A Little Porch Time Part 2

Here is my second part of A Little Porch Time, designed by Primitive Pieces by Lynda. If you didn't have your house block done then please add a link to that block too.

If you don't have a blog an want to share your block email me a photo and I'll add it to the link.

Below are the next blocks we are making.
The first one is the bee skep with bird. We will need to be piecing this section together so we'll be ready to add the water can and flowers. Be sure not to center the bee skep.
Simple basket and star flowers.
And one little 9 patch.

I think these blocks will work up fairly easy.  Enjoy!

I'm leaving early in the morning for my east coast adventure! I'm looking forward to renewing friendships and seeing eye dazzling quilts at Vermont QuiltFest!! I've got a few post ready to roll. Don't worry if you have sent a birthday block- hubby is holding down the fort and will be checking the mail. I'll be back 3 days then picking up my friend Gabe for the "Adventures of Sisters Quilt show!"


  1. Love the blocks!

    Have fun on your adventure. Can't wait to hear all about it. And, then Sisters - woohoo!

  2. I love them too!
    I am on vacation soon and I plan to catch up. You are inspiring me.

  11. Beautiful blocks--I could probably handle making the 9-patch.
    Have a grand adventure! Wish I was going in your suitcase. Vermont is so much closer to my daughter's new home in New Hampshire than Utah is. Oh, and the quilty stuff would be great, too. : )

  20. ooh great blocks - looks like fun!

  21. LOve everyone's ''zinnias''!

    I m probably being a bit overly cautious for a prim quilt, but on the basket flower block we are doing for July, I want to point out that the diagram and measurements of the backgrounds do not line up the same as on the finished quilt [look along the bottom seam of the adjacent House block?] on this block, and others, I am adding extra inches and leaving myself a reminder...I d rather trim later than come up short! ...

    have fun on your adventures, Lori!


  22. Looking so very cute. You do such great work. Keep stitching.
