Park Bench BOM

I received the second installment of the Park Bench (by Jaybird Quilts) BOM. The Hex N More and Side Kick rulers make this project a snap to fit together. Here are the blocks from this month's installment.

The fabric collection is Botanics. I really love the colors. Here are the four blocks I have completed so far.
This is going to make a sweet little quilt.

I have also started working on the Star Surround quilt. This was a quilt-along project last year from Melissa @ Happy Quilting. I am behind the rest of the western world, but I just have to get some things finished before I allow myself to start something else.

Here are the HST's for the center star. I have all 16 sets sewn and arranged on a small design board.
My fabrics are all cut and organized. I started sewing the Flying Geese for the surround portion today, but I got bored. I'll get back to it another day.

University is closed today as well as all of the schools in the area. We have had sleet, followed by more snow than I have seen in all the time I have been in Kentucky. Driving is treacherous so I am hunkered down at home. As long as we don't lose power all will be well. I have my fingers crossed.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love the Botanic Hexie blocks - will be a beautiful quilt. Oh, be safe with this storm.

  2. Great PB blocks. And I like the colours in the stars, too.

  3. I'm crossing fingers, too - ;)) Great blocks!! - ;))
