First up the appropriately named Snowball block for Hannah in the Siblings Together Quilting Bee
Next up a rainbow block for Sarah in the Fat Stash Brit Bee
I had never tried a stacked coin block before and have to confess that I did have to redo one of the strips as the rainbow coin ended up levitating in mid-air rather than stacking! Aside from that small hiccough it was fun to put together.
My final block, I am ashamed to admit was due in November and whilst holidays and present delivering around the country was part of the reason for the delay it wasn't the entire reason.
Nicky asked the Siblings Together Quilting Bee members to create a block that called for sewing a partial seam. Having never attempted partial seams before I was a bit wary of the block, so procrastinated for quite a while before finally managing to put aside enough time to get my head around joining up half-stitched seams.
Thankfully, it all worked out rather easier than I had anticipated and here is the result.
Please tell me that I am not the only one who was wary of attempting blocks with partial seams :)

I have never heard of a partial seam, let alone sewn one. Loving the stacked coin block, Fiona, both the colours and the way it's precariously balanced.ReplyDelete
Those are all pretty blocks - the stacked one reminds me of a Jenga game :D I've done partial seams before - I stress out about them but then generally don't have problems, so apparently I just like to stress :DReplyDelete
I have never attempted a partial seam if anything like a Y seam no way would I manage it! These blocks are looking goodReplyDelete
Love the stacked coins. Well done on the partial, they are easier with a longer block!ReplyDelete
I dreaded partial seams but when I did them they weren't so bad, but they do take extra time. All of the blocks are beautiful! Merry Christmas Fiona, enjoy your time with your family!!ReplyDelete
All lovely blocks, Fiona, as usual! I think you did partial seams for my blocks back in July :)ReplyDelete
I rather like that block for Nicky. All your blocks are lovely and anyone would be lucky to receive them! Thanks for linking up to Building Blocks Tuesday.ReplyDelete
These all look great! I love the one with partial seams :)ReplyDelete
Hey, I really like that stacked strips block. I had the same experience with partial seams, too. They intimidated me so much, I put off the item that had them for the longest time. And then they weren't as bad as I'd anticipated. :)ReplyDelete
