A Sweet Block....

I don't know if it is the torment of knowing that spring is right around the corner while we have snow on the ground, but I am definitely in the sweet little spring -y block mood....

I wanted to test out this block to see if it is something I would consider working into a quilt....

The entire block measures only 9 the arcs and kaleido's on this baby are teeny.  I have very small hands but I felt like I was working with oven mitts on....these pieces are so delicate.

I would like to try this again with a true green (love the green bandana fabric - Katie Jump Rope - oh how I wish she would re-release that line)  so I will need to look into something that matches the picture in my brain...

Added a little yo-yo for a touch of whimsy!  I kind of like it!
Have a great weekend!


  1. OOOO they're like little nosegays! Absolutely perfect! Love it!

  2. So intricate- that would be a lovely quilt but it would sure take more patience than I have at the moment. Can't wait to see what you do with it. :)

  3. love love LOVE this! looks a little daunting though, I'll have to put it on my "maybe someday" list ;]

  4. I've never seen a block like it, I love it and it reminds me of those fabric cones.

  5. Ohhhh, sew sweet and pretty! Very different and special! You did a great job, even with the oven mitts on, LOL ;-)

  6. 'Kinda like it'! It's beautiful! Make more please and send them to me!

  7. Mary, you have the best ideas! Your blog has quickly become one of my favorites!

  8. Good Morning Mary.
    Your block is so precious!
    I wish I could learn how to quilt rounded edges, from you. :o) I would take every class you taught! :o)
    Have a nice weekend.
    Sincerely, Trish
