Christmas &Sew Bee Blissful Blocks!

Today was a great day for mail!  There were 3 different
packages in my box.  Each one of them containing swap
quilt blocks!

First up is my Christmas Block  for September!
My favorite color is green,which this wonky star has
quite a bit of.
It is not something that I would have made
for myself.  Because I have not ever made a star block yet.
(need to try that one of these days)
I really like it tho!
Thank you Partner :)

Next up are blocks for my Sew Bee Blissful block bee.
Sorry the photos are not very good,I was trying to take them
outside on my deck.  The wind came up and so I had to
snap them quickly before it blew them away!

I requested 2 blocks for my month,a signature block,and if my bee mates
wanted to and had enough fabric another 6.5 scrappy block,also for
the back of the quilt.

For my "little"extra I requested a goodie recipe for the up coming
So in the future I will be posting about these as I try them out :)
These blocks are so adorable!  Love how other people put
the fabrics together.
This is going to be a super cute quilt.

This week has been such a crazy busy one.  With inventory
at work.  Which meant working 7 hours and then going home for
about 3 hours and then back to work for another 4 hours.
I am so glad that it only comes once a year!

Sewing was out of the question for most of the week.  As I usually
do that in the evening after dinner.
So this evening I had to get in a tiny bit of sewing.  Didn't do much
because I am tired.
However I did make a potholder :)

This is the back/bottom.  I added a loop for hanging in one of
the corners.
This was so easy peasy,I got it right the first time!
I found the inspiration for this project here.

Gil (my son) recently asked me to make him a quilt!  I am so
excited about that :)
So I will be playing around with some trying out some blocks
and then sending him some pictures to see what he likes.
This is the first one,it is a 9 patch but isn't exactly square.
I made the blocks 2 1/2 x 3 1/4

Hope everyone has a sweet weekend :)


  1. What an awesome compliment to have your son ask for a quilt! I can't wait to see what you make him :)

  2. What a fun Christmas block! Does your potholder have overlapping triangles on the front?

  3. That's my favorite kind of mail! Love the blocks!!!
