Block a Day Calendar: Day 3

Today I want to share even more blocks and quilts taken from my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar CD. One of the 12 quilts patterned is from the Home Circle block. This is an updated vintage block using today's Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Here is the block stitched by Patricia.

I made 5 of the orange blocks using a variety of same color prints. I'm ready to put the border on. All squares and triangles.

Here are some more blocks I made a few years ago using Michael Miller Marble print fabrics. You can revisit my blog post about these blocks HERE. I am finishing up two more blocks for a unique 7 block assembly. Check out the 10 page pattern pdf in my Etsy shop; two quilts!

Just an idea on how to assemble them. They are STILL not put together. I'm thinking, OK?


And here is the digital quilt pattern on the Quilter's Block a Day Calendar CD.

I also designed a quilt for Benartex using their Crazy Daisy fabrics from 2011. It was a free pattern, but you had to SEND a self addressed, stamped envelope to get it!! Wow - that was a LONG time ago. This is a photo from the back cover of a 2011 magazine.


I made Little Houses first using a Benartex Collection called Grandma's House. I made little houses and then added some alternate blocks of both half-square and quarter-square triangles. I also cut out some letters that came with the collection and added those to the top. This was made almost 15 years ago (and that lady is NOT me!)

Here is the block that Patricia made.

I also made a small, 4 block quilt using  Paula Nadelstern collection by Benartex.



And the digital quilt pattern that is included on the Block a Day Calendar CD is 53" x 69", 8" blocks.

So many blocks, so many possibilities. Just to give you an idea of how the CD navigates, check out this pic. You can select blocks alphabetically. You can choose to view and print a 4 page pdf that lists all the blocks and their sizes. You can go right to the quilts (left side link). Click the link below this photo and you will be able to see all 366 blocks as they are listed alphabetically.

Check it out. I still have 5 more quilts to share with you. Hope you'll come back to see them!

  1. Hi Debby! I love both of these blocks that you've shared today. I have been meaning to make a quilt of houses but haven't gotten to it yet. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. A quilt made of houses is perfect in any fabrics and in any size. Traditional and always welcome. Thanks for stopping by!
