Sneak Peaks and more Progress

Whoo hoo. I realized as I was packing up my Scrappy Christmas Block Swap blocks to go to my partners, that they were 1 inch short. I thought I'd fixed them up, but I guess I didn't. So, I had to seam rip all of them and just have to add 1 more border to each block and then - off and mailing!

But here are the blocks so far:


And here is Aunt Janet's Dresden Plate in the process. The petals are sewn together and I'm appliqueing the center. No idea what color background it's going to go on, but I'm really liking it so far.

And as a possible quilt for the Holiday Quilt Swap - here's one sneaky peaky..

Possible Embellishments?

Or here's a pattern for the other idea I'm debating with:


  1. Your blocks are beautiful. I'm so looking forward to receiving my packages. I do hope my partners like the ones I'll be sending.

  2. the blocks are really cute. I recognized some of those fabrics.

  3. Wow I love those blocks , great fabric !

  4. Love the scrappy blocks and the sneak peaks are very interesting

  5. The scrappy blocks are so adorable!

  6. Hi Jenn,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am one of your partner from the Scrappy Block swap and looking at the pictures you have put up of your blocks on your blog I can't wait to get some from you, they are absolutely gorgeous! I love your baby hands, such a neat idea. My younger one is 6-month today actually so an idea I might borrow in the future. I am French and have been living in the UK for 9 years now!
    I think I will follow your blog now!
