Over the weekend, I stitched up some New York Beauty blocks and learned some new techniques in foundation piecing. It was so fun to see these come together, and incredibly rewarding!


Then, I decided to turn one into a small item for a solids swap I'm in. It's a custom size to match my starting block, and I'm so happy with how this turned out!

Also picked up some Amy Butler and Denyse Schmidt at 75% off at my local quilt shop... woooh! The lines were Black Friday-esque, but I brought some friends to keep me company.

 Did you do any Superbowl sewing?


  1. Oh wow - I love your foundation pieced blocks! They are amazing.

    I did get a little sew-perbowl sewing done - just some more eye spy blocks for my kids blanket, 28 done and still like a zillion to go!!

  2. I was oohing and ahhing over these on flickr! Love it as a little bag! No sewing for me on Superbowl, we had friends over to visit and lots of littles running around.

  3. Those blocks are awesome, and it totally works as a drawstring bag!

  4. OMG those are adorable xxxx I lOVE the little bag that you made xxx I am sure your swap partner will be very happy xxx

  5. woot! awesome blocks, neat idea making one into a bag! I worked on english paper piecing yesterday whilst on the couch... but only caught the tail end of the bowl!

  6. I WISH I had done sewing yesterday...Your bag is fabulous!

  7. Oh. My. Gosh. I am LOVING those blocks!!!! I must find the pattern and go it! It's gorgeous!
