Amy's (USA)Blocks for Doris

These were fun blocks to put together. I didn't have many texty prints to pick from, but did have novelty prints. I absolutely love the hedgehog fabric and wish I had more!

I had to share the next few pictures-
my design wall makes me happy! It is full of the hexagons I have been EPPing during my children's practices,Doris' blocks and a few other minis and blocks.

 I am so excited about this house block. My sister and brother-in-law just purchased their first home. I drafted a paper pieced pattern based on the picture and am making it as a housewarming gift to them!

And this bottom picture is very special. It is my 8 year old daughter making her first quilt! She is using charm squares to make a 27 inch square quilt. She is so excited to be sewing! I am just as excited that she wants to learn! :)


  1. Wow Amy, you have been extremely busy. And lucky you having a design wall. Your crosses are nice an bright and I like your green garden fabric

  2. Amy, I love the photo of your daughter, she is so cute! I'm glad you are teaching her to sew and that she wants to learn. What a great way to spend summer days (spoken from a teacher!) The lady bug fabric is wonderful! Looks like you have been busy with lots of other quilting projects too. Enjoy!

  3. Lovely to see your design wall in action Amy! I like the look of all those hexagons.

  4. Wow! Very talented paper piecing pattern :)Thanks for sharing photos of your daugher in action!! I especially love the hedge hog fabric. Great blocks :) Shauna
