Lots of Blocks

The sewing fun continues!  First up is a grouping of all of the blocks for Donna's quilt along.  I finished number six and really like how it fits in with the rest of them.  Three blocks are done for the Christmas quilt that Trish and I are each making.  I love seeing how we each are using the same bundle of fabric to get different blocks.  Trish is such a dear friend of mine that sewing together across all these miles is very special to me.  I decided to tackle my fear of templates and join in with Charise and her Vintage block quilt along.  I am thrilled with how the first two turned out.  The pink one is called "Rose Dream" and required curved piecing and the yellow and aqua block is called "Night & Day" and required sewing Y seams.  The rest of the group is way ahead of me but that's ok, I'll make it slowly so I don't make a bunch of mistakes.  What are you working on today?



  1. Renee,
    These blocks are all so lovely. I love the Christmas one with the striped background fabric. You handled it perfectly!

  2. Love all of your blocks, the Vintage blocks are my favorites!!

  3. These are looking good Renee. I'm doing a little sewing today too, just finishing up some pillows to list and actually making some just for me:>)

  4. love all of your blocks, Renee! I want to make the vintage blocks too! I have some of them saved just have to make the time to sew them.

  5. Now that looks like fun! I love your combination of fabrics. I especially like the block in the first photo with the pink, yellow and turquoise. Looks like you're looking through a curtained window into a bakery shop :)
    Had to put away my fall table runner that I've been working on as I knew it wouldn't get done in time. Top priority is the Christmas stocking I'm making from a kit for grandchild #6.
