The cat is awesome! :)
I just love this block in general but really love it with the fussy cuts! Yours are awesome...I love the bike one as well as cat...oh I love them all!!
I love these! The cat and the VW van are my favorite.
Thanks True - it does lend itself so well to fussy cuts. I could probably spend hours coming up with combinations.
Cute, cute! The fabric you put with the VW Bus is perfect!
Clairealex - Thank you! I was so happy to find a few pieces of that fabric in my scrap bin. I have no idea why I had it either.
Love the blocks. I am in for the progressive swap in January. This is a great swap idea.
Drnic2c - Sounds good. The biggest problem I'm going to have with the swap is giving some of these blocks up. I'm just going to have to make multiples of them.
SO much fun to look at all these cute blocks! How big is the center square?
Terryt1955 - I fussy cut them 2.5 inches square minimum (usually more like 3) and it finishes at 2 inches. The overall block is 4.5 unfinished.
great new additions!
I made six today. I needed something for my improve-robin and it worked great for the project. Of course, I made 1 for myself. They come together really quickly.
Drnic2c - I hope you post them. I'd love to see what you did and how you put them together for the robin. They are fast once you get your fabrics selected
These are wonderful- love your fabric choices!
These are fantastic! I can see where they would be totally addictive to make!
OMG the ninja!
Just scrolled thru all your blocks. What an amazing assortment! I want to play in your stash! They are all so cute it's hard to pick a favorite, so I won't. But you definitely are making me want to join the band wagon.
Terryt1955 - Thanks! I do have way more fabric than I should but I'm working on using it up. Of course, 4-inch finished squares isn't the most efficient way to do it (but it sure is fun).
Well these would make the most amazing border on a quilt that's for sure! And you would need a lot so there you have reason to keep on making them while using up your stash. Do you have a dedicated sewing room where your stash is all organized? I could see how this project could make your area look like a bomb went off. At least that's how I tend to work, spread out all over the place!
Love new blocks...that sheep is so cute! Love how many fussy cut fabrics you have...
Terryt1955 - I share a sewing room with my husband's office. We had lots of great stuff built in but I spread out in to the family room where my stuff covers the foosball table and other surfaces. It does look like a fabric bomb exploded when I'm putting together combinations. I usually get it picked up at the end of the day or at least neatly stacked.
True - I bought a couple of fabric bundles that I got a lot from and have found things in charm packs I've bought. I've also gotten random bits included in with etsy orders too.
Love the ninjas, sheep, grumpy black cat, shark....all of them!
Whatthebobbin - thanks - that means a lot coming from the Queen of these blocks! and thanks for giving me the idea in the first place.
HawkFan Well I didn't invent the block. I am certainly this blocks biggest fan though :)
So stink in' cute...every all of them! Love how you matched each fussy cut to surrounding fabrics. Each block becomes a framed pic.
Thank you so much Charwirfs - I think I enjoy these so much because I don't have to visualize an entire quilt. I did try to match fabrics, not just color-wise but also design elements and/or texture. I so appreciate your "artist's eye" feedback
I like them all! Where on earth did you find narwhal fabric??
janepez - I got it at a LQS and I think she still had some when I was in there recently. It's "out to sea" - michael miller fabrics. It's got whales and narwhals. These blocks are so much fun to put together. When I host the March swap, this is what I'm picking
This it like watching a great movie...flipping through these...love them.
I love these, very cute.
I love these blocks...I don't even think I could pick a favorite, because I loved so many of them. Super cute!
I'm going to have to make some of these, but you set the bar very high. You have awesome blocks!
Thank you Carolmarie - the lady is from the Ghastlies series which I love. The cat with the pink border is from that series too.
Thanks Skynme - I know how you feel - I have several favorites and keep adding to the list as I go
Thank you Readerowl - I will warn you though, they are addicting. Great way to use up scraps too!
So cool. They're all really creative, but I especially like the ninja.
OH my goodness..that owl is too cute! Does he have a mustache and glasses!?
sew_what - thank you. The ninja is definitely one of my favorites too! As soon as I saw that fabric I had to have it
I just love these and that owl (with a mustache??) I have to have!! I saw this project and wanted to join but I'm afraid to start one more thing. Hmmmm . . . maybe after Christmas??
Thanks Kathie - I will be hosting a swap of these in March here on ThreadBias as part of the progressive swap group. Aren't those owls great - found them on etsy.
Okay, I must say that I am sooooooo jealous of the fabrics in your stash. These are great blocks. Keep up the inspiration. Can't wait until March for the progressive march.
Drnic2c - I am seriously addicted to fussy-cut-friendly fabrics. I waste far too much time looking online but they're so much fun!!
I love these blocks. I took part in the Christmas block exchange and had so much fun. Let me know if you do a swap. Thanks, Michelle
Boopsi Michelle - I've got your name on my list of people to notify when I set the swap up. These are so addicting and the swaps are a lot of fun. It's great to see what other people come up with
