Block Making...

It's been a week of making blocks for me. Well, actually this one was made a week or so ago. I could't show it until the recipient had it in her little hands. I made this mug rug using scraps from my Marcelle Medallion quilt for a very generous and ridiculously funny quilter. Just a little thank you for Carrie who blogs here: La Vie En Rosie. The block is one of the Lucky Stars paper-pieced blocks.

And speaking of Lucky Stars, I'm caught up and August is complete...

I'm up to nine blocks and it's not looking like I originally envisioned it, but I'm totally lovin' how the blocks look together. So typical of me with long-term projects; they evolve!

I also made a couple of bee blocks this week...

House blocks in Kaffe Fassett fabric for my Girls Group...

And a solids block called Lucky Pieces by Faith from Fresh Lemons Quilts for Carolyn in the Redbird Bee...

And finally, I finished up by blocks for "Fresh" from Simply Retro...

For the first time in a while we have a free weekend, with no plans except for a dinner date. Maybe I'll get these set together.

Have a great weekend!!


  1. "Fresh" makes me want to add to my Must Do list!

  2. You seem to be on a roll - go with it! Your lucky stars are beautiful - the colour scheme is unusual but one I like!

  3. Those lucky stars blocks are stunning. I love how they all work together.

  4. I love your Lucky Stars color scheme! It keeps getting better with each block!
    and beautiful work on the other blocks too!

  5. Better "ridiculously funny" than just plain ol' ridiculous... right?

    Just so you know, I will never actually use the lovely little mug rug. Take the chance of spilling something on it's perfection?!? As if! (And yes, I'm kind of messy that way.) Instead, it has a place of honor - meaning "front and center" - on my inspiration board. It's where it belongs because truly, the work you do is inspirational.

    In a blogesphere (spell-check is going nuts with that...)that is too caught up in doing what everyone else is doing, I love that you know what you like and that's what you do. Your sense of color and design is exceptional... and I want your fabric stash. ;)


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
