Quilt Blocks Update

I have done some work on some quilt blocks recently

First I completed the latest Fat Quarter Stars block, called Fractured Star, designed by Nancy Miller

I made the next block from a design in the magazine pictured below.

I bought the magazine after reading a blog post by Jacquelynne Steves mentioning that she had a block in this issue.  With 100 blocks to choose from there are so many great designs I would like to try sometime.

I made Jacquelynne's block using her Sewing Room Social fabric line, I think I would like to make enough of these to make a quilt.  It was a fun block to put together.

The next project I am a little behind on but hope to catch up soon.  I am working on my Scrappy Plate Club quilt .

I gathered my fabrics, cut the prints out using my new Dresden Quilt tool, a total of 240 print pieces.

Each piece was folded and stitched across the wider end.

I stitched all 240 together without cutting the thread more than a few times.

Here they are ready for clipping the corner and pressing.

4 done, 236 to go.
I think I am going to like this quilt with the 1930's type prints.


  1. those dresdens are going to be fabulous! Cheers.

  2. So much work with such pretty results. That book definitely looks like it is filled with inspiration. Hope your day is a good one. Tammy

  3. Sherry, love your quilting! That is one thing I have not done a lot of! You do a great job!
