I’ve had a Couple……

of nice afternoons sewing, and have managed some more Nearly Insane Blocks.  I am piecing mine on the diagonal of the quilt. I find it easier for me to work out where I am and I like ticking them off as I go.
Its funny how the brain works differently for every-one. This works best for me.
This one is Block 23 more fiddly than you realiseBlock 23
Below is Block 29
Block 29
and Block 35 – this block took me all afternoon to piece. My purple is a little close in colour to the blue, but overall I don’t mind it.
Block 35
These little blocks are so addictive, that I really missed sewing them whilst my hand was in plaster. All is well with the thumb now, just need to keep stretching it with exercise.
Thanks for dropping by

Such lovely little blocks...I'm very envious of your stitching time right now.

WOW - all three of those intricate little blocks look AMAZING!
So much work involved - but so beautiful to see!

Block 23 is really pretty, Sue. But wow. That block 35 is the best! I like the contrast and unexpected use of that blue that looks like periwinkle. Good work!

I especially like the last one. Nice mix of fabrics.
