Stitch-A-Long, Jelly Roll Block, Love is

I have joined the Gardeners Journal Stitch-A-L0ng. I have had the book and the materials for several years and when I came across the site by chance a while ago, I decided it might be a way of getting this started. Due to my kitchen, I am running a little late so have only completed my first block this week (should have been done by end of April). Lots of little pieces to cut out which was time consuming but as I have now done this, construction of the later blocks should not take so long.
Block 9 of Love is......

Here are two photos of my next block for the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along. With this block, we had to make the two and a half inch centre square a feature. I found this little bird lurking on one of my strips so thought he would enjoy being the centre of attention. I think he looks quite at home, don't you?

I love doing these blocks. The fabric is Blush by Basic Grey.
Well, must go, till next time, take care........


  1. What nice cheery fellows you have on the blog. To have had the book and material for awhile, you must be excited about starting on your quilt. You have so many other lovely things in the melting pot as well. Enjoyed your posts.

  2. Well done Noela, it is good to catch up. The bird does look very cute.


  3. Your GJ block is Lovely & I Soo Love that little Bird in your Block...
