A couple of weeks ago, I purchased some cookie cutters because I had a project in mind that I wanted to use them for, instead I borrowed them to use as inspiration for quilting designs. The reason I purchased them was to make scented decorations so my house would smell of Christmas.

Today I was cruising around Jennifer Houlden's blog and looking at all the work she has done in the past six months on her blog. Good for you Jennifer, you have produced a whole lot of interesting and informative blog posts. I pulled a couple of her blocks (with her permission of course) to show you. Click on the links under each photo to get the instructions on how to make the blocks.

Card Trick and Grecian Square Quilt

Last Monday, I put together two blocks "Card Trick" and "Grecian Square" to see how they looked. They coupled well together I thought so this week I made some more to make a small quilt. I wanted to share the requirements with you. I made a total of EIGHT "Card Trick" blocks and SEVEN "Grecian Square" blocks. The blocks are 6" finished blocks.

Yesterday I made the Card Trick block. To make it easy, I used only squares even though the block is made up of many triangles. We had a few units left over. Sooooo....

This week's block is Card Trick. I've always liked this block but never made it before. It is actually one of the block's in Carol's class "Anatomy of a Block" that I am teaching at Quilt University.

Over the last two weeks I made two Mosaic Blocks. They were the same block but I made them differently. Today I want to take a closer look at them and see what makes them different.
