Clue #19 - Ain't No Mountain High Enough

Image
Clue #19 Ain't No Mountain High Enough - This Block is really going to make our Group #7 shine! This is a really fun block to make.  We are making 2 sets of Diamond Triangles and we are going to have 3 Companion Triangles in each unit.  This block uses three fabrics. 

New Block! Son of a Preacher is Block 18

New Block!  Son of a Preacher Man is Block 18! Son of a Preacher Man is a really fun block.  It is made up of two sets of Diamond Triangle Units and 2-Patch Triangle Units.  Can you see him?

Block 17 is My Girl!

Image
 Block 17 is My Girl!  This is such a fun block.  I have an alternative/suggestion on the fabric you use for your Companion Triangle.    So pay close attention.     We will be making My Girl with the remnant fabric from Clue #3.  You will noticed that you have a 4" remnant strip of Light Medium.  You can choose to use that, or go with the Medium Dark of Clue #3 instead.  Your choice.  I went with the remnant.  I think either will look great.  My version of My Girl with the 4" LM remnant strip from Block #3 My Girl is a new block to the series, so I have a few tips below, but we will pair it with Clue #5 Pretty Woman! My A Blooming Bunch version My Peacock Galore version

Time for Block #16!

Wow! We are on Clue #16! We are 2/3rd of the way through, just 8 Clues after today's.  This week, we are putting together Clue #16, Group #4 and 2 more Billboard Blocks. Clue #16 is a repeat of Block #10, Here Comes the Sun, using remnant fabric from Block #9. Then we are grouping it with Block #6, I Got You Babe.  Group 4 - Peacock Galore version Group 4 - A Blooming Bunch My 6 Billboard Blocks

Clue #15! Group 3 and more Billboard Blocks!

  Clue #15!  Group 3 and more Billboard Blocks!  So, I promise, I selected one of our easier blocks to make for Clue #15, since we have so much to do.   We are making 3 more I Want to Hold Your Hand Blocks.  We are going to use different fabric and it will be paired with Stop In the Name of Love Blocks to make Group #3.  And since you will have a few more remnants, let's make 2 more Billboard Blocks.   Here are my Group 3 sets:  Group 3 - A Blooming Bunch Group 3 - Peacock Galore

Stop! In the Name of Love... Clue #8!

Image
Clue # 8 is Stop! In the Name of Love.    One of my top 5 favorite songs of my youth!  Love this song and this block is a lot of fun.  This block is a bit less challenging than the last few.  We will still need to take our time, but we will only be making 3 units, two of them are 2-Patch Units.  We will need to mark some of our seams, but overall this Block should come together pretty easily for you! Stop! In the Name of Love!  Both of the versions together!

Clue #7 is revealed!  Can't Help Falling in Love!  Great song and great block... wait to you see what this block does for our overall design! Clue #7 Can't Help Falling In Love Can't Help Falling in Love, a favorite song of my mothers.  I can't help but smile when I hear this song.  My sisters and I use to sing it often.  Brings back such great memories.   Let's talk Fabric selection: These are my fabric selections of this week's clue.  For Peacock Galore,  I selected the lighter of that one print, the one that is more yellow along with the purple that has all the different color splashes in it.  For A Blooming Bunch, I selected that multi-colored medium scale Light Blue print and then the Orange with the Daisy for my Medium.  Tips - Cutting Make sure you are using the proper size strips.
