It’s May 1st and we know what that means….another Sugar Block! Today club members will find the pattern for this cute block in their inbox.
I’m calling it “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” after my favorite Stevie Wonder song, and because I think it looks like envelopes…containing mushy love letters, of course. :) I am always amazed at the seemingly endless array of blocks to be made from a simple nine patch. Throw in a few half square triangles and some flying geese, and you’ve got something completely striking and fun. I also really love how the fabric choices really add dimension as well.
This is the fifth block in this year’s Sugar Block Club monthly series (late-comers, not to fret- you can still sign up).
I’m not typically one for solids, but I really dig how this is coming together! It feels like coloring with a brand new box of crayons- fresh, untouched colors on a crisp white sheet of paper. I’m already brainstorming about how I’m going to quilt it. Hmmmmm….I know the quilting is really going to show more than it would on print fabrics, so I need to be choosy. Might need to revisit Leah’s Quilting A Sampler class!
How are you all coming along with your blocks? Doing ok? Having fun? I hope so!
