Technically I’ve been sharing these blocks for half a year! That’s probably the longest I’ve ever lasted at anything. The block this week is called Storm at Sea. I kind of like how it looks round, but with all straight-ish lines. I call them straight-ish because some of these blocks are quite dodgy.
I love this block so much! Although I’m going to subtract points for the 2 1/2 hours it took me to complete it, so my love is sitting at around 75%. The block is titled Blackford’s Beauty. Hopefully the next one won’t take me as long to make.
Ok, so I am back up to date and in order again This week is the Hovering Hawks block. I think the green isn’t strong enough for my choice of neutral fabric. Oh well, it’s done now and I have so many blocks to go that there’s no way I’m redoing it!
I love Mother’s Day. The kids gave me a gorgeous new teapot. I love teapots. And tea. And the kids, surprisingly. This year Steve asked if for Mother’s Day I would like a new sewing machine. I looked around to see what I could get and I didn’t really want to replace my existing 419S …
Block 19 is so very imaginatively titled “Untitled III”. However unimaginative the title may be, I actually think this is a pretty block. Maybe because I’ve used blue and it’s my favourite colour? Possibly. Again, I’ve slightly altered the block to make it easier to paper piece. It’s nice churning these little guys out again.
This week’s block is: Next Door Neighbour. It’s not near as embarrassing as last weeks. In fact, I quite like this one.
So much for my one a week should be manageable. This weeks block is titled: Untitled 2. As imaginative as I am. Yes, I am a little out of order. I got to week 17 and couldn’t figure out how to create the block, so I skipped past a couple while I worked out my …
This week is brought to you by the block Dutchman’s Puzzle. I kind of messed up with my fabric selection as the small centre windmill is meant to be an alternate colour. Too bad, so sad I say! I’m not unpicking any more of these bleeping things.
This week is the King’s Crown. Not quite sure what part of the crown this represents.
Only 480 blocks to go! Just kidding! I’m not doing the complete 501 blocks. There’s a whole bunch of applique and Christmas ones that just don’t make the cut for this quilt. This is the Windblown Square. I slightly altered it as I just couldn’t work out how to have a whole block in the …
