Scraptastic Blocks


Hi dear friends! Is it again time for Scraptastic Tuesday, relly? Yes it is, so lets see some scrappynes!

Now when the Puppy and Girl quilt top is down from this extra design wall I could put there ‘The Honey Pot Bee’ blocks and few others.

starry sky block

Starry sky block is the latest I made just yesterday evening. It’s one of my very favourites even first I wasn’t sure what fabrics/colours I should pick. I’m very happy with the low volume squares but also with the white. This block is by ‘A Persevering Mom’, like is also the bowl of ice cream. That’s for sure my other very favourite!

The bowl with ice cream is the 1. block for the ‘Sweet Treats QAL’ by ‘A Persevering Mom’. There are at least two more blocks already but I didn’t have time to make them yet.

One other block that is not part of ‘The Honey Pot Bee’ is my Flying Kite block.

I had made a while ago that small one with english paper piecing using diamonds and squares. It was just trying something and for fun and that’s why I hadn’t plan well how to do the outside pieces. The big one is made with normal piecing using diamonds and triangles. Have to say that it looks easier than it is because the points where hard to match. Now I have drawn also foundation paper piecing patternfor this. I would like to share that but don’t know how to make that printable to share it here.

Here you can see the general idea how I made the big Flying Kite block. If you are interested I’m happy to share the measurements. And now I send you warm sunshine!

Days are much longer and now I can see the sunset. In winter it sets behind some buildings. Yesterday’s colours were awesome!


I try to eat more colourful!


I try to look more carefully!

for fun

I try to see more creatively!

And now I try to manage with four big puppies! We are again many here and there will be lots of playing, some home schooling and hopefully some sleeping too! This photo is from earlier visit. Lets see if I manage this time to get photo from all four together!



Here is the link to ‘Molli Sparkles’ and  ‘The Honey Pot Bee’. At Molli’s blog you can look the drop down page for ‘The Honey Pot Bee’ and there you find the blocks by month and other info for this bee.

  1. You get more done than 10 of me, and with 4 puppies to home school. 😍 The flying kite block is awesome, so full of energy it looks like it’s ready to just sail off. The elongated triangles in stary sky is my favorite though. How you get everything to fit so percisely –not the slightest pucker anywhere–is beyond me. It looks like you press your seams open. Hugs from the zoo.


    • Thank you so much Sonja!I used to press all the seams open. With paper piecing that can’t be done of course. Now lately I have pressed also for the one side (it’s quicker and perhaps stronger). But when there are many layers of fabric like when connecting the paper pieced sections, I still press open. And I do press almost every scrap before continue. That’s the quilter’s exercise to get up to press.Hugs from the other zoo! x Teje


  2. They all look so much fun! Love the flying kite block. Could you load the template onto google doc and add a link to it on yur blog?? I’m sure many people would love the pattern. Thank you for linking up to #scraptastictuesday


    • Thank you Nicky! I don’t have photoshop or something like that so the template is just drawn by hand. Would be nice to learn if there is any free program to do this. Thank you for the party! x Teje
