A Few More Blocks

I finished up a couple more blocks for the first small project this year...

Block A is called Old Favorite, block B is Snail's Trail, block C is Flower Basket, and D is Dutchman's Puzzle.

I am designing this project myself but am getting the measurements for these 10" finished blocks from one of my very favorite quilty books:  Judy Hopkins' 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, which I've mentioned before.

This block is for the cornerstones and is called Broken Sash.  The size chart for Broken Sash only went down to a 4" finished block and I needed a 2" finished block...  so I had to do a little math... 

I've not decided on the exact order of the four larger blocks but there's no hurry on this project.   


  1. I guess I hadn't realized that this project was self-designed. Good for you! I am looking forward to seeing this come about.
    I like the little square cornerstones. Nice touch. : )

  2. Your blocks are turning out so nice! Will be a beautiful quilt and I look forward to seeing your quilting.

    I think making sampler quilts is fun because each block is different and the sewing is much more interesting. The first quilt I made, way back when, was a sampler quilt and I loved seeing how each block turned out. I guess that's why I like scrap quilts too!

  3. I'm loving this!!!! Of course it is self-designed!! You're a master!!

    Blessings and hugs!

  4. I love the Snail Trail block. Impost add it to my list of things to try!

  5. This is going to be so nice. Love that you're designing it yourself.
