Doubling Up


This year I have been o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d. with the Sugar Block of the Month club from Stitchery Dickory Dock. Each month Amy has came out with great patterns. I am so in love that I am making a twin sized quilt from the January block for my sister!


While creating October's block I realized that at the end of the year that would only be 12 blocks and with sashing would amount to a baby quilt or a very small throw after adding a border. This just wouldn't do! I ordered more secondary fabric and cut into my stash. I went back and made doubles and sometimes triples of each block, with the goal of 30 blocks by the end of the year.  Right now there are 24 done.  Whew! 








Every time I lay all these blocks out I fall in love in a little more. Only 6 more to go!

  12. I love seeing all these blocks together and can't wait to start sewing some of my own. I've been making Christmas presents the past 4 weeks or so and just about finished them all now. Then it will be time for me to make my own blocks - it's nice to see all your colour combinations to give me some inspiration :)

  14. Great blocks! I always love to see blocks made up in different colorways. It amazes me how different a block can look just by using different fabrics and colors.

  16. Do you ever sew anything ugly? Yet another beautifully pieced selection of gorgeous colours, Chelsea. This is going to be another lovely creation.
    Like Joanna, I like how you have repeated the same blocks and yet no two look alike because of your clever fabric choices.
