Free Block of the Month Wall Quilt - Block 3

It's time to give you the next block in the free Block of the Month Wall Quilt



This is my take on 'the little black dress'.


"So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you." I hope you are enjoying these blocks each month.

 Block 3 is available in my Craftsy Store here.


I've had a couple of good weeks after a health scare for the first two months of the year. Thankfully medication has sorted out my problems and I'm feeling back to normal. It's amazing how quickly you bounce back once all the tests show that there is nothing seriously wrong! 

Hubby was really getting worried when he came to empty the scrap bin in my sewing room each week and there was nothing much in it!  He will be happy this week because it is full and overflowing. 

I have completed all the Arbor Window blocks for my pool table quilt and here are some of them sorted into their rows:


I love the way the black background makes the colours pop. I have now started putting them together with my favourite QAYG technique. The more I make quilts using this method, the more I am becoming hooked. I find it makes everything just so much easier for me.

Of course, I must have some hand-stitching to do at night and the little bit of QAYG stitching doesn't take long, so I have started a new design!!! There's nothing like the thrill of a new project!

Happy stitching!

Oh goodness, block 3 already! I just got to working on block 2 yesterday, I used some lovely felt for the bag - hope to blog about it later this week when I finish the stitching and then I'll be able to move onto block 3. GLad your tests came back clear and love the blocks!
