More Block Talk in February

Back to some block-making!

Lately ,I have been so busy , that I didn't have time to keep up with my weekly blocks.
So it was fun to get some blocks  completed from my books.

 First block:  Modern Blocks Quilt A Long

And Sew We

February's  Block :    Parisian Star      designed by Leanne Cohen (p 128 )
                         Book:  Modern Blocks   compiled by Susanne Woods
 The Crafty Mummy is host for the tutorial this month.   This star is simple to make... a kind of wonky star.  I like this pattern.  It didn't take long to whip up!

The Second Block: The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Block

Block # 12:  Broken Sugar Bowl

FWSQ block # 12  Broken Sugar Bowl    Susie's Sunroom

I like how my Broken Sugar Bowl block came out, using the paper pieced pattern. However,  I did have to rip out a few seams ... after it was all done.   I told myself I would just let it go, but when I ironed it,  I couldn't "just let it go."     I had the wrong fabric in the center, in  one of the small blocks.  It was worth fixing it up!
Next time, I'll show some photos of the blocks all together.  

My Completed FWSQ Blocks so far    Susie's Sunroom
I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Love both blocks - the fussy cutting is perfect on your star block and the broken sugar bowl colors go so well together. But look at all those empty squares waiting to be filled. I would love to get back to making some FQ blocks too but until I do I will just keep watching you.

  2. Great blocks Susie! Love the fussy cut centre in your modern block :) Looks like we have made about the same amount of progress with our FW blocks ...

  3. Lovely blocks Susie :) your choice of fabrics are delicious!

  4. Two beauties this week! I think that wonky star block is the anchor block that draws all of the rest together. I love the fabric placements on both blocks.

  5. pretty blocks with perfect contrast Susie!! have a great week!!

  6. VERY NICE blocks Susie!!! I LOVE your fabrics!!

  7. I love your FWSQ-Blocks and especially the fabrics you use!!
