Sugar Block Club Blocks

I've been busy with a bunch of other projects, so I let the last four months slip by without making the Sugar Block Club block, but now I'm finally all caught up. In case you're not familiar with the Sugar Block Club, it's a BOM run by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock and each month her block is based on a traditional block, but with a modern twist. I always look forward to the new blocks, even when I don't have time to make them in their proper month!

I actually did make January's block back in January and over the past few days I've made the rest.

February's block is a fun variation on a log cabin, which is a block I've always loved. I think a scrappy quilt of these would be a lot of fun. Those HSTs in the corners and the bright pink borders around them would make a great secondary pattern, don't you think?

March's block is my favourite of the bunch so far. It's an orange peel variation, and I love how it looks layered, like that flower block is sitting on top of a star block. This is another block that I'd love to make into a full quilt...maybe one of these days!

April's block is Amy's spin on the Ohio Star block. This one is probably my least favourite so far, though I'm not sure why.

For May, Amy chose the Lone Star block and turned it into this fabulous Morning Star. Don't you love the precision of paper piecing??

Even though there's no deadline or anything with this project, it still feels good to be caught up. I think it's a psychological thing :) I'm also glad to have more blocks done now so I can see that I do really like the addition of the pink into the blue and beige/cream colour scheme I had going already with the blocks from Amy's 2013 Sugar Block Club.

In other news, the first edition of my newsletter, The Bulletin, goes out on Monday morning. Yay! Have you signed up for it yet? If not, you can sign up here.

  1. I made the January block as well, and still need to catch up with the rest of the months! This post has inspired me to get them out and get into action. :) Very nice blocks. :)

  2. I know what you mean about feeling good about being caught up. The morning star block is really lovely, and I can see what you mean about the secondary pattern from the log cabin block. Great colors you are working with!

  3. Getting caught up on a project is the best feeling ever. I love the fabrics you are using for this BOM. I think my favorite of the four is the first one. The log cabin variation. Can't wait to see how they all come together.

  4. My favorite is the orange peel block. It does look like a flower block sitting on a star block...so pretty!

  5. These blocks are so pretty! I have been thinking about making another sampler just so I could quilt it.
