    I'm sorry you feel that way. I think it turned out really cute. I like doing them when I just need to unwind and do some nonthinking sewing. Elaine

    That is really cute. I have some kitty ballerina embroidered squares that I want to make into a quilt and had been pondering how to do it. This has given me a great idea!

    Not a fan? But it's so cute! I especially love the embroidered center. You could always send it to me!

    I like the way it turned out but I guess I over think the blocks. Plus there was a lot of back and forth to the iron. Even though it is only two feet it bugged me. I am glad I have it done though.

    You need a swivel chair, and an ironing board or table right beside you. Then you would like these blocks better!

    That's what I have done.
    Have my ironing board at the height so I don't have to get up, I just turn around and roll over to it and roll back to machine. Much nicer! :)

    I have a plan for a mini iron table that is the right height, but now I just have the big one that is too high for the chair travel. I might try again then.

    Turned out nice -

    I overthink my "scrappy" stuff, too. Turns out nice, but - - - it is WAY easier for me to do something that is not scrappy.

    I need to re-arrange my space to have the ironing board closer to the sewing machine!

    I like the way your blocks look! :lol:

    Very cute, I like it! I can see where the ironing could get annoying though.

    I love the look, but I can see where it would get tedious. The embroidery in the center is perfect!

    kwhite - you and I are alike in that I spend WAY too much time trying to "plan" scrappy. I did come across a quote recently that describes me and possibly you too - "Paralysis by analysis"

    You got it. Maybe the kitty should have been grey stripe with little horns!!!!

    Close up of the center.

    :lol: And perhaps a tree lying on its side in the background! :lol:

    Wonderful block, K. I love the embroidery and I particulary like the block you set it in. You called it a crumb method? I know it as crazy quilt block. Anyway. Beautiful.

    How do you make crumb blocks? Do you just keep sewing pieces together until you have enough to square up to a block size? Do you sew over a muslin foundation or some other stabilizer? Curious about it.

    Yes, you're right about the piecing. I did mine on muslin, then squared it up.
