Wow! Quite a variety.  Some of those blocks were so fun to make, others....meh.  I bet you will see some more of those Fancy Forest creatures in the upcoming year.  My eldest daughter wants me to make her a replica, and I have most of the fabric already cut, so why not?

What blocks have you been 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 on 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. Hi Jen! Here's to a lovely 2017...I didn't link up a block, but instead a tutorial for some nesting baskets. I'm trying to start my new year off with a more organized Quilting Studio, so the baskets are a way to keep things a bit cleaner! Wishing you all the best.

  2. such variety here I am lkiking the what I call elongated geese must check for a tutorial on those and will try and keep a record of blocks I make this year have already made 2.

  3. wondering how I grab your button if I am to take part in this challenge


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!
