Hop to It: "Garden Grace"

I couldn't help myself. I've been on such a roll lately with these Hop to It blocks that I just had to keep going and finish up the last one.

Block 9, "Garden Grace":

Hop to It block 9, Garden Grace
Techniques used:
  • Bias bars for the stems;
  • Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles for the berries;
  • Needleturn with freezer paper on top for everything else.
This one was a lot of fun and I love the way it turned out. The neutrals in this one with the sparks of bright color really appeal to me. Happy! I also can't help but feel that I found the perfect fabric in my stash for that center bud-- love it! And...

Hop to It, completed blocks
All the blocks are complete! Woo hoo!!! Now I just need to figure out sashing. Here's hoping I don't fall into my recent pattern of finishing the applique and then stalling out on putting it all together (ahem... I'm talking about you, Greenpiece!).


  1. WOO HOO!!!!!! They look FABULOUS!!!!! I really admire your dedication in getting them done. Keep going, I can't wait to see this finished.

  2. I have faith in you! I can't wait to see what the sashings will be! There are so many of the colours that would look great! yellow, orange, brown, green! Oh, you best get to it and make me stop guessing!

  3. GORGEOUS!!!!! They look so good together! I can't believe you got them all done! This is going to be amazing when it is finished!

  4. You go girl! I am jealous.
    It looks fabulous. Can't wait to see how you sash it.

  5. Oh they look so wonderful together. I have the pattern but haven't started it.

  6. Stunning!! I especially love the backgrounds and the colours are fantastic.

  7. Can't wait to see it when it is done!
