Bonus Block #2

I totally forgot about the bonus block this month.  It has been a challenging month, the details of which are a bit too personal to share online, but I think things are looking up now (knock on wood!).   So hopefully, I will be sewing more, posting more and forgetting less.  :)

If you would like to make an extra block this week, here are some ideas:

You could make a wave runner block using Victoria's tutorial.

Improv. Blocks
Or blocks like this using the Mod Mosaic Floor Pillow tutorial from Oh, Fransson!  With both tutorials remember that your blocks will need to be 12.5 inches square if you want to use them with the other blocks in this sampler.

For a more traditional bonus block, you could make the Green Mountain Star block.  It has quarter square triangles, flying geese and corner to corner sewing.  Wow!  Great review block and sooo pretty.  Thanks to Em for sharing this block.

If you make any of these blocks in any size leave a comment on the giveaway post for an extra chance to win.  Happy sewing!


  1. Hi,
    I got my bonus block finished and enjoyed the chance to make it ala "mad mosaic floor pillow". I was surprised how much time it took to make just the one block!! Back and forth to the sewing machine, ironing board, cutting board - and although it was only 12 1/2 ", it seemed to take a lot of background fabric, although only an inch at a time. My block will be posted once I get my camera batteries re-charged
