Sugar Block Club Catch Up

Well, it’s that time of year to get a bad head cold!!!! I’ve been out of commission for about 2 weeks now and have a lot of sewing to catch up on. I’m almost done my retro Christmas quilt which I’ll show soon but first I’ve been working very hard to get my Sugar Block Club squares done. I’ve done 4 squares in the last 3 days because I hadn’t done one since July. If you remember, I’m mostly using Amy Butler’s Alchemy line to make a sampler quilt from Amy Gibson’s 2013 Sugar Block Club found here. On her website now you can sign up for her 2014 club too.

These blocks were fun to make as always and I can’t wait to finish December and decide how to put them altogether.

This one was the easiest and quickest by far. The others have lots of little pieces!

All the pieces are cut and paper is ready for later today. I’m determined to finish all the blocks by the end of the year!

June Sugar Block

I’m excited because I have a lot of projects to share this week. First, I want to give special attention to the June block from the Sugar Block of the Month Club from Stichery Dickory Dock

Mom beat me to the punch this month and I was pleased to see her email a few days ago with this attachment…

Gorgeous as per usual. I love the dash of yellow.

I felt the pressure to keep up and worked on mine yesterday…

I love the square all cosy with the triangles around.

I love the fussy cut centre but realised I’d done the same for last month’s as well but in the turquoise colour way. See if you can spot them in this photo of the half-way point. How did it get to be June already!…
