Piecing blocks has become my guilty pleasure

I finished up two blocks for the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM. This is block #3...
I also did the Bonus Block...

I finished more than half this one before I realized my needle was positioned one notch to the left. The resulting block is barely over 12" and my setting will need to compensate...

I may do another of this block anyway - I love the version by Bejeweled Quilts. Looks like a completely different block with her value choices! Jacquelynne set up a Pinterest board if you are interested in seeing the different versions so far.

I am really trying to avoid temptation to make new blocks this year; hence the guilty pleasure reference ;-)

I hope your week is off to a great start. I am still thinking about 1st quarter goals. Thankfully Adrienne allows time for indecisive folk like me to link up - we have until the 17th. Today, I am linking up with Lyn for BOM's Away. She has attached the piano key swag border to Ruffled Roses, a quilt I have enjoyed watching her piece this past year. It is going to be a beaut!


  1. Wow. Those sure have a LOT of pieces.

  2. They look fab, how annoying about the needle position!

  3. Whoa - it does look completely different with the other value approach. I really love your blocks.

  4. I love the fabrics you are using on these. Those centers will provide a great place to spotlight some fancy quilting. I'm doing them with the embroidery in the centers.

  5. Love these blocks and you pick the best fabrics.
