A couple of quilt blocks

And through all the excitement of this week, quilt blocks still need to be made.  One I think is OK to show on the front page of this blog and the other is not.  This one was made for my very special friend Krista Poppyprint, in our Stash Trad Bee where we make traditional blocks from our stash.  I'm going to show you mine first and then everyone else's because they're so cute.  In turn the rest were made by Amy During Quiet TimeTiffany A Fabric Affair, Kerry VeryKerry Berry, Krista Poppyprint, Ayumi Pink Penguin, Corey Little Miss Shabby, Gayle Brindley and Angela Cuttopieces.

The other block I made was in response to a request from Chawne who is making a whole quilt of blocks with just one rude word on them.  Dan and I have made a block each and no doubt more will be appearing around blogland, tweetland, facebookland, flickrland and whatever other quilting lands there are out there.  But the word on the blocks is rude so I would prefer not to show it on the face of the blog as I don't want to offend anyone unintentionally.  However, if you would like to see these two blocks, leave a comment on this post answering this simple quilting question and I will send you the link.  I am posing a question that I am hoping random passers or curious children by won't know the answer to so I don't inadvertently give them the link.  What out-of-print fabric line by a big name fabric and quilt designer is coming back early next year, eagerly awaited by 99% of the modern quilting community?  Leave your email address in the comment if it is not linked to your blogger profile.

  4. Love those trees! I'm the world's worst fabric collector though, I have no idea who's coming back. Denise Schmidt seems to get reprints quite often though (or I just see people rave quite often about her!)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Oh my goodness people! Denyse Schmidt's best line ever is coming back!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love the clean blocks - I'm guessing it is DS but have no clue really - which rude word did you use!?? And did you have to illustrate it??

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ye olde flea Market fancy. I wanna see!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yay for FMF! I've already seen your smut block on Twitter...Jess pointed it out to me the other day! There was much giggling in this household :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Luckily the people before said FMF is coming back because I had no clue. LOL I was banking on the fact that you knew me and knew I wasn't some random kid hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  13. I had no idea either (not a dedicated follower of fashion and all that)... but on the bandwagon and being able to read those above...I'll go with FMF :o)

    Crazy excited about rude words and quilting(!)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Really nice trees. I didn't know about FMF but I'm off to learn about it now.

    ReplyDelete
  15. FMF is coming back with some edits! I'd love to see the "rude" blocks. The trees are so very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love the tree blocks. Can you tell me the name of the pattern or where I may purchase it. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wonderful blocks. Simply lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Good thing other posters knew the answer, because I was clueless. FMF by DS.
    Love to see the rude blocks.
    And I love the tree blocks you posted today...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I 'think' it's FMF, but not sure. I'd like the link, as I'm making a rather odd word quilt at the moment as a gift!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks like a lot of us want to see "rude quilt blocks" Can't wait to get some FMF for myself :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Flea Market Fancy??? Please send me a link!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Flea Market Fancy! I have heard about this and hoping I can get my hands on some. I am new to quilting and wasn't in the loop the first time it came around. I love this line!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ok, I might be taking this one a little personally...is there a reason you skipped my pine tree block?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lovely blocks - just yummy and such perfect points! I saw that rude word somewhere (flickr?) and was quite shocked - thanks for the explaination!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I thought it might be Denyse Schmidt and in reading others comments, I can see I was right! I love her designs. Really want to know what the rude word is ~ teehee.

    ReplyDelete
  26. please please let me see! It sounds like a quilt I'll want to make :-) the fabric is FMF and I know folk who have orders in already... lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. These comments are pretty fun. I would love to see your block, and I am one of those waiting to order the FMF.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am making a block for Chawne too which is oh so fun! I would love to see yours and I can't wait to get my hands on some flea market fancy either! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. DS Flea Market Fancy.
    Your block and all the others look perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those tree blocks are beautiful! They include so many fun fabrics.

    Curiosity always kills this cat but I don't know designers and fabrics well enough to answer your question. Some say Denyse Schmidts and some say Flea Market Fancy, so I'll say one of those. Am I right?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Denise S (I can NEVER remember how to spell her last name so I won't even try) Flea Market Fancy!

    BTW, I can't wait for it.. I love some of the prints and glad I wasn't paying a king's ransom for charm squares.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Flea Market Fancy, send the link please I need a bit of cheer up and a giggle

    ReplyDelete
  33. The quilt with all the trees will be wonderful!

    FMF - so curious :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love your groups blocks (that you can show) - I bet the others are 'interesting' - sorry I can't help with the fabric

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love that so many people don't pay attention to the fabric fashion machine.
    The tree's look great. So clever to use stripes for all the central triangles.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great blocks! FMF is coming back!

    ReplyDelete
  37. That would be Flea Market Fancy and I want some in my little fat fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Flea Market Fancy, can't wait. This is what I say about people being upset about language, It's only words, people. Just words!

    ReplyDelete
  39. ooooh how intriguing!!! I'd love to see the smut! I also love the cross stitch that's done in fancy old fashioned script but a whole load of rude words.

    Did it give you some street cred with your teenagers?

    Love the blocks too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Flea Market Fancy! (Yay I actually knew the answer to a fabric line question). My mind is currently working overtime trying to guess the word... Think my email is linked but just in case it itsn't - jane (at) ricketts68 dot plus dot com.

  51. FMF of course! I can't refuse a chance to snigger at a rude word.
    Btw, I had to delete my first comment as auto correct changed 'snigger' to 'sniffer'.
    Just didn't look right.

    ReplyDelete
  52. You gotta stop asking such difficult questions! I'll be breaking my brain over that all week now! lol!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. FMF??? that's the best thing I've heard all day yay!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Judging by all the comments I'm guessing that it's FMF! If I'm wrong please still send the link as if Archie a accidentally opens the link it'll be ok as he can't read rude words *wink*

    ReplyDelete
  63. I thought everyone would know this- flea market fancy with fancy new colours and all

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Could it be Flea Market Fancy :) love those tree blocks too :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. You haven't thought this through. No child or passer-by (and seemingly a lot of your followers) won't know the answer to this question, but any dunderhead can click on comments and get the answer and have access to your naughty word. I imagine hoards of children and passers-by are now very shocked.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I don't know about you, but I think I need a trip to the flea market for some fancies. =)
    BEAUTIFUL BLOCKS
