Sew Thinky Thursday: Week 9

These weeks are just flying by! Crazy! This week is an easy question - go with your gut and tell me whatever comes to mind first. No need to over think... ok, ok you can over think if you want. 

If you were a quilt block which one would you be?

Base your answer on what you use most, or what is more metaphorically you. Please try to link to an example, or show a pic of the block if you have one so we'll know exactly what block you mean!

Now for my answer:

Some of my favorite projects using my fav blocks! For individual links to the pics go here.
If I were a quilt block I'd be a prairie point. Why? First off I'm not good at following directions so of course I would pick something that's not actually a block. If I had to choose a real block I'd say a flying geese, or a wonky star. I love the thought of flying geese - flying on their way to great things. I like the symmetry and challenge of getting all those points just so. I like doing things precise and tiny and big and crazy, flying geese are good at both. And what can I say, those little prairie points have my heart. 

Now it's your turn! Choose your favorite block and come back to link up with us! Remember to link back here, and to leave some comments on the other posts! 


  1. I would love to be a nine patch block sunce that design reflects all the moods, roles and tasks I perform during the day: wife, mother, lawyer, quilter, friend, work, shopping, counseling children, paying all seq.

  2. I love this question Emily! Just linked up.
