Block by Block

I guess my favorite thing to do is to piece simple blocks. Here's a friendship block I made recently:


It's for a "Pea Pod" quilt. I can't find the link for it at the moment. It's from McCall's Quilting as I recall.

All the strip cutting I've been doing has created some new scraps and remnants. In addition to the Scrappy Trips blocks I've made a new batch of liberated stars. I especially like this one:



Here are the rest of them. If you double click on the picture you should be able to get a larger version and see the blocks better.



I've been trying out a very simple block to use between my many scrappy Shoofly blocks. You can see a few of them in the column on the right below.


I liked the way they looked so I made more. Here's what I had on my design wall at the end of the day yesterday:


Fun, fun, fun! The only problem is that my Parts Drawer is already overflowing. What am I going to do with more parts?!

What says you have to DO anything with the parts? If you love making them, then make away. When a need arises or an idea strikes, you'll be ready to go. Why is it that we put so much pressure on ourselves?!?!?!?
