel the water to my barrel. I bought 2 Oatey system so I may make that DIY rain barrel yet :-).



I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
