This week I have two Patchique' Blocks and two Sew Kitschy BoMs to share with you.

|#2 Stripe Check from the Book|
I followed the helpful tips that Amanda, The Patchsmith , has explained in her blog post , since this block is made up of 36 two-inch squares. It involves sewing the two fabrics in 2 inch strips together, and cutting that new strip crosswise. I was happy that it all turned out, using my scant quarter inch.

Patchique' Block #106: Ken giku (which means Sword-petaled chrysanthemum)
|Block #106 Sword-petaled chrysanthemum from book|
This block is basically a dresden plate, with 16 petals. I wanted the flower to be brown, with green and red colors to be featured. I started sewing, and held my breath when it came to adding the last petal into the circle... and the petals fit in beautifully. Whew!
