    I'd really struggle with the accuracy of the seams with my ancient sewing machine which swings seams up, down, left, right and all over the place. BUT, I could make this work if I paper pieced it (which I am kind of addicted to anyway) so it would make a great summer holiday (no sewing machine on holiday!) project – keep the blocks coming so I have a whole collection to make by August! I love both blocks!

    Fantastic block design. I like the strong contrast in them. You could use a honey bun to make them. Add it to the list….

    I, too, would only be able to do this darling square via paper piecing. Voila, straight seams! Love your stashbuster blocks. They would be darling framed.

    What a creative way to use bright , bold prints. I save any pieces leftover fron my quilts and this a great way to combine small pieces! Thank you, thank you, Dotti

    I’ve always loved your colors of red and aqua and have used it recently in my quilts. Your two blocks are really nice and show off your fabrics in a wonderful way. The gray really complements all the bright colors in the block.

    How cute these would be done in kid’s themed print, like Mickey Mouse, Star Wars etc and framed on the wall. Thanks for sharing. Love the blocks

    Hi, and thanks for the fabulous tutorial! I just wanted to let you know I’ve made 9 of these blocks, in different variations, for a couple of bees I’ve been involved in. You can see the pics on my flickr page if you like:
    I also made one with deep slate (manatee grey) and now I saw you had done them too 😀
