Last Light Blue Saturday of January 2018

Not a very successful month for me...only 2 and 3/4 blocks.  (See previous posts having blue butterflies.)

Here's the work of last week.  This is the 3/4 of a Snowflake block. Maybe I'll finish it today, but hubby is home and requires my attention.

(Patterns for butterflies and snowflakes are from 365 Foundation Piecing Blocks  by Linda Causee. It was a wonderful Christmas gift from my sister, Barbara, in 2005. I've used it for all kinds of patterns, flowers, light houses, borders on an I Spy, birds, etc. It's a paper piecer's bible.)

Even though I love the book, I still have a pet peeve about some of the patterns. See that center "flower"?  I'm leaving that open and going to cover it with a yoyo. That many points coming together would just be a mess.  How come some designers don't understand this?  I see the one in the book that is made  of fabric has no seams there. 

Enough complaining... I'm off to get ready for a late lunch out with my Beau.

Happy Weekend!


  1. That is an amazing block!! IT looks very complicated!!!

  2. Two and three-quarters is better than my ONE scrappy block in BLUE!!! There were probably a hundred OTHER things that you accomplished during BLUE month for the RSC.

  3. It is a beautiful block, looks like you will have a gorgeous Rainbow quilt in the future. Go ahead one stitch at a time.

  4. It is always funny to see the sample blocks from books that aren’t sewn but just fabric bits laid together. Totally cheating in my humble opinion. Still, you small modification should make it much more doable.

  5. Wonderful block! I think it's great that you are adding your personal touch to it! (And solving a problem as well!)

  6. Yes, sometimes the designers don't think about how much fabric has to go in that one place. I'd just make it solid.

  7. Your block does look pretty! Hopefully, you will find some 'me' time so that you can get it finished.

  8. Thank you for sharing valuable information nice post,I enjoyed reading this post.


  9. I think your decision is the right one with the block. The Pink Peril I made last year withlots of designers, really showed who were the good ones.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
