Building Blocks

I promised myself that I would finish some long overdue WIPs. And I have! (More about that in another post!)

Meanwhile I'm satisfying my urge to start new projects one block at a time. Well that's how all quilts grow, isn't it? What I mean is, I'm making more complicated, time-consuming blocks, and then returning refreshed to the WIPs.

Here are some of my blocks:

I joined Don't Call Me Betsy's Lucky Stars BOM. Here is my February block:

Here is my test block for the 3x6 Bee:

Two new blocks for my Harry Potter Bookshelf:

Monster Book for HP bookshelf
This is the Monster Book, in case you are wondering!

second from the left in this block is the basilisk fang, but it's white and the sunlight bleached it in the picture!

And lastly, three 12" Swoon blocks so I can try to finish that quilt too.

  1. wonderful blocks ... not sure which I like the best xx

  2. Great blocks! I can see why that monster book would take a while to get many pieces!!

  3. Love all the blocks and fabrics and those Swoon blocks are gorgeous :)

  4. These are some wonderful blocks! What fun!

  5. Sue, I love your bee blocks. I am also making a swoon quilt too, its going slowly!

  6. The Monster in the bookcase block scares me. Thank goodness I have a while before I have to tackle that block. I just started block #3.

  7. You have been busy! I like that block for your bee with the three overlapping stars


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you. Really!
