Block party!

I thought the end of term would never come, but it did! I didn't feel like launching into any big sewing projects over the weekend so worked on finishing up some blocks.
First up Monday Modern blocks for Linda. Linda chose the 6G Quilt designed by Sarah Fielke - I was a bit worried about my ability to get nice tidy points, but I seem to have managed ok. I think this is going to look really good when all the blocks come together:

I've also been playing around with colour combinations for the December HST block from In Color Order. The first was a disaster - so bad it went into the bin! I'm much happier with this version. The solids are all Moda which I got from Helen (along with some great colour advice).  The background is Etchings Charcoal which might just be my new favourite neutral, it's such a pretty soft colour. 

Finally, I made version 2 of the block below. I made the first one a while ago, but couldn't decide if I liked it. So I made a different version. Mmmmm. Still undecided.

Sketch blocks

Hope you are finding some time to sew, or at least relax in the lead up to Christmas!


  1. I love the charcoal HST block. Great colours.

  2. Love the December HST Block - might have to try using some solids myself - it is so effective.Personally I like the brighter option of the last two blocks. Merry Christmas - hope you get lots of sewing done in the holidays.

  3. Yay for the end of term and future sewing time ahead!

    Loving the solids HST block! Gorgeous!
