More Mini Fox blocks - Building Blocks Tuesday

Hooray!  First Building Blocks of the New Year!

Well, you've already seen the blocks I worked on over the holiday, but they are just so cute I have to show them again.

I mean, how cute are these little guys?  I admit I was beyond excited when their little faces started coming together.

Mini Fancy Fox blocks

I miniaturized the blocks from Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Fox pattern down to 3 inches x 4 inches, so that I could fit a whole bunch together to make a mini for my Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap partner.

I got the top all put together before our guests arrived for the long holiday weekend, but then I had to put it away.

Fancy Fox mini WIP

Everyone has gone home now, but I spent most of the day today running errands and doing laundry (not exciting).  So, I haven't had a chance to back and quilt this little quilt.  I'm not planning on doing anything fancy, but I'm not sure yet exactly what.

Has anyone made any Ashley's Stars yet?

What blocks have you working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
