A Scrappy Star is added to my Aurifil Quilt Blocks !

Although I was too late to participate in the bee that led me to make this first block, I really love following the monthly blocks that are presented for the Global Scrap Bee. I was inspired to make this month's block with scraps that go with my Aurifil BOM collection.
The tutorial is by Jennie, found at here at Clover & Violet. (I especially love her Strippy-Figgy version at the bottom of the tutorial!) 
My next block is from the June Designer for Aurifil's Block of the Month, Heidi Pridemore. Her block is titled Chain Links. She provided a tutorial AND a pattern to complete a Chain Link Quilt:-) It is neat to see how the block looks repeated in a quilt! Both links can be found here, in her interview with Pat Sloan. Heidi said she designed the block with her two sisters' in mind, which I found endearing since I also have two sister's :-)
She seems quite bubbly and happy, and of course I like her name, so I made a visit to her blog and found Heidi lives not all that far from me, in Chandler, AZ.
I made an 8" version of Chain Link, and I added some hand-stitching to help incorporate it in with the Bear Paw Block from a couple month's ago.
This morning I pulled them all out and snapped a photo of progress to date:
I wanted various different sizes because.

Yep, just because.

I add whatever strikes my fancy to this block pile !

Thank you for reading today - hope you are having a happy and quilty week ;-)

Linking up with Lyn at What a Hoot, for BOMs Away, and with Jen at Quilter in the Closet for Building Blocks Tuesday.


  1. Love all the fabrics you picked and your blocks are lovely.

  2. Love all the fabrics you picked and your blocks are lovely.

  3. This is going to be a fun quilt. I went and looked at the one block repeated in Heidi's quilt, and it was totally different from how I'd anticipated! Pretty rad!

  4. Love the colour scheme you've got going there. Making a quilt with different sizes blocks is pretty scary to me, but a challenge I hope one day I will set myself too.

  5. Beautiful blocks! I can't wait to see how they all turn out.

    Thanks for linking up to Building Blocks Tuesday.
