Carried away, by geese - Building Blocks Tuesday

MMB January block 1

I've been working on blocks for the Make it Modern Bee!  This one is an improvisational log cabin block for  Kelie.  I must admit that I got a little carried away with the improv part of the block and somewhat forgot about the log cabin part.  I hope she likes it.  I had so many scraps in her colors, it was hard not to keep adding them.  I probably could have made a whole quilt for her!

I also made this fun block for Samantha.

MMB January Block 2

It's called a Mama Goose Block!  So fun.  You can find a tutorial here.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what she does with this non-square block.

So what have you been working on this week?

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!

Quilter in the Closet


1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr 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 today!

  5. I really like your mama goose! Do link ups need to be posts only about blocks or can they be posts with blocks and other sewing as well?

I LOVE comments, they make my day! I may not always respond, but I DO read them...always.
