365 Block Challenge - Jan. 8-14

Second set of 7 down; 351 to go.  Evidently we are swallowing an elephant nine square inches per bite.
Doing these baby blocks reminds me of when I realized there were too many quilts calling to be done in this one lifetime.  The secret surely was to do them all in miniature!

Um, no.  Raise your hand if you know why.  Anyone?

There's an inverse relationship between time and block size, similar to a golf handicap.  Except with quilt piecing time, there's an exponent in there somewhere too.

It's not too late to slide down this 365 Blocks rabbit hole* with me -- wheeee!

Or sit back and relax while clicking on over to these link-ups for today:  Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  There is a lot of eye candy over at both these blogs today.  Come see!

*Credit for that accurate analogy goes to another blogger doing this challenge, but I can't remember who!

Thank you for reading my blog.



  1. Oh Kimberly, I am trying so hard NOT to get into that rabbit hole!! LOL!! But these little blocks are calling to me! Good for you for keeping up!

    1. Come and join us on the dark side ... lol ... but in March we'll start with some lighter fabrics. Thanks for commenting.

  2. Your blocks look great! I am working on a scrappy Farmer's Wife so I totally get your comments about the smaller blocks not taking that much less time!

  3. cute as they are, and nice to see finished, the smaller they get the longer they take! Tiny seams really show. Good job though. I like your blog... thanks for joining my circles. To be honest I don't really understand the google plus circles... if you want to explain them to me, my email addy is on the right side of my blog Not Afraid of color.Thanks!
    going to look around a bit now...

    1. I don't get the circles either. I think it may be google's attempt at social media like facebook friends, but doesn't have nearly the capability. I just use blogger and hangouts mostly. Thanks for stopping by, neighbor; I live in western Maryland.
