More Craftster Blocks

I've kept busy making blocks for my new Craftster swap pals! Here are the latest:

For Jenicat:

The pattern is the one for the second month of the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery Block of the month. It's called "Star Struck".

For klum78:

I picked this pattern, called "Indian's Mats", off of because I thought it looked like Christmas ornaments.

Another block for Jenicat:

You might recognize this pattern as the first pattern from the aforementioned Designer Mystery Block of the Month. It's called "Cross Stitch".

For whoopdedoo_5:

Another "Cross Stitch" block. The muted colors didn't photograph too well, but it looks much better in person!

For audrey1999:

I used Jacquie's tutorial for this one. My first ever wonky log cabin! I really like how it came out, and I think I'll be making more.

For fishie:

This one's called "Box Quilt" and it's also from Quilter's Cache.

For CaroDIYnamite:

Another Quilter's Cache block. This one's called "Mother's Dream".

For glittergirl94:

Another "Mother's Dream".

For 1b1g1k2:

There's that "Cross Stitch" block again! Can you tell that I like it? : )

Another block for whoopdedoo_5:

For ritapizza:

This one's the "Flying Dutchman Variation" from Quilter's Cache.

A third block for Jenicat:

And here is a sampling of the blocks that have been made for me so far:

(Fabrics are Midwest Modern from Amy Butler, but they don't seem to photograph too well. The blocks are GORGEOUS in person! Everyone is doing such great work in this swap!)


  1. Wow! You have been a busy guy! They all look great! It is neat to see all the different fabric selections. It is cool that you are learning so much in the process, I like the different block patterns that you have been seeking out. Im sure it is interesting to work with fabrics that you would probably never select for yourself. The paper pieced blocks you have been receiving are awesome!

    How is your QAL quilt coming? Or did it get forgotten in the Block Swap frenzy? ;) I look forward to seeing that one too!

  2. Holy moly and I thought I was busy!!? You go JOHN! Great blocks and I can't wait to see what you make with the ones your received!

  3. geez john you are making the rest of us look bad! you are so prolific! how long did you work on all those?? please tell me you didnt do them in a weekend!!
    all your blocks are awesome, as are the ones you are receiving! great swap

  4. Busy, busy, busy. Do you want to come over here and work on some of my UFO's?
