Sewing Blocks

I think I'm up-to-date with the "Goodnight Irene Sew-Along".  Hoping to make my quilt a bit larger than the original plan.


Last weekend a couple of friends celebrated Big Birthdays - had a lovely time on Saturday night at Barbara's birthday dinner.


Dear Marina sent me a fantastic bagful of Bonnie and Camille "Bliss" offcuts.  I've added these to my stash of "Ruby" and a couple of "Vintage Modern" fabrics and have started making the "Scrappy Trip Around the World" - a short attention span has struck again.


All the blocks have the tiny polka dot as the central diagonal

So far none of the blocks are pressed after the initial strips are sewen together and the blocks aren't sewn together - I'm not keen on pressing the blocks until the final layout is decided because there are so many seams.

yours is looking really nice too....I think I am going to go for the 5x5 to start with, but I have tons of little squares already cut so thinking of making another quilt later. Only time will tell on that one. I put just the x's down together and I think that would make a fun quilt too.
