Canning Season and Baking Day Blocks

These blocks were fun to do. On the canning jars, the instructions called for 5 1/2″ jars but I had some 5″ charm squares of fruits and vegetables so I added a 1″ strip in the middle of the block. It is hard to see because it is the same color as my carpet. The mixing bowls and spoon block was really easy with Lori’s instructions and diagrams.

Chicken Foot and Egg Basket Blocks

These blocks are coming together so quickly. I just hope all the different fabrics that I am using will blend. I am using mostly scraps, except for the background fabric. I am also thinking about adding sashing and cornerstones on each of the blocks. Not sure about that yet. Will wait and see how tired I am when I get to that point.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Tierney, these blocks are so much fun. Thanks to you I finally started them. Looking forward to seeing yours. I just finished the barn and, so far, it is my favorite. (I’ve said that a few times) I think an ‘all barns’ quilt will be in my future. Thanks for looking.
