Block 37: Fixer Upper

I live in a fixer upper. I will never forget that first month and all the sweat it took to rip out carpet, linoelum, baseboards, old wallpaper, etc. Of course, all the work was worth it, and I ended up with a beautiful, blank canvas. Over the last couple years, I’ve been adding to it little by little and love the home it’s become.


I decided to create a little quilt block as homage to those early fixer upper days. I started with a simple square and kept building upon it to look like a charming little tile square. Here it is--just as satisfying as a real home project (but much less time and mess).

My sample block is the 6" finished size and uses a Bloomington bias stripe print + the aqua floral from Lollipop Garden fabric collection.

To check out my final layout for the blocks (and an updated archive of the blocks), check my original post here.

I hope you enjoy making this one! For my September deal, grab a copy of my Square Dance pattern (pictured below) for just $5 (PDF or printed booklet) or save $5 on my bestselling book: Jelly Filled - 18 Quilts from 2 1/2" Strips.


Stay tuned in October for a peek at new fabric, the release of 4 (!) new quilt patterns, and watch for Folktale to arrive in shops. To stay up-to-date with me, follow me on Instagram or Facebook @lellaboutique or subscribe to this blog. Stay safe, friends!
