TGIF Friday is HERE!!!

Welcome to TGIF Friday!!  I hope a lot of you had a chance to finish something this week!!! Or if your like me.... this Month - ha!!

Some of you may be new to my blog - so Hi!! I am Alycia  aka Quiltygirl! Many years ago I started my own Maternity Clothing company - and was actually the first one on the internet... ( don't age me tho ok!!)

One day I made a quilt.... it was for my Dad who had worked in New York at the Twin Towers ( 9/11)  for rescue and recovery. It has all the patches of all the fire departments of firefighters that he worked with,.... and I was hooked...

Bought a longarm - before really knowing what they could do - made quilts, and eventually sold my clothing business and here I am  - a full time quilter - who doesn't remember how to hem pants!!

Nice to meet you!!

This is my finish for this week!

I love a Churn Dash Block!!
The Missouri Star Quilt company had a tutorial that I fell in LOVE with 
and since them - have been churning them out of all my leftovers!

I even did a little math Tutorial on getting different sized Churn Dash's using their method of making them - you can find that here:  Alycia's Churn Dash tutorial

This is a Quilt of Valor and will be awarded to one of my Motorcycle Combat Veterans.
I think he will like it!!

Oh, the churn dash and the motorcycle are an unexpected combination -- I like it! I think a motorcycle vet will LOVE it.
