RSC20: January - green

I tried a new block this week for RSC, and it's a keeper.

The block is called Square Knot at Missouri Star Quilt Co.  I ran across it a while ago, and it's been ripening in my idea file, waiting for its opportunity.  Info and instructions are HERE; they're based on 2 1/2" strip sets, but I'm just cutting pieces from odds and ends.  I'll be using 30s repros and random ToT lights for these blocks, both of which need to be reduced in my stash.

I still have one more idea simmering in my mind for RSC20 -- hopefully I'll get it together for next week's green report.

Enjoy more green RSC fun at

Blockheads 3

Moda Fabrics launched their new sew-along today.

I enjoyed the Countdown to Christmas sew-along that they offered during December, so I decided to do this one also.  It includes 56 blocks in a variety of sizes and layouts, so there will be plenty of opportunity for personalization. New installments will come out
 on Wednesdays.

Here is my preliminary fabric pull -- I'm aiming for sort of a "mod" vibe.


Today's block pattern comes from Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts.

Lotto Block Extravaganza

I won the block lotto last month at Sunshine Quilt Guild, and just received a LARGE stack of 'potluck' quilt blocks!  As I was admiring them, two color combos jumped out at me.

It was quick work to assemble those blocks into tops.  Both will be layered and quilted in the immediate future, and donated to Wrap a Smile

And I still have plenty more blocks to work with!
