Tula Pink mini front - Building Blocks Tuesday

I've been plenty busy around here.  I am STILL cleaning and dusting from our remodel.  But, I have made some significant progress there.  In fact, I have removed myself from the dining room and am sewing back in my dungeon studio.  There is still dust falling, but I am happy to be back in my own space.

I've even started working on several of the mini's I am making for swaps due this month and next.

Esme Restyled block with Tula Pink Saltwater

This paper pieced block is called "Esme Restyled" and was found in issue 16 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  I made it for my partner in the Tula Pink Mini Swap, where we had to use Tula Pink fabrics.  I made this one with the green colorway of Saltwater, and I hope my partner likes it.  I considered fussy cutting the fabric so that each triangle would be the same, but I didn't quite have enough.  In the end, I like how the octopus seems to be peeking out of some of the triangles.

I will be working on the quilting later today, and I am hoping to keep it simple.  But, you guys know me, I will probably start simple and before I know it every millimeter will be quilted.  Only time will tell!

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.

Thanks for reading,



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!
