Storm Signal
Red skies at night, sailors delight.  Red skies in the morning, sailors take warning.  This is a signal to get you through the storm.

Star of Hope
It was fun to use this star patterned fabric for this block.  I won about an eighth of this pattern at the Sewing Summit a couple of years ago and was happy to see it in my stash. I believe this was a gift from Fabricworm, so props to them!

Squash Blossom
Speaking of Sewing Summit, this patterned fabric is what was left over from fabric I took there for a fabric exchange.  One of the lovely ladies there organized a color wheel exchange and each participant was assigned two colors to bring a stack of 5 inch squares to switch out with the others.  I was assigned yellow and yellow-orange.  I thought the seeded pattern would be fun for a color wheel and, in this case, fun for yellow colored squash blossoms.

Next up, strawberries, lightening, and a sparrow.


  1. Back to work on the spinster quilt? Great blocks. Especially the red one

  2. Those blocks are gorgeous. Are you almost finished with the Spinster Quilt top?
