It Friday ………..Cute Fussy Squares

I continue to develop my fussy square paper pieced blocks  for a swap hosted by the lovely Amanda at What the Bobbin!

Swap 4r

I love this little car!!  I love it even more because it references Melbourne in the advertisment which will be a nice reminder that it came from Australia.


A cute reminder of Paris.  My daughter has her eye on this one!  I think I will be making more.


A little vintage print of an umbrella and flowers for a special person.


Sharing the love!

    • Thank you so much for you kind comments Melissa. Amazing how we create illusions and don’t realize it. I picked it for the kissing birds but the surrounding fabric changes the impact.

  1. Oh I really like your fussy cut squares – very cute – I see two birds lol –

    • Thanks so much Jan for your kind comments. Glad you saw the birds. That’s why I picked this fabric but didn’t realize that it would create an illusion at the finish.

  2. Lovely – the car is my favourite! I’m taking part in the swap also – can’t believe how addictive these little blocks are. Looking forward to seeing the rest!

    • Thank you for you kind comments Bess. It is amazing how this block turned out! I picked it because for two little birds. I can see how you could think it was a collar & tie.

  3. Haha! These are awesome! I do have say, for the optical illusion block, I was trying toiling urge out what I saw…sort of a face and then when you mentioned the birds. OH I see it! Pretty neat. Lots of really fun fabrics. Thanks for linking up!
