Our Block

Friday, September 13, 2013



      Above is a picture of our block. I made a 6" square. The smaller blocks look so sweet when completed! The only problem with tiny blocks is you have to sew a lot of them for a bed quilt. An example of this dilemma is shown below. Barb started making these blocks a couple of years ago. After each one she would exclaim, "Isn't this so cute?"  She would carefully pick her favorite prints for the baskets and match them up with a background which perfectly complemented the basket. After making about 80 blocks, she thought she was just about done. We laid the blocks out and found she was no where close to being done. She really needed 291 basket blocks! She then just started grabbing fabric from her stash. She no longer cared if the prints went together well.... she had 211 blocks to go! (Those of you who have made this quilt probably know the feeling!)



The basket quilt is found in When the Cold Wind Blows published by the Kansas City Star Quilts.


Next Barb thought she would make a quilt of 25 blocks. Twenty five large blocks would be so much easier than 291 blocks....but it still has 125 small 4-patch blocks. The Irish Chain quilt is in our Weekend book.


How can you use small 6" blocks without making 291 of them? Make a table runner. Piece 6 blocks, add some setting triangles and a border and you're done. For our block pattern click here. Our table runner directions will follow next Tuesday.


Jeanne Zyck quilted this for me last night. Just finished the binding. (Talk about sliding in for the finish!!!) Thank goodness for Jeanne.




The prize is pictured below. Leave a comment and we will select one person to get the three Jelly Rolls. One each from some of our favorite fabric lines. The contest ends on the 16th. and we will announce a winner then. Good luck to all.


The blog hop is almost done. Here are the remainder of designers you don't want to miss.

  2. All the quilts are beautiful and the jelly roll colors are just lovely. I'd give them to my mom, who at 76 years young is wanting to learn to quilt! She's a great sewer but has never really quilted. I think she'd love it and it would help keep her mind occupied. Thanks for another wonderful opportunity!

  64. I LOVE all of these quilts - and tiny blocks are the best (even if you do have to make a zillion of them)!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Talk about favorites, your fabrics are so yummy. Don't much care for the giant blocks I see here and there, but you are right small blocks require so many. Requiring 484 flying geese blocks is enough to send me to a different quilt pattern. Your quilt blocks above, all small of them are as cute as the dickens. Stephani in N. TX (Tomazec@aol.com)

  72. I have several quilts of my Grandmother's and the pieces are so tiny because they used leftover scraps and old shirts, etc. Nothing went to waist. I can't imagine the patients she must have had. I suppose several worked on it together but still! And by hand no less!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I too am learning patience with a full size quilt with small blocks but I know it will all be worth it when it is finished. Thank you for the opportunity to win some of your beautiful fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love to win the jelly rolls...have always loved and used your fabrics. Just last night I went thru all your books and found a pattern from the Cold Wind Blows book to use for a challenge. Thanks for taking part in the Moda Blog Hop

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love your quilts, and I'd love to win these jelly rolls. I've just cut out the fabrics for 16 3-inch stars, and even that is daunting. I can't imagine making 291 baskets. (However, I have a longstanding UFO. I've handstitched 49 grandmother flower garden hexies, out to 4 rows, and discovered that I need to make about a dozen more for the size to work.... may be a 2014 project.

  100. blue and white are so lovely together. I love sampler quilts, but they're a lot of work if you're doing big quilts, I agree. I like your idea of table runners with samplers; it feels so much more manageable, and you could pick colors and fabrics to match seasons.

