some quilt blocks and a quick project

punctuation quilt blocks
Just because I had to start another project.... I got a Punctuation/American Jane jellyroll a couple weeks ago and saw a quilt made from these blocks and haven't been able to get them out of my mind. They go together so fast! I made 10 of these in less than an hour this morning. Each block is just three 2.5" squares and 2 strips that are 6.5" x 2.5". I love the tickets.

Also I did this yesterday:
ribbon hem capris
These thrift store jeans were too long and too flared so I cut them off and hemmed them with ribbon. It only took about 20 minutes to sew the ribbon on. Do you want me to make a tutorial for how to do this?

I finally got some fusible stuff and eyelets/grommets so I can make the ABC book from Moda Bake Shop. I have the letters and batting cut, I'm ready to go!

Nice job on the jeans, and I like the blocks also.

Hope y'all survived all the stormy weather last night. Heard it got kinda wild. Love what you did with the jeans. I'm not much for the boot cut or flared legs. Give me straight legs...
