Tuesday Quilt Block Jan. 27

Poor little blog, left alone for a month or so. I am back with a Tuesday Quilt block.

It was a very busy holiday season for me.  But I did manage to sew some log cabin blocks over the break.  I am using fabric that I collected in the '80's and '90's, to start a Christmas quilt.  Well over the years I fell out of love with these fabrics, and some of them look downright ugly to me now.  So the thing to do is to cut them into small pieces or strips and sew them together again,and get them out of the sewing room!  Let's see what we have.


I hope you see my point.  This block finishes at 7 inches square.  As of last night I had sewn all blocks together and started adding simple 3 inch borders.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

Tuesday Quilt Block Dec. 2

Well the flurry of activity from the Thanksgiving holidays is over! Now the flurry of craziness leading up to Christmas begins.

In the meantime, let me share with you a Tuesday Quilt block.


This is the Jane Stickle block called Farm Fields.  Alas, it is the last of the Jane blocks I made some time ago, so I'll have to share another project next Tuesday ( or start one - ha!).  I now have 56 in a box in my sewing room, waiting to be put together.  Isn't that always the case, another UFO (unfinished object)?

Tuesday Quilt Block Nov. 18

A slow morning at chez Viridian. My children had yesterday off for only a slight reason (messy roads, that soon got better) and this morning they are on a two hour delay. ???? It's very cold, and some wet roads have frozen over I guess, but really.  I am moving slow too.

It's Tuesday, and time for a quilt block.  I don't have many left from this burst of activity some months ago.


A simple hole in the barn door block, finishing at 4.5 inches.  And this too is 1930's reproduction fabric.

Tuesday Quilt Block Nov. 11

Well it turned out October was a very busy month for me, with a large out of town professional meeting among many other things.  I have neglected this little blog.  But I am back again with a Tuesday quilt block.


Another block in the style of Jane Stickle.  Oops, you can see threads and my seams!
