Wow, its been a while - Clearly I'm a sucky blogger...

But I have been checking out lots of cool stuff and following along.

I'm doing Leah Day's Building Block Quilt Along. And am nearly caught up...

These are some of my favorite blocks.

I've also realized that I suck at circles. Oof, its bad!  Wiggle, waggle. Blech.

Also caught up on Amy Gibson's Sugar Block Club. I went a little cuckoo, myself,  for paper-piecing.

This last one was not so successful and may end up being re-done. I wanted more contrast between the orange Kaffe Fabric and the blue. It actually reads a little better in the pic, because for some reason reds and oranges are deeper when photographed on my camera.

I also started and finished the top of Kimerly Einmo's Mystery Radiant Jewel Quilt from Craftsy. (which I bought last November :-[ )  I did make it a little bigger by adding one row and column. Which meant that I had to purchase more fabric - it was such a hardship.....heh heh heh.

August? Bring it!

Off to quilt...


  1. Beautiful, beautiful stuff. Your FMQ looks great!

  2. Your FMQ is wonderful. I really should follow Leah Day more closely to get practice in.

  3. You have done a lovely job on quilting the blocks. Don't worry about the circles - they will improve with practice. I do a lot of charity quilts, which is a great way to learn to quilt. ;-) BTW You are a no-reply blogger, so I couldn't thank you for your nice comment yesterday.

  4. You have been doing a lot of catching up! I love the guts to use red thread on white--and it looks good too! I am behind in watching the Building Block videos. I too practice on charity quilts. Even wiggly lines hold a quilt together, and after laundering, not so bad looking.

  5. I think it all looks wonderful, your building blocks makes me want to go back and get started.
