My Blocks for February

I have been in Houston babysitting my grandsons for the past week, so, while I had fabric and sewing machine and got some blocks made I didn't have a camera. But now I'm back in frozen Oklahoma, land of the ice coated trees. The first block I did is an example of what not to not make 2 rows of words on a single 6" tall block! I may separate the words and join them into one long block, but the letters are a bit under 3" tall....we'll see!BTW, this term of endearment came straight from my state song, OKLAHOMA!

After that I did 3 more blocks, 3 different font styles. I had a lot of fun doing these. I can see using this technique to do a short nursery rhyme or poem for a baby quilt....
I don't know if I will get anymore blocks done this month. After being away a week I have a lot of catching up to do at home. Mail, bills, taxes....and when the snow melts we have to start working on a garden site.


  1. Wow! I love them all ... even honey lamb.

  2. Your letters are so perfect! What technique did you use to draft, plan, sew?

  3. Beautiful. How did you get your letters sew "perfect"?