  105. I just did something similar, making a quilt for my grandma. I made 16 large blocks and thought, okay, done now, right?...nope. I'll have to make at least 10 more blocks! Haha, live and learn! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh how I love jelly rolls. And that table runner is so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love the blue/white table runner!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I know the feeling of thinking you are almost done with the blocks.... and then discovering that you need more!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Yes, the small blocks are cute but it does take a lot more of them to make a bed size quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  110. It was so fun to see that basket quilt. Believe it or not I'm in the process of making those basket blocks. Love your books and fabrics, cross stitch patterns, the whole nine yards. You two are favorites of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  111. You're so right on those small blocks that I adore! I've made your basket block from Cold Wind (the reason I bought the book!) -- I love the blue fabric! But I love all of your fabrics and I have quite a lot in my stash! Thanks for the chance to win. I'd be delighted!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Would love to win your beautiful give away! Thank you. I have always loved the basket quilt and have made a few blocks but have a very long way to go!

  113. I love the blue and white table runner--it looks so fresh! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love your block, and recently have fallen in love with quilts that have lots of small blocks and tiny pieces. There is something about them...they are charming and beautiful to me. I'm currently working on 256 4" sawtooth stars, when I originally thought I needed 156. I can totally relate to abandoning the carefully created fabric collection and start grabbing stash fabric because you need to make more. :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. Little blocks are cute, and thank goodness they make decent little quilts as well as awesome bed size quilts. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Thank you for sharing with us Alma, I completely understand with the using small blocks because they ARE so sweet, but heavens they take forever! My husband reminded me that "quilts are supposed to take years to complete" and I just laughed. Have a happy day!

  117. Blue is sooo restful and your block pattern on point makes a great table runner. The scalloped border and quilting brings it all up another level of loveliness.

    ReplyDelete
  118. What a great prize; thanks for the chance to win it! I wondered, when I saw the last few days, all the little blocks you were making, whether you were making a whole quilt! My best friend was making that basket quilt when she died. Her DIL is finishing it. A LOT of baskets, but so cute.

  119. I often forget to pay attention to the total number of blocks required in a quilt pattern. I get caught up in how much I like the design, buy the fabric and then it dawns on me as I am cutting hundreds of pieces that maybe I should have looked at the pattern a little closer. haha...Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  120. Love the table runner! I have been looking for a good pattern for a Christmas present and this is it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  122. I can definitely commiserate on the basket quilt. I am making Trick or Treat right now. It's what I call my long term project. I went into it knowing I would not be finishing it anytime soon. LOL!
    BTW: Love your new book Tending the Garden. I have the main quilt on my "must make" list and I pull the book out all the time just to 'plan' on my strategy.

  134. Small blocks do look cute but needing so many can put me off, which is why I often do lots of smaller projects like runners (maybe I am just lazy). Thanks for sharing the block and the great giveaway too.

  137. I have found myself in that same quandary of thinking something looks easy and finding out it is much more involved than I thought so I end up making lots of runners or even hot pads. I love your fabric choices and am happy to have a chance to win.

  138. I just love jelly rolls, and they look so cute all stacked up in a pile. And I am so glad to hear I am not the only one that thinks oh simple, and then find it is a little more than that ;)

  162. Quilts with a ton of blocks are usually the prettiest! Love the fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  163. The older I get, it seems, the bigger the blocks I make -- I feel like there are still so many quilts to be made (and so much fabric to use)and I'm going to run out of time! Lately I've been doing 18" blocks, but they are still made of smaller components ....

  167. Alma & Barb -- This is my first blog hop and it has been very enjoyable. Have been keeping up with the blocks. Am in the middle of Holly & Mistletoe, made Home Sweet Home and Birds of a Feather. Just completed Trick or Treat with all 291 baskets -- I just love TEDIOUS! Thank you for all the great patterns.

  170. Wow 291 little baskets! I'm so impressed. I started a Cathedral Window quilt years ago with little 2" windows - all by hand - I will never make it to bed size but maybe a good sized wall hanging one day . . . Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  172. I love how the blues and whites look together, it reminds me of our first bed quilt. It was made with English linens and had a similar floral pattern.

  176. I love fabric so I'd be saying the same thing about each little basket "see how cute, oh I love this one" BUT I'd also say "What I have to make 200+ more of these little suckers" It would have been a pretty little table topper.
    Love your fabric giveaway....my colors!!
    Thank you!
