Spring Break, Yikes! - Building Blocks Tuesday

Guild BOM block

I promised blocks this week and almost couldn't deliver.  However, I have spent the morning making these flower blocks for the guild's first charity BOM.  They turned out rather springlike.

These are simple snowball blocks with a common yellow center.  Cute, right?  And while these are not exactly my favorite kinds of fabrics, I can certainly see the potential of this being a great scrap buster.  I don't know about you, but I have quite a few unmatched 5 inch squares that I don't know what to do with.

I am WAY behind on everything else at the moment.  I spent quite a bit of time the last couple weeks getting my garden ready for the growing season.  Now that I am waiting for some of my plants to actually grow, I was hoping to have more time in my studio.  But of course, spring break starts tomorrow.  Which means, Camp Mommy starts tomorrow and other than a dentist appointment for all, I have nothing else planned.  Yikes!  Please wish me luck.

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.

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr and Instagram pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,



  1. I think you have some lovely fabrics in these blocks especially like the first large block ones

  2. The yellow centres really lift those blocks Jen, snowball seems too wintry a name for those flowery fabrics.


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!
