Another block and a new project

I made another block for the Sew Kid at Heart Quilting Bee. This block is for Adrienne (aka Arnden's Space). She's making a quilt for her next little one. I love how bright the fabrics she sent are!

Sew Kid at Heart block for Adrienne

I used a paper piecing pattern called Hawaii. It seemed perfect since I wanted to do a star-type block and I've had a bit of a Hawaii obsession lately... I just really want to go! The "Quilter Cache" site is an awesome resource and you can even search for patterns by the size of the finished block, which is great for bees.

I'll probably make a second block, but first I have to figure out something else fun for these great fabrics!


Jon and I are planning a new project to make together. It's going to be a baby quilt for his sister. She's expecting a girl!

New Project

We're going to use the Alexander Henry 2D Zoo for the backing and the appliques from the book on the top. The plan is to do something that has a hint of pink, but is just generally bright and fun!


  1. I am in love with that block! The pattern and fabric work very well together.

  2. Love that block! Was the paper piecing easy? I need an easy one to try before I make some special blocks for my sister in-law's birthday.

  3. Kris, I was unable to get into the Halloween swap and am trying to finish up an old Halloween round robin that needs more filler blocks. Could you please email me if you would consider exchanging one of your witches with me?

    I am at and

    Thanks you
