Shoo Fly Blocks

I had a free day today 'Home Alone' and managed to sew my 14 Shoo Fly Blocks for the Mystery Quilt from Issue 1. I think I am happy with my choice of colours. Well, after sewing 14 blocks, I will have to be!

Also, good news. My hanky linen arrived in the post today. I ordered it from E Bay in the USA and it arrived in Spain within a week. Fantastic! The postman must have known I was itching to start the stitcheries.


  1. they are so perfect, I am a little scared about starting mine... I have a tendency to not have pointy bits meeting where they should be :O!
    The colours look really great too!

  2. Colours are great - really like your choice of fabric. Must get onto sorting my fabric and starting!

  3. To Q... take a look at the tutorial 'Tips for Accurate' piecing on my blog www.SewHappy.Me. It should help you with those pointy bits.

  4. Your blocks look great and like Q says... so perfect. Can't wait to see your first quilt block complete.

  5. They look wonderful! I don't know whether I am going to order hanky linen to try it our just go with something else. I need to decide soon!

  6. Made a start on mine yayyyyyyyy!!!!!
    shame i can't get the Lecien fabrics over here :(
