Introducing my latest quilting creation! 🧵✨ I've played with the classic 'mill' blocks, weaving some magic with my pre-cut fabrics to craft two distinct options in a single sewing session: a delightful wonky version and a captivating twisted one. When seamlessly combined in a design, they give rise to additional mesmerizing lines for the eyes to follow – a visual treat! 🌈✨ And for those not so fond of making half-square triangles, here's a sweet bonus 😊: just square up one side before assembling the final block, making the process a breeze. Plus, they're all scrappy! Happy sewing, fellow quilting enthusiasts!

It is a classic block but it doesn’t need to be boring! To add a little bit of detail, I used cathedral windows technique to round one of the sides in a shape of a smile. Hence the name of the block: Smiling bear paw. These blocks are very versatile and you can lay them in quite a few options and combinations with other blocks.

And the best thing is, that you can use your scraps from magic number trays to make it in any colour combo or any type of design, which makes the process of creating very quick. Hope you like it. Happy sewing!

This block idea was on agenda for a very long time. I wanted to make it quick and easy. But sometimes what you need is to slow down… When I used machine to make it from start to finish, what I was getting was so far away from my vision, that I put down this idea back to WIP box for months before trying again. Finally, it came to me: slow and steady wins the design! And here are my splats, exactly as I imagined them. You can use crumbs as I did, but you can also showcase some rare fabrics in your collection. There are many layouts to put these blocks into as well. Check my latest YouTube tutorial and see what you can make from splats! Happy sewing.
