Bonus Block Thursday!

Well I know you've all been patiently waiting for today's Bonus Block. The day kind of got away from me and I did go for a 4 mile very muddy hike so that's part of why it's late.

Anyway, today we are making a Milky Way* block:

Cut background:  (2) - 3" squares (for 4 hsts, fin 2")
      dark            (2) - 3" squares (for 4 hsts, fin 2")

Cut background:  (1) - 2-1/2" square

Cut background: (1)- 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" strip
     medium:      (1)- 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" strip, making (4) 4-patches, fin 2"

Easy! Fun! Get to it!!

Remember, next Wednesday the 18th is the second Wednesday of April and there will be 3 more Sow-A-Long blocks! So BE READY!!!

I'm going to do a linky-thing, finally.  I'm thinking we can plan to have the linky party on April 25th...I'll keep you posted.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Love to you all,
Randy, Head Sower


  1. Okay, I'm up for it!!
    Four mile muddy hike? Was it fun?

  2. Thanks Randy
    And yes, I was the one anxiously awaiting! It was my day off today and I had some time to see.

  3. Thanks for the Bonus Block, Randy. Will we have to have a blog to join in on the linkup?

  4. Love that block! Keep up the good work.

  5. Thanks for the bonus block. I needed just one more to finish the Farmer's Wife quilt. I now have all the blocks made. Just need to purchase over 5 yards for sashing. I can't believe that it will take that much to sash all the blocks but that's what the book calls for. Need to go shopping...
