Sew Kitschy August Block

Ah yes, another weekend with lots of time spent in my sewing room.  And just what did I accomplish?


A single 10" block!

Yep, all those hours went into completing this month's Sew Kitschy block.  I wouldn't say it was difficult (although I did have to re-do a piece or two due to wrong fabric placement).  It was just time consuming sewing up all those tiny pieces.


This completes block number eight.  All that is left is the center square - which I am sure I will need to start as soon as the pattern is available to complete it on time.

The blocks are all hanging in my sewing room so I have been thinking quite a bit lately about how I want to finish it off.  I can't wait to get it finished so I can hang it in my kitchen.

You can check out what others have done with their blocks on Quiet Play's blog here.  Not quite as many people sewing along but there are still some really pretty blocks being made.

These blocks are wonderful! They make me smile.

Lynda said...

such patience to paper piece these blocks - when I see the word kitschy I immediately think gingham - have you thought about incorporating gingham in your setting?

These are so cute. Great color palette you've chosen.

I like your block the best of the ones I've seen, maybe because i love your color palette. I especially like the stripes.

Those blocks are looking great! I love the color scheme you chose, too. I remember how each block got trickier as we got farther along in the And Sew On BoM. Can't wait to see the September block!

I absolutely adore this BOM theme, but didn't have time for another BOM in my life... maybe one day though!

I love the pattern and your blocks! So well done :)

These blocks look great. I think they would look excellent displayed individually around the kitchen, but that's just me.

What paper-pieced beauties! What are your plans for them when you have a complete set?
