Benjamin Biggs and a new toy

Blocks six and seven the  latest blocks for the Benjamin Biggs quilt.

All my blocks together.  I really think I need to invest in a new camera or better lighting because the fabrics don’t seem to look their best in these pictures.

I also discovered a new tool which I hope will make squaring up all these blocks a little easier.  It’s Karen Kay Buckley’s Perfect Adjustable Square.  I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t give an opinion on how well it works.  I am hoping it will take some of the fear I have about squaring blocks away.
Here’s hoping you find some time to stitch today,


  1. It's coming along, Nancy and your blocks are gorgeous!! That tool looks pretty neat!! I am stitching today - a Kaffe strip lap quilt!!

  2. I am interested in your opinion of the square up ruler once you give it a try.

  3. Six and Seven are 2 more stunning BB blocks! I really like those yellow roses for the corners. It lends a beautiful secondary pattern and color design to your quilt.

  4. Los bloques se ven preciosos!!!
    y la regla!! ya nos contaras parece muy interesante
    buen fin de semana

  5. Two wonderfully done blocks! Anxious to hear more about the squaring up ruler.

  6. Your blocks look lovely together! Thanks for the tip about the adjustable square - what a great idea :)

  7. These are lovely, Nancy - I must get back to mine. Thanks for sharing!
