WIP Wed: Block 19 & 20 of The 163 Japanese Patchwork Book

Early last year I started making blocks from a wonderful Japanese Book titled (roughly):   163 favorite Pattern of Patchwork .  ISBN 9784391140.  It caught my eye because I have a serious love for Japanese sewing and quilting books, but mainly because each block was deconstructed for you so you could see how to best assemble them.  By December 2014, I completed 18  8″ blocks. Not too bad! I plan on continuing this project in 2015, so today I got my book out once {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – Sugar Block Club!

I have been cutting fabric and interfacing all day, but wanted to share my WIP with you before I head back to the ironing board.  I received my March Sugar Block Club e-mail this weekend. Amy’s theme for this month is a great one, and I really enjoy the stories and recipes she shares along with the wonderful quilt blocks. This month’s block  was a new one for me, and while it was time consuming it wasn’t as hard as {Read More}
