Last year I joined the Sugar Block Club, hosted by Stitchery Dickory Dock and while I made great progress in the early months, avoiding paper piecing and then an absolutely insane work schedule meant I fell waaaaaay behind. One of my goals for 2014 was to get caught up, and week three home with the baby is when I focused on doing so.
This week I managed to finish three blocks: Lucky Star, First Frost and Camp Out. Here are some pictures to show you my progress!
|How cute are these little blocks?|
I am not sure how I feel about the finished Lucky Star Block. I think the text print size is too large, so I don't love my choice. I hope it doesn't fade away in the quilt.

|These tiny triangles look so cute.|
|First Frost Block|
|So many tiny tiny HSTs. They took quite awhile, especially since they were all trimmed down to exactly 2.5"|
I feel really good about how many I have done. I think I have one more non-paper pieced block to go and then there are three paper pieced blocks that I am AVOIDING LIKE THE PLAGUE. Seriously, I am going to avoid them for another few months.
|Camp Out Block. Wow, these HSTs took a long time. And there are so many seams that make this block a pain in terms of pressing. I carefully pressed each seam as per the instructions, and still there are so spots that I think will be trouble come basting/quilting time.|
Next quilt? One for a work friend!
Blocks look great. I see what you mean about the text block - though the fabric itself is gorgeous...ReplyDelete
