I love my Library!

And I LOVE this block!

It is from this book.....

which I borrowed from my local library!

The block came together SO easily!

It starts with five 2 and a half inch strips....

Joined and then folded in half lengthways.

Using my new 60 degree ruler, diamond shapes were cut!

Isn't it pretty?

I played around with the layout but this is what I ended up with!

There are even useable pieces leftover.

Now how will I use these?


or, striped into a row!

This is definitely the beginnings of my new quilt!

I love it!

I'm off to make some more!!

Happy sewing!



  1. They're beautiful Suz!!! Yes, this is a book I'll be pulling off the shelf this year to play with!!

  2. Fabulous. I have to get a 60 degree ruler. You are so clever with your fabric choices.

  3. Wowza Suz!!! I can't wait to get my hands on that book!!! This block is fabulous and your fabric choices are fabulous! I love the way you used the striped fabric - gives it lots of movement!!! I had to look twice to be sure I was on the right blog! Love the new look :)

  4. Very clever! gee, I don't own a 60 deg ruler (must be the only thing I DON'T HAVE!!)... so now I have to get one and make this block... love it!

    The new Header looks fantastic!

    Have a great day sewing!

  5. Great fabric choices, very nice indeed!!

  6. This is a very good reminder to use the local library. Thank you.
