Rainbow I Spy Block Drive at Threaded Mess

Natalie writes Threaded Mess and she is hosting a block drive for quilts that she will donate to her local NICU.  She is asking that people send in 12.5" blocks made up in a single color (novelty prints, tone on tone prints and solids).  The blocks need to be made using a Square in Square pattern. 

Anna Maria Horner did a one-page .pdf with instructions on how to make the 12.5" Joseph's Square in Square block and you can download it here.

She is hosting her block drive in 3 rounds.  I missed round one which closed on 8/30 but I'm going to try to participate in rounds 2 (closes 9/30) and 3 (closes 10/30). 

Here are my first batch of blocks for Round 2. 

I spy pink roses ...

And I spy pink ships...

I so wish that I had remembered to cut the ships on point... but that ship has sailed.  (GET IT - SHIP!  Ok, I know, lame.)

I'm going to put these in the mail to Natalie within the next couple of days and hopefully I'll be able to send her a couple more before the month is out.  This is an open block drive so you can skip over to Threaded Mess and join the fun! 


  1. thanks for all of these beautiful blocks!! No worries that the centers are on point, I twist and turn them a bit so that the tops are an adventure from any angle. I'm so thankful you decided to participate and shared this drive with your blog readers!! thanks again!
