Blocks, Blocks, and more Blocks

Over the last few days I've been busy working on lots of blocks,

Clue4  Bonnie Hunter's Mystery "On Ringo Lake"

                                              Linking up with Mystery Monday Link Up 4

Some  Aussie Hero blocks and the first one I sewed was like this.....  Grrrrrrr ..............

sew I had to do a little reverse sewing.........

My blogging friend Mary from Needled Mom asked if anyone would like to make a few "Thomas Fire Blocks " for the folk who have lost everything in the HUGE fires in California USA.
we can send them to The Ventura Modern Quilt Guild"   who will make them into quilts and distribute...
You can find the address and pattern for the blocks HERE..

These are the ones I popped in the post today......

Then I made the last Fat Quarter "Quilt-A-Long blocks..
Wonder when I'll sew them all together ??????

Now to get back to quilting my Roundabout Quilt

Happy Stitching,
Hugz  Maria. :)


  1. That would be something that I would do lol! Gee that chocolate and turquoise is effective. Lovely blocks to go to California and your quilt along blocks look great x

  2. Just love your new Christmas blog header - very festive indeed!!!

  3. sew many blocks! so sweet of you to send blocks to California. I know those quilts will be well loved

  4. Your blocks are all so pretty, Maria. Small chuckle at the one star as I can relate all too well to that. I love your fire blocks with that center fabric. Those will be very touching for those who have lost everything.

    Your BH blocks are fabulous. It is a lot of little bits, but the color combinations are so pretty. Nice to have a new color to work with this week too.

  5. Thanks for the link for the Thomas Fire Blocks. It’s the first I’ve heard of it and certainly looks simple enough to whip up a few. Yours are lovely, especially with the extra added Aussie love in the centers.

  6. Your blocks for the On Ringo Lake are sooo pretty--can't wait to see how yours all comes together!! And I am sure you are not the first one to sew the star block pieces in the wrong order--those are nice and bright--and neat blocks for the Calif blocks--thanks for doing that--and I still have block 11 and block 12 to do on the Patchwork blocks--and I wonder when I will get them finished and how I will put them together????? I will worry about that 'next' year!!!!!
    enjoy the moments, di

  7. You've been busy. Love all your blocks. Hugs,xx

  8. I've done shattered stars too!! haha.... lots of lovely blocks... very soon you will catch up with me with regards the number of tops you have.....

  9. Your mystery blocks look fantastic. Sorry I couldn't help LOL at the mis-sewed star, haven't we all been there, done that?!

  10. Your On Ringo Lake is going to be spectacular. You're doing a great job of keeping up. I need to make my Ventura fire blocks tonight or tomorrow. And yes, I'm know for sewing the parts of my stars on backwards! Do it frequently....

  11. It's amazing how far these blocks go. They are quick to make and send them off and there is a quilt in no time. Keep,up the good work..

  12. Love your blocks! So pretty!! Your work is so precise!! And I LOVE Miss Lacey!! So festive!! Yogi says Merry Christmas, too!!

  13. You've had a busy time. Love the colour combinations for the Ringo Lake quilt

  14. Lots more beautiful colour. Merry Christmas Maria.

  15. Hi maria lovely blocks you sure have been busy xx

  16. Good for you doing the quilt along. I looked at it but decided I need to finish last years before I start a new one! Your mis-sewn block is funny - I know, probably not to you. :)
