Block-a-Day and another scrappy collection

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 9 - A Quilting Life's SAL Block One

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 13 - Sunrise - lucky for some

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.

Don't forget - the Patchwork Corners mug rug pattern is on special offer only until the end of this month - so pick up a copy now by clicking on the photo/links below.
In the meantime you can see all the blocks on my Pinterest 2022 BAD board or follow along on Instagram @thepatchsmith.

Until next time …..
