I'm ahead this week posting a couple of blocks. I know that I have some applique blocks assigned that I have not completed yet. Still, I haven't had time to tally how many blocks I should have at this point. My goal is to post a few blocks and then I can get some other things done.

I must be in a churn dash mood. I like this block and it's a great scrap buster block. I did change the 3-piece corner units so that the print and background fabrics did not rotate around the block. I like the secondary design that changing the positions created. Homestead Hearth in Mexico, MO is one of my favorite quilt shops. They are over 100 miles from my home but I still visit them 3-4 times a year.

What fun block to make, especially around Easter. I'm calling this one Easter Pumps. I could have used fabrics that contrasts more but then they wouldn't have looked like spring-type shoes. In addition, I made my heels and straps in a fabric other than the actual shoe as shown. I just wanted to see how the shoes would look with two fabrics over using just one. I like them both ways and this would be a great pattern made in scrappy pairs, especially for a shoe lover. Be careful when paper piecing; you need to cut these wedges really big. Ask me how I know...
