Autumn in spring - Building Blocks Tuesday

Autumn Leaves for Nita

Spring is the best time to think about fall, right?  I spent most of yesterday making these Scrappy Autumn Leaves blocks for Nita in the We Bee Canadian bee.  I only finished two of the three that I need to make; however, there was a problem with the second one.  Can you spot it?

Autumn Leaves for Nita

Yep!  I accidentally added the stem for the third block to this one.  I will have to get my seam ripper out before I continue.

Anyhow, I do like how these blocks turn out, though they take a heck of a lot longer to make than the Modern Maple blocks I have made in the past.  I also noticed that some of my seams were a bit more off than I normally like.  I think I need to double check my quarter inch foot.  Perhaps the kids bumped it out of alignment or something.

If you are interested in making your own blocks, they are actually called Autumn Glory blocks and the pattern is HERE.

Camp Mommy continues this week.  Today, we are headed back to the dentist so my 5 year old can get a crown because her filling keeps falling out.  Oh joy!  Initially she was very excited to get "a crown", but once we explained that it wasn't the type of crown for dressing up like a princess, she was less enthusiastic.  Although, yesterday, she started telling people that soon even her tooth would have its own crown, so I guess that is something.

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!
