Blockheads ~ Block 18

Happy July!  While the past few days have been all about the red, white and blue here in the colonies, it’s a whole lot more colorful in Figgyland.

Wonky Figgyland.  That’s me, not Joanna.  And I blame the camera – phone – for flipping the orientation so that this blocks looks lopsided.  It’s actually quite square – for a Rocky Mountain Puzzle.  A very scrappy one.

As before, the fabrics in this block are from Chestnut Street by Fig Tree & Co. and the background is from the upcoming Ann’s Arbor by Minick & Simpson.

The block show above includes fabrics from Snowberry by 3 Sisters, Rachel Remembered by Betsy Chutchian and Grand Traverse Bay by Minick & Simpson.

This is Tammy’s beautiful fall-inspired block – the fabrics are Sycamore by Jan Patek, Hope’s Journey by Betsy Chutchian and Miniature Gatherings Backgrounds by Lisa Bongean.

Question of the Week ~ Do you stitch every day?  Do you plan it?  Or is it a habit?  How much time do you spend each day sewing or stitching something?  

I wish I could say that I did stitch every day but that’s just not happening these days.  I do have to plan it – plan for it!  For me that means that I need to have something ready or store-bought for dinner, have an “in the works” project that is easily worked on in short spurts, and-or have a challenge of some kind that I’m determined to meet.

I’m actually working on something like that now… stay tuned.

That’s it for today, July 5.  Be sure to visit Jan, Lynne, Betsy, Lisa and Jo to see their blocks and what other good things they might have made:

  1. I am in my sweat shop every day. Most days I am sewing but I do have the necessary clean up and sort times but for some reason I can always find ‘one little thing’ I need to sew even when cleaning and sorting. A day without sewing is like a day without sunshine.

  2. I’m so happy to see this block today because I have 16 leftover 2″ HSTs from the block I did last week! Yay! To answer this week’s question… No I don’t sew every day… but wish I did! Pat Sloan challenges her students to sew 10 minutes a day. Once I get up to my sewing room, that 10 min turns into an hour or more with no problem!! Too bad I have to work! But being the “Shop Mom” for our 3 autobody/paint shops, doing Payroll is a necessity! Now… maybe I could set up my Featherweight on my desk at the office…??!

  3. Love your beautiful block although I’m still secretly waiting for the nine-patch;-)
    I’m trying to sew every day but sometimes life gets in the way.

  4. Very pretty block! I can’t wait to start on it. I usually sew when the sewing mood hits me. I do not sew every day, though I would love to. My sewing room is also my office for my home business as well as my study room for grad school. So making the necessary space to spread out and sew can be a challenge. That is when I start moving things so I can cut my pieces downstairs at the kitchen table or other places. I get lots of exercise that way!
