Every Kitchen needs a Radio!

I finally found some time to work on this month's Sew Kitschy paper pieced blocks with Kristy over at Quiet Play.  This cute vintage radio is block number seven out of nine.  I decided to keep track of how long I spent on sewing up this 10" block.  After 4 hours of continual sewing and trimming, I finally had mine completed.  It seems a bit boring but when I quilt this block, I will add some fun detail to it.

 Here is a night time picture of all the completed ones taped to my sewing room wall. (Sorry - but it was really late when I finished!)  The lavender background really clashes a bit with the colors.  But having them displayed keeps me motivated and helps when I am choosing fabrics as I finish future blocks.  Hurray!  Only two more to do!

I can't wait to get this finished up and hung in my new kitchen!

Quiet Play
Kristy over at Quiet Play is hosting this Block of the Month.  You can buy this pattern set along with other great patterns in her Craftsy shop.  
I recently bought her London Calling pattern and have something wonderful planned.  But I have to finish this project first!

Linking up with Anything Goes Mondays at Stitch by Stitch and Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.  I will also be linking up with Kristy at Quiet Play.
