Sea Glass Blocks for Sew-Euro-bee-an

I finally made the Sea Glass Blocks that Helen requested for “her” month September. She sent a great inspirational mosaic:

And here is what I came up with:

Helens Block 1

Helens Block 2

The small “glasses” are 0,5” squares and the bigger one are 1” squares. Quite a pain to sew… And then last night I discovered I wasn’t bright enough to measure and calculate. Not that it was that big news to me but it was annoying never the less… Block number one turned out to be too small and had to be unpicked first thing this morning. Aaaah!

However I am not unhappy with the final result and I even finished the signature block before I brought the kids home from kindergarten. So they are going to the mail tomorrow. The blocks. Not the kids. Or do you fancy a family addition, Helen?

You might want to check out the other sea glass blocks that my fellow members made for Helen, there’s a nice collection in our flickr pool.

Happy Sewing everyone!


  1. Great interpretation of the brief Christine.
    She is sure to love those two.

  2. They are lovely! I hope to make mine this weekend while the hubby looks after the little miss.

  3. I think they are gorgeous!
    On the child front - how about you send me one of yours and I swap you for a stroppy teenager?!!

  4. Ooh, these are lovely. I rather fancy the colour palette!


Thank you for stopping by and taking time to leave me a comment. You make my day :o)))
