Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 30 ~ All Is Well In My Garden


Welcome to Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 30

I have been busy in my sewing corner this week. 

Here is one of my favorite blocks:

This is my Bouquet block for the 

Summer in the Garden Quilt Along

The Free Bouquet Block Pattern may be found here. 

There is also another bonus pattern this week:

The Rose Garden Block Pattern may be found here.

I have not sewn this block yet.

I may or may not, as I need to layout my blocks

 and see if I have enough for the quilt I want to make. 

It is a pretty block.

I could always make a pillow with it or add it to the back of the quilt. 

Time for another day of sewing fun.


My 30 Days of Improv  Day 3 block is done! 

This took about 20 minutes start to finish. 

I was thinking to improvise a square in a square block.

So I cut an oversized square.

Then I cut off the corners to be used to frame my center.

The I trimmed down the center square. 

I will save the blue strips for another block.

This is what I kept of the blue grunge for this block.

Then I cut some narrow strips to frame the center. 

I sewed the strips around the center and then trimmed it to size for my triangles.

I am happy with how this block worked up.

It is a slightly larger than my day 1 and 2 blocks, 

but it will all fit together somehow in the quilt.

What are you sewing today?  Please share!
