Building Blocks quilt variation by Shari from Bear Creek Quilting Company

Shari, the owner of the Bear Creek Quilt Company and one of my sponsors, was kind enough to offer to test and review my pattern Building Blocks that was posted over at the Moda Bake Shop earlier this week.

Shari made her version over the winter holiday using Somerset by Fig Tree & Co by Moda.  She used a more complex middle block adding a fussy cut flower print and a small border.  Shari also added extra print strips and charm square strips to the top and bottom of the quilt to bring it from the original baby size to a nice lap size.  I love her changes and the resultant quilt top! 

Thank you so much Shari for testing the pattern for me and allowing me to share your wonderful quilt top!

By the way, the Bear Creek Quilting Company just announced its new Block of the Month, Aura Morning Glory starting in February and just got in a fat quarter bundle of all of the new 2014 Kona colors (I am drooling just a little over this one).

Happy Quilting!


  1. Such a lovely quilt, simplistic yet beautiful.

  2. I like the addition of the print strips and charm square strips to the top and bottom. A handy and pretty way to make the quilt larger. Nice Job, Shari (and Cheryl).

  3. Great idea to add the top and bottom borders! Love her variation too.

  4. Loving this quilt and I love the diversity of how easy it is to make it the appropriate size for whomever you are making it for! Very beautiful choice of fabrics as well!

  5. As she hugged a male friend goodbye the Australian songstress looked like any other holiday maker about to take Timberland Sale a flight abroad. She teamed the look with a pair of ripped boyfriend style jeans and a cute pair of fur beige boots. Smiling broadly the 46-year-old looked to be in great spirits as she Timberland Outlet online wandered through the busy International airport carrying a small black holdall.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
