Quilt blocks

Good morning to you all! The sun is shining, the wind is's a nice spring day! Annabelle is in a running club two mornings a week, before school, so I take her on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:00. That's an hour before school starts, so Mason and I hang out until then. It doesn't make sense to rush home for him to get the bus at 8:20. Today we went to my favorite supermarket, Wegman's. I got a cute little braided rug for in front of my sink...six bucks!

I'm so glad that I have all my food shopping done and it's not even 9:30 yet.  Yesterday I worked on the May block for my coffee it is...

I decided to go with all the same flower fabric in different colorways for the cups. Fig Tree of course! The background is a beautiful browny-bark color from Lakehouse, with a pretty vine pattern on it. I really like how this one turned out!
I've also been making a block here and there for my 30s quilt.

After taking a look at this grouping, I realized I need more red, and that one is the only red I have. I really like how the red grounds the other colors. So I ordered this bundle from Keepsake Quilting. I loved that they have FQ bundles in specific colorways. Should be here in a few days!
Off to do a little cleaning before a mall excursion...I have two certain little nieces with birthdays coming up, so it's time to do some little girl shopping! Enjoy your day too!

  1. Oh I want all these blocks. I've wanted to make those cups like Pam for a while now. And your 9 patch stars have the sweetest fabric.

  2. I love the coffee quilt block. The fabrics you chose are perfect. I have some old 30's and 40's scraps of fabric from my grandmothers collection. I have alway wanted to make a quilt with some of the newer 30's fabrics. I will keep checking back to see how yours comes along

  3. Jen,
    I love your new rug and the quilts are all gorgeous! You have been busy :) I watched the Braves and Mets on TV the other night ... we are Braves fans being so close to Atlanta. When the Mets are not playing the Braves I am a Mets fan :)

  4. I LOVE the quilt blocks! So pretty and perfect!


  5. I love all of your blocks and projects. The rug is a great deal. I love the braided rug.

  6. Gotta love Keepsake Quilting! Have you ever been to the store itself?? Wow. I go to New Hampshire just to make a stop there for a few hours. :)
