After a year of Paper Piecing Monday I have finally finished a quilt from my Monday blocks. I am very proud to present my Block Rock’n sampler quilt top.
All these blocks are from Julie at 627Handwork’s fabulous free Block Rock’n pattern collection. There are only two blocks from her collection missing from this quilt – my Icky Thump block became part of the beautiful Icicle quilt and Julie’s Floyd block which I have not made yet.
For the record my favourite block is this beauty….
For the quilting of this lovely , I went with diagonal lines, which seemed appropriate with the off center block placement I went with.
For the backing I found some fabulously outrageous IKEA fabric in my stash which was just perfect. The photo does not do these neon lips justice.
The final touch was some solid Kona grey binding, which was attached using the sewing machine. I figured that this quilt might get a lot of love (and stains) and wanted it to be as durable as possible. Machine binding, though not as pretty as hand binding, in my opinion, does add some sturdiness.
I seriously love how this quilt came together… so much so that it is staying with me. It is going to be our couch quilt and I am soooooo excited.QUILT DETAILS Technique: Scrap paper piecing Block size: 12 x 12 blocks Finished size: 57″ x 60″

I love this so so so much! Awesome job. I can’t wait to do more Block Rock’n.
They are such great blocks. I love what No Hats has done with the Marley block…can not wait to see what you do with them. I know I am not done with these patterns either.
This quilt is AWESOME! I love everything about it. That ikea fabric- so perfect!
Fabulous once again! May I ask, what kind of paper do you use for your piecing and do you print the blocks on an ink jet printer? Thanks!
I use plain simple photo copier paper and my very old HP inkjet printer. Occasionally my husband will photocopy patterns for me if I have a lot to do but usually for Paper Piecing Monday stuff unjust run it through my printer.
Very cool – I didn’t realize it could be quite that easy!
It really is easy… and in my biased opinion, a lot of fun. Good luck with it all Lynne
That Ikea fabric is rockin it! Must find me some. Your Penny Lane block is my favorite too. Your quilt turned out fabulous.
It’s glorious! Front and back!
Seriously gorgeous. You have totally inspired me to do some paper piecing, probably with some of the blocks you’ve posted. I have triplets arriving in the family in April. They’re each going to get a plain white quilt with one brightly coloured block on it, offset and a matching back. I just love the bright colours against the grey. What a clever thing you are…
This is so pretty! I really need to learn to paper piece!
You’ve done it again – terrific job, Cath! I’m so taken with your paper-piecing and the toning-down the grey fabric does. I’m going to have to watch for some grey stuff!
Love those lips! Beautiful work!
Turned out great. Those lips are a fun back.
Wow!!! I just love this! The front, the back, everything!!! Way to go!!!
This is amazing and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the back! I need to get back to my blocks.
Great quilt! I particularly love all of the different grey fabrics, awesome.
Your blocks are beautiful ~ love the grey background. The back is hilarious ~ love Ikea fabrics.
Just gorgeous! I may need to steal your idea here in it’s entirety, right down to the grey with bright blocks. Love every last bit of this Cath! (and what a perfect choice for the back!)
Steal away. The grey is really effective and it only takes 10 blocks to make. Easy peasy.
Love this quilt! The off center placement is great. I think I may need to do more paper piecing in the new year.
How great is this? The back is outrageously perfect! Enjoy!!!!
Love this! That backing fabric is so fun!
If I knew where you lived I would come and grab this amazing quilt and run run run!!!!! It’s fabulous.
I would fight you for it. I am actually sitting in the couch under it as I type this. It is my new favorite thing.
Oh i just love all the grey you used! Those stars look so pretty with it. That size is so great for couches, I bet it will get used a lot!
I keep coming back to gaze at your quilt! What a delightful thing it is! I love the brights sparkling against the grey background. Hey! Did you receive my tiny parcel of fabric? I got yours and I treasure it!!!! Thank you again.
