Jazz Hands

Thank you all for your kind comments about my 

Jazz Hands EPP blocks!

I am slowly working on these...

Five down, seven to go!

Each block has 72 kite pieces in each 12" (point-to-

point) block, so it is quite slow going!

I have been toying with some ideas about how I 

might join the blocks?

The MO2 book, which I am basing my quilt on, has 
two options.....

a long strip....

or a diamond?

And I have also 'pinned' a triangular version...

I purchased a piece of Kaffe as a possible fabric 


I'd love to hear your thoughts on fabric and setting....

In the meantime, I have another set cut out ready to 


Now I just need some more papers!

Happy Sewing!



  1. They look wonderful, and I vote for triangles!

  2. I"m loving these! Your fabrics are so nice and cheerful. From just what I see here, it looks like the triangles would nicely repeat the shape.

  3. I agree with Susan...they look fantastic and I vote triangles!

  4. These are spectacular, my favourite layout is with the diamonds.

  5. These are looking so great! I vote for the triangle layout! ;)

  6. Always the contrarian, I'm voting for the strips. But honestly, anything will look great with blocks that awesome. They are so happy and just POP!

  7. That's a tough decision, I like them both! Your quilt will look wonderful either way you choose! Can't wait to see it finished!

  8. Looks great!!! I think triangles. Less background fabric in one shot, keeps the focus on the Jazz hands.

  9. I like the triangle because they also look like star points though any layout you choose will work because those blocks are stunning!! Gorgeous fabric choices, the yellow used in different parts really pops!

  10. Your blocks are looking gorgeous! I've always loved the quilts in the Material Obsession book but I think the triangles version will be amazing! The triangles will end up making big star points won't they? But whatever you choose it will be fantastic!

  11. These are fabulous! I like that diamonds or triangles. Can't wait to see it finished.

  12. The triangles jump out at me! I like the triangles. My second choice would be the strips. They look wonderful :)

  13. It's going to be wonderful Suz.
    I like the triangles maybe?

  14. What fabulous blocks, they are so fresh and fun, I love them. I vote for the diamonds or triangles.

  15. I think I am feeling the triangle love xxx

  16. I quite like the long strip! It's great to see you're making so much progress. A pain to have to wait for more papers =D

  17. both are great but I kind of like the diamonds....awesome you for tackling these blocks - yikes!

  18. This is going to be wonderful. I like the strips or the triangles, but all of the choices are lovely.

  19. For me the diamonds are very striking! Looks great nearly there eh!

  20. Hmmmm... Tough choice and if this was a vote i would loose but I like the strips best. The Kaffe Fasset is perfect. Love it :)

  21. I love the way your "Almost a Rainbow" turned out! Would you tell me what the complete title of the book MO2 is, please. I have become a "hexie junkie" and would love to try this pattern, too. Thank you.
