a block of the day

I love this block! It's called the Stripy Circles Block, and I saw it on the Block Party! blog, here. It's a lovely block to do, you get all the fun of the strip piecing, but also the drama of a circle block, with none of the difficulty! You have to give this one a try, and imagine how awesome a whole quilt like this would be?


Happy Thursday! ♥

I love fabrics and color, but have never been very good at a sewing machine. Maybe, one day, I'll get a new one, and that might help!

I love this block -- its so cute. I make blocks like this too, but instead of appliqueing them I inset them into the block. I have yet to make a quilt like this,though, and really need to! If anybody wants, a tutorial for my method its at
