Quilty Thankful Thursday - Blocks

Quilty Thankful Thursday #16

Linky Party, Thankful Thursday

Thank you so much for making and sending blocks for 2 very deserving children that are learning about quilting with me. The blocks have started to roll in, and as of yesterday afternoon, this is what they look like on my design wall:

I am really excited to see how these quilts develop and grow!

I was super lucky to win a 3 pack of Bloc Loc rulers from Happy Quilting and Ollie and Evie. They arrived this week. Photographing such shiny objects is really hard!

What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up (link up open for 48 hours on Thursday and Friday US Pacific time):

  1. Link up any blog post the past week that discusses something that you are thankful for, no matter how big or small (Did you win a giveaway? Did your seam ripper save the day? Did a friend do something simple and kind that made your day?).
  2. To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is http://www.instagram.com/quiltingjetgirl). Please hashtag #QuiltyThankfulThursday.
  3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
  4. Comment on at least a few of the other Thankful Thursday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

  • Oh I saw that you won those! Very exciting, I look forward to hearing what you think of them! All those blocks look great together! I love that origami boat.

  • OH! I missed your call for blocks. 🙁
    Honestly, I don’t have time to participate right now, but my heart would have wanted to!
    The blocks on your wall look great already. I hope you get more than enough block-love in the mail!
    I’m thankful there are quilters like you in the world, sharing their talents to make life a bit better for others. 🙂

  • They look so cute together on the wall. Today I am especially grateful for rain. We need the moisture. Quilty wise, I am grateful to have batting on hand again. I just bought 12 yards.

  • Oh that is an awesome win! I have been wanting to get a set of those rulers… considering they are so great for the HST that is so diverse! I hope to find out how well they are working out for you after you break them in a bit? Also… that is a nice stack already for those blocks! I cut mine last night and plan to sew them up this weekend as I am having a full sewing weekend (again) to catch up on a lot! I really can’t wait to see how you put these two together! It’s always so fun watching the process on your quilts.

  • I struggled with photographing one of my rulers for a tutorial cause it was so shiny and it drove me nuts for hours so I hear your pain there. All those quilt blocks are just wonderful for the quilts, I need to dig through my stash cause I think I have some Salt Air fabric scraps that I won in a giveaway that I’ll have to piece into a block and send your way.

  • The blocks look great, and that’s awesome about the Bloc_loc rulers because I love the 6 1/2″ one I have. If you have a rotating mat, I recommend pairing the two for the ultimate hst experience.

  • Those blocks are looking great now you have a good few come in. I’ve been starting to think about what to make for mine, and, predictably for me, I’m drawn to applique! But do you think applique blocks will fit in, you seem to be getting more purely pieced blocks?

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
