Catching up...

Since we were gone most of last week I got a bit behind on my blocks.  So the last couple of days I've been focusing on getting them made and pictures posted in Flicker and EQ.

This is the second block from the Block Base Sew Along.   I'm making these blocks to finish at 4" so these pieces were very very tiny!!  
I did use foundation piecing to get them done but even then it was very tedious and slow.   We have been assured that the next block will be a bit easier.  lol

And now on to the Grandmother's Choice blocks.  These are a weekly block so I needed to catch up with two.

The first one is #8 Rocky Road to Kansas...
It is similar to #2 Amethyst except this *star* is strip pieced (or stripe fabric used as I did).  I just wasn't up to all that sewing so I took the easy way out.  lol

And the second block I made to get caught up was #9 Brick Pavement.  It was so enjoyable to just sew a simple block and not have to worry about Y seams or complicated points and seams to match up.  This block was straight and simple and fun!  A very nice breather.

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda


  1. These are looking good, Linda! I noticed them in the previous post with the boxes and boughs, I thought anyway.
