Sugar Block Club Fun

More FPP for this month's Sugar Block Club BOM.  hmm.  I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it after I nearly lopped my finger off with my rotary cutter doing Feb.'s FPP block.

But this one went together so easily!  I may become a fan of FPP yet.

Never have I had such success with matching points.  They aren't perfect still, but as close as I've ever gotten to it. :)

I was getting really tired of the yellow background that I chose at the start, and there wasn't any yellow in either of these Summer Song prints anyway, so I used some of the leftover dots that I used for the background of Swoon, and again for the half diamonds in the Rainy Days quilt top. Light green dots are showing up in everything lately. I'm even thinking they might make a good backing for the Rainy Days top.

Which one of these is not like the others? ;) It might stand out but I'm so sick of yellow right now. I really like how it turned out. Now I wish I'd used the dots on all of them.

The colors seem more crisp against the white, but oh and learn.

Other than that, Lolita the Owl (had to rename her, as she needed a name that went along with her sassiness, and Olive isn't a very sassy name) is finally done and is going to go to a sweet little one year old girl tomorrow.  Can't wait to share her during the blog hop, but until then, here's another sneaky peek. :)

I don't want to give too much away!

Have also been designing things for Beth's market booth.  Things like a display ladder made from pvc pipes that can be taken apart and travel there easily. Posters to hang in the booth, and buttons to be passed out, and blog cards. Here are the ones I did for Beth, they were really easy to do over at Vistaprint. If she has any leftover from market, she can pass them out at lectures and classes.

Been having fun with all kinds of quilty AND non-quilty creativity. :)

Hope you're all having a great weekend. Buster is taking it easy this weekend.. and kind of giving me the stink-eye for interrupting his nap.

I really really like your April Sugar Block! Working on mine as I type this. You and Beth are going to have a BLAST at Market!

Claire said...

I love your new block! Perhaps you could do a few more with the same back ground fabric to even it up a bit. Good job!

Love the fpp blocks! They are so neat! Sounds like a great technique.

Those ffp blocks look great and agree with Claire. You are a big tease concerning Lolita!

Your blocks are beautiful!! We all need a little variety in life.

Phew, glad no more blood was shed in the making of that block ;o) Split the BOM backgrounds between the two and you're sorted!

Mean mama, poor Buster, he has such a hard life he *needs* that nap...

Hilachas said...

Wow, you have so much going on that I don't know what to comment on first so i'll just say that everything you're doing is lovely, Kelli. You've been so productive.

Your BOM blocks ate very pretty! I think they will look good altogether in a quilt with both backgrounds.

Love all the blocks! Yes that green dot makes a fabulous background. And jeez....not much a peek there! LOL..........

Gorgeous and lovely - looks perfect to me :)

Thanks for linking up!

I must admit I like the polka dots better too. The yellow is alright but the polka dot does a polka.

Jaime said...

Love the new block. The colors really do pop! Keep up the great work.

Just scrap up all the backgrounds from here on, and they will all work together. Love your blocks so far.

Lynette said...

pretty! Yeah - I like the dots background added into the mix. A few more with that and it'll be nicely balanced and provide interest to have the yellow backgrounds mixed in. :D

I like the light background on your new block also. It is a beautiful block! Lots of eye candy... and I can't wait to see more of that picture!

I love the Sugar Block Club block, so crispy looking. Great job on the Vista print cards too.

Sis-O said...

Sorry about your finger. I love your swoon quilt and the sugar blocks are beautiful. I know we get sick of looking at our work sometimes.

Dree said...

What a great block! I've never seen this block design before.

Renee said...

Your block turned out great! I think as long as a few future blocks also use white your quilt will still look cohesive.

Kelli said...

Your Sugar block looks great! I've made that block before too, but with different color placement and it looks so different. Funny how something as simple as where you put what can give you a completely different outcome.
Glad the FPP went better and your digits were safe!
