A peck of pickled peppers

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments yesterday. You guys actually make my day :o) My car is in the garage getting all fixed up (which may mean I now have to have 2 different keys to open the doors and the boot... but lets not speak of these little annoyances!), and I'm feeling much better about everything today.


The whole time I was making this block, I had this little nursery rhyme running through my head:


Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked;
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?


Sometimes I actually hate my brain. Gah.


I showed you some instagram pics of this block yesterday, but since I finished her up last night, I thought she was worthy of some proper photo's :o)

I decided to sash each block in one of the prints I'd used in the body. I was gonna go with wonky sashing, but I haven't quite mastered the art of making wonky look purposeful yet, so it ends up looking like I can't sew straight. Better to try that on something less important, me thinks.

Some of the points are slightly off, and I had to re-sew the green one about 4 times. But overall, I think they look great!

For completeness, I'm showing you a picture of the back. Its a hot mess. Or maybe just a mess, I'm not sure what qualifies the hotness of the mess.

Hope you like it Ceri!


(The front, not the back... we'll just gloss over that shall we?)

  6. They look fabulous! You crack me up about your wonky just looking like you can't sew. That's exactly how I feel! And doesn't everyone's block backs look like that?

  18. I love your bell pepper quilt blocks and thought maybe you got the pattern from Fat Quarterly magazine but I've looked through them all. Please can you tell me where you got it from? The other thing is I LOVE your blog and thank you so much for sharing.
