More Nonsense!

As in BLOCKS named NONSENSE that is!



Aren't these just the cutest things?! They finish at 3"!! And I think I'm addicted, or I could be!

I was puttering around while Lisa's quilt was in the quilting machine, and thought I'd make just ONE to see how they would turn out in this scale, and before I knew it, I had FIVE! Well, five is not enough to make anything, it doesn't use enough scraps, I know I can do better than this so....there will be more to come!

My only dilemma....I was hoping for another block inspiration that would use up more of the CRUMB STUFF that I've got boxes of, but these require strips. It's still putting scraps to good use, so I'm up for it!

Why? I dunno! Just CUZ! Just because I can, because I want to, because they are calling to me. Simple little blocks with a 100 on the Cuteness Scale, don't you agree?

I've tried different variations, and so far I like the one with the contrasting middle square the best. I tried one with all different lights, and it was okay but...just not as cute as those that have a different color for the centers.

It's midnight as I write this, and I'm about to go to bed...but I'm so excited I could easily stay up and piece some more!

Tomorrow is a Sew-day Saturday at Chez Quiltville...Lisa and Karen are coming over to work on projects and the basement will become a NO BOYS ALLOWED zone! I've got turkey soup already made and ready to be reheated in the crockpot for our lunch. Karen is bringing dessert, Lisa is bringing rolls...and we will be ready to ROCK!

Little blocks are usually cute and I really like these! Not sure if I'll make these or some little stars or 9 patches - so many blocks, not enough time.

Oh sooooo cute! I have very little time off between now and Christmas and I was just sitting here thinking about starting RRCB. I was determined not to this time and just work on UFO's.

Then last night I said what the heck, why not??? Now, I want to do this. As Lisa said, so many blocks, so little time......

Charity said...

I'm so glad that I have found your blog. You provide so much inspiration. May you have a wonderful time sewing with friends. I hope to get a little bit of sewing done today, as well. Maybe on a roll,cottonball??

Marcia said...

The blocks are really cute!!! Thanks for sharing! What are the measurements? I would love to make them for my mini comfort quilts. I make Mini Comfort Quilts for friends and family to give with a little message saying a prayer for you.... sell them on my website. How do I make the block? I am sure others would love to know too!!! Thanks! Marcia@craftysewing.com and www.craftysewing.com

Thanks Bonnie and Happy sewing

I like the nonsense blocks and I like the scale too! I might have to try piecing a few of those. Paper pieced or strip pieced though... Hmmmm...

banjo795 said...

I agree, REALLY cute! Are those 1 1/2 strips? I've got LOTs of those to use up!

LizA. said...

Those are SO cute. Did you make up the block or can it be found in EQ? Thanks to you, I too, have an addiction to smaller blocks.....

PNW Kimberly said...

I would love to know where I can find info on making this block! It would make a great small table quilt!

SubeeSews said...

I found the pattern in BlockBase...gosh I really love that program!

In The Woods said...

To back up the other people saying it-- please give us measurements! They are very cute and I would love to make some!

Marj said...

The blocks are really cute. I also have a new ruler gadget to make square in a square with little or no waste. guess I should try it out.

Ned's Place said...

Your little blocks are cute, isn't it fun to sew something just for fun. Just to sit and sew sometimes is great not having to make a quilt or meet a deadline or class . I'm so glad you enjoyed making them just for YOU, please make sure you do it again you are so generous with everything else you do. Don't loose your enjoyment of quilting.

Bonnie, Take care and don't stress. Do it for the enjoyment. I thank you for all your generosity. Blessings to you and your family.
