Josh's All Sorts of Wiggles in a House Block

It's Leah here for Josh today! We've been bouncing on and offline all morning (PLEASE Time Warner Cable - FIX IT ALREADY!) and Josh is busy with loads of other things so I'm posting his block and video today:

There was a lot of Stippling in the background of this block, which Josh found tricky to quilt perfectly on the lines, especially close to the edges of the block. He completely ignored the lines in a few sections and the effect is pretty cool!

Honestly we're both a bit distracted today because it's James's first day of first grade. He also nearly lost is first front tooth yesterday (it's hanging on my a single thread!), so he's experiencing a lot of firsts all at once. He might come home and be the first kid that's lost his tooth on the first day of school in first grade!
Back to quilting and here's the video:

Yep, you can still join in this project anytime by picking up a copy of the Building Blocks Quilt Pattern.

Or you can try the Spoonflower Cheater Cloth fabric like Josh is using. See all the colorways of this fabric here.

So what's your favorite type of wiggle? The boxy teeth design or the wiggly Stippling? Try them all out on this block and have fun learning how to free motion quilt so many different types of wiggly lines!

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day
