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!…

May Sugar Block Club

I finished my May Sugar Block of the Month Club block about a week ago but just haven’t shared. This fifth block is called “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. Here is Stitchery Dickory Dock’s block that I needed to follow…

This was a fun one and mom said it’s here favourite of mine so far…

(Ooo, just noticed the yucky join of the bottom left block, oh well!)
I like how it turned out with the fussy cut centre. I’m also happy with my choice to keep and all white background.

Of course mom has finished hers as well. Apparently she didn’t like her first attempt but I love it!…

Her second block is gorgeous too!…

I think mom’s showing me up in this BOM club.

Mom’s Blocks

I have to apologise because I’ve had these pictures for a few days now and haven’t posted them. I’ve been sewing up a storm on some placemats that I’ll show very soon. I have an opportunity to maybe do my first craft fair in this posh town of mine. I hope the Yummy Mummy’s will like my baby quilts and want them for their very own! More on that later. Now I need to share mom’s March and February BOM squares…

Aren’t they gorgeous! I can’t decide which I like the most. The February blue and green fabric choice is perfectly complimenting but I really do love the wackiness of the March orange one. I know she’s always critical of her work but she’s amazing and I think they are perfect…almost as good as mine, ha!
