April's And Sew On Block

It's the beginning of a new month, and I was able to make my latest And Sew On BoM!

A fun, fun Block of the month!

Kristy, the host and designer of  this And Sew On BoM, has made another super -cute pattern for April!
It is available for FREE during April,  at her Craftsy site! {Link here}

Kristy's April Block   called  “Snip It Real Good”

You can still make the other blocks in the sew along ... they are available for sale on Craftsy.  She has quite a collection of beautiful and fun paper pieced patterns now!  I just LOVE her designs!  And....She even has a complete alphabet ( upper and lower case letters) and numbers & punctuation!

The handles have the pins fabric

The thread   with fussy cut

And Sew On...Here are the 4 blocks so far....  

I am going to make a mini quilt for my sewing room, the sunroom, with these BoM's.
But, I also love using these patterns and incorporating them as a center block for special  projects. 

Here is a block that I started with:
Snip it Real Good    to be used ....

.... As a feature block in this tote bag

I made a scrappy wonky star for the back block

I used my quarter foot for quilting lines around the star

The inside had pockets (I pieced some owls into the pockets front)

There's a zippered pocket inside, too

The back side , with a scrappy wonky star

The finished Sewing Tote Bag
Next, I am going to make a few more journal covers.  Have you checked out the Flickr Group page yet or added your pictures if you have made one already? Come on....join in with us!

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Those scissors are amazing! I can't wait to see your quilt when it's all done, your blocks look great x

  2. Looking sooooo good! I love the way the fabrics coordinate - awesome picks! And that tote bag is sew super sweet!

  3. Thanks for the lovely post Susie! I love how your blocks are looking together - going to be a fab mini for your sewing room!

  4. Oh your And Sew On blocks look fantastic together!

  5. Love, love, seriously LOVE this bag. You are the queen of paper piecing and what a lovely way to use the block.
    p.s. 'Bag' says it is very happy living in a far away land where it goes out and about on fabric shopping expeditions with people always asking 'did you make that?' or 'where can I get the pattern?'

  6. How nice! I've not tried paper piecing yet. Maybe that will be a summer challenge. :)

    1. Start simple and take your time! It grows on you...

  7. Oh my gosh! I love your blocks and REALLY love you tote bag!! That is absolutely adorable!! And I love the idea of making a quilt with these for your sewing room. So cute!!!

  8. What a fun idea-to use the block for a tote bag! I love your pin fabric and the flowers, too!
