Quilt Story Block Party

Fresh Poppy Design

Traditional Block

This is a Garden Walk block that I made using '30s reproductions. The pattern can be found in Eleanor Burn's book, "Egg Money Quilts".   It is one of my favorite blocks of all time!  The poor darling is languishing with its siblings in a box, crying out to be quilted.  This is the year of finishes!!!

Modern Block

This is one of the blocks I made for Anina's Pinwheel Party.  You can find the links and everyone else's quilts and blocks by using the pinwheel party button on the left sidebar.  Such a fun new spin on the pinwheel, and I added fussy cuts to all of the squares for a little fun!  This quilt too is calling to be put together this year!!

Creative Block

This block was made for my January Sew Bee It.  Meredith asked for four letter words and sent the most wonderful fabrics.  You can explore all the goings on of this bee and the wonderful ladies in it by using the Sew Bee It button on the left sidebar.  I just couldn't resist using the cute little birdie for the dot in the "i".  Love me some fussy cuts!

Be sure to visit all the other wonderful entries in the Block Party!!!




  1. Your blocks are all great! I really like the little bird dot for the i. The thirties repros are so soft and pretty. I like the idea of the fussy cut on the pinwheel block, too. Very creative efforts.

  2. Your traditional block is so pretty!

  3. I am loving all your blocks! I really want to do a big quilt using that traditional block, so pretty!
    that little birdie is the sweetest little dot for an i if I have ever seen! LOVE that!

  4. The kiss block is adorable and perfect for valentine's day! Much better than any 4 letter word you may hear while riding down the highway with me.

  5. Hoping you win! Knowing how much time, energy, effort and sacrifice went into making these!

    Gee, does someone have a birthday coming up?

  6. I've never seen a garden walk block before ~ very pretty! Nice job on all your blocks!

  7. Lovely blocks, but -- oh, dear -- Meredith was brave asking for four letter words ;)

  8. Your traditional block is so soft and pretty!
