Friday Night Block Party: Snowball, Bowtie, Broken Dishes

December 20th 2013

Crazy weeks in December for all of us right? I forgot all about the Block Party last week, my sincere apologies!  You were probably too busy to even look! I know I have been running around hosting, planning, shopping, wrapping, crafting and quilting gifts. Whew! I need a vacation!

So this week we have 3 blocks! The finish of the Snowball blocks. the Bowtie and revisiting the Broken Dishes.  All featured in the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt Book. Block #81, #10 and 11.

The Snowballs from last time were almost done as they just needed the corners and here are a few.

And then I added the ornament tops for the Vintage Holiday Quilt and the quilting has begun!

Below is the Bowtie I made with Leftover Dr. Seuss fabric. NOT loving it, but I will probably revisit some blocks….


And here is my new and much more attractive Broken Dishes. The last one was a disaster!

I chose these tiny scraps from my stash from this table topper I made.

Daisy chained the triangles, broken dishes HSTs

Pressed them open to dark side, broken dishes laid out

Arranged them just so.. broken dishes rows

Sewed the rows together, always pressing aftewards,

Oh!! Before I forget! The winner for the November giveaway of two charm packs from Moda is Susie from Susie’s Sunroom.  She had multiple entries with all her linkies and comments increasing her odds, way to go Susie. Maybe you can share with your sister ; ).
