Here are my courthouse steps blocks that I made for the
if you haven't joined up yet!
Grab your Quilty Fun book and turn to page 90...
and let's get started on week 3!
I've been looking forward to week 3 because I
LOVE me some courthouse steps blocks…
And I LOVE Rachel who happens to be hosting this week!
to go see her cute blocks,
download the companion PDF,
and to see the prizes for this week!
The reason that I love the
courthouse steps block
(besides being so cute)
is because it goes together so easily...
And it's a perfect opportunity to use up some
2 1/2"squares and 1 1/2" strips from my quilty stash:)
Do you remember
where I showed you how I organize and keep my scrappy stash?
I also showed you that I was making
courthouse steps blocks for my current
Leaders and Enders project.
I've still been making them...
and I have quite a pile now.
I just counted this morning and I have 78 so far:)
Aren't they cute?
78 may seem like a lot but I am going to be making
a BIG quilt.
"A snuggle up with the whole family while
watching a movie in the family room size quilt"
I've also cut a few 1 1/2" squares here and there from leftovers…
And added them to my vintage muffin tin that I keep next to my machine.
I'm going to use them as the cornerstones
when I sew the blocks together.
I will use a white or a light background for the sashings.
I promise you will have fun making the courthouse steps block!
You just need to make 2 for the
Quilty Fun Sampler ...
But I'm telling you…
they are addicting!!!
And you just might end up sewing
about a bajillion of them like I am:)
Have a quilty kind of day
and Sew it like you mean it!
