Time is going quickly - as always - but I am still making time for my BAD (block-a-day) blocks. Here are the latest:
BAD 8 - Small and Simple Star. This block is from the first block in A Quilting Life's free block-of-the-month:
BAD 9 - January's Quilting Life. The previous BAD 8 block gets a scrapilicious border to turn it into the first block in A Quilting Life's sew-along.

BAD 10 - A two-piece heart - also from Carol Doak's paper-piecing book. Sometimes I have very little time to sew and this little 3" block was just the thing on one such day.

BAD 11 - Birdhouse no. 1. Today's block is also from Carol Doak's paper-piecing book. It also measures just 3". Another sweet little make.

BAD 12 - Riley Blake block 2 middle. A new year always brings a plethora of new sew-alongs and Riley Blake are hosting a free 'Challenge' sew along. The blocks are just a little bigger than I need so I created this 6" block using just the middle of their block 2.

BAD 13 - Sunrise - another Carol Doak's paper-piecing block - taking just a tad more time than the earlier two this week.

BAD 14 - A Birdhouse at Home. The Simple Star block from my One Block Mug Rugs pattern book is the setting for BAD block 11. Looking right at home amongst the florals.
