Grandmothers Choice #6: Aunt Eliza's Star

I again figuratively tiptoed into Blogger to check out this week's block....   *ahhhh*    ...not too bad!

I'm starting to get a handle on using the Art Nouveux fabrics and, with this large center, I had the perfect opportunity to fussy cut another large flower.

I had (what I considered) a very large 1930s print that I thought I wouldn't be able to use but by jingo!   This was the very block to incorporate that large print!

I had fun at my granddaughter's birthday party yesterday afternoon and have a photo to share of the birthday girl and her new tote...

....all in all, a very nice day!


  1. Very nice fussy cutting--it really makes the blocks.
    That is one happy girl with her new owl bag!

  2. Both blocks look great, Freda. Your granddaughter looks really happy with her owl bag -as well she should. :o)

  3. Great job on the blocks and the TOTE!!! Beautiful young lady!

  4. Awesome blocks!!! I too was gingerly peeking at BB blog!! Whew - one that I could do more easily. Kansas sunflower just about ate my lunch and I even hand pieced it!! I'll post my blocks soon. I was behind, but now I'm caught up!!

    What a little cutie with a darling owl tote! Way to go, Grandma!!


  5. You are doing just great with those blocks. The fussy cut centers are super.
    That tote is just perfect and she looks very pleased.

  6. Wow! Those are some great, super, fantastic blocks. I love the fussy cutting!

  7. Ah. You have succumbed to the fussy cutting pressure. Both blocks are beautiful. I love the little scene in the 30s print. Very nice job.

  8. Two great blocks, that art nouveau fabric centre looks really great, my block is cut out and waiting for me to stitch.

  9. These blocks came out really nice - great fussy cut. But ever nicer is your sweet grand daughter.

  10. I always especially like the 1930s fabric - so pretty.

    And pretty is the word for that granddaughter, looking very proud of her new tote.
