Vintage Block Along, Leftover

This is my Leftovers block, and all the little squares you see really are little!
They're each l l/2" square, and are leftover from other blocks.
All the fabrics are from various lines of Lori Holt's creativity.

I love all the bright, happy colors!

Vintage Block Along, Crossroads

Crossroads block, I've made it a few times before :)
Lori had a tutorial for her Crossroads block quite a few years ago, and I made a Crossroads table rummer.
You can see it here.
All of the blocks (except for the background) are 2 1/2" square.

I don't always have time to sew, since I have to pack everything up all the time, since I don't have a sewing room at this moment.
Sometimes I'll just get out my cutting mat and rotary cutter and cut block and put them in a sandwich bag.
It works for me right now :)

Vintage Block Along, Wildflowers

I love this Vintage Block Along of Lori Holt's!
I have been living with our things in storage, and only kept a basket of Lori Holt fabric to work with, so I could continue making the blocks for this quilt.
This was a fun one to make.

I have two large shelves of Lori's fabric, can you tell I'm a fan?

This is block #28, 
I'm very anxious to see what the finished quilt looks like!

Stellar Stars

My friend Nedra invited me to join the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild, which I did.
Each year, they have a quilt that they offer as a block of the month.
This year it's Stellar Stars by Purple Daisies Quilting.
Nedra and I usually get together once a month and work on our blocks together.
We invited Brenda to join us on our sew day, 
and we had such a fun time!

With Nedra's help, I was able to finish my block, Grandma's Glitter.

Nedra is a month ahead of me, and her block is totally paper pieced and much more complicated!
Nedra's block is called Astral Plane.

It's so much more fun quilting with friends :)
