Sew Sweet Simplicity – Block #3

BB3 (2)

I just completed BOM #3 in Jacquelynne Steves’ Sew Sweet Simplicity series.

I’m using vintage bluebird patterns to embroider the center block for these 12-inch finished blocks.  I’m using coordinating scraps for the block itself but each one will be a little bit different.

The blocks will be turned into some kind of project for the kitchen.  The block is not difficult to piece, yet gives some very pretty results.

  1. Love this header, too. That is the prettiest block so far. I love the fabrics and the stitchery and how they go together. What a wonderful something for the kitchen this will be!

  2. I am truly enjoying watching this each post. In fact, it reminds me of when I would visit Nana and she would show me her progress on a particular quilt or afghan or something else she was sewing…………thanks for that – I look forward to the next post!

  3. Lillian…this is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing the link. This is going to be my next blocks and make them as a table runner… :0) mari
