So this is on my design wall today. These are blocks for a Sew Along that my guild is doing. I am the organizer so I need to see this often to decide what the next blocks will be. This could not come at a better time for our members. I even added blocks because we all have a lot of time on our hands!
I love this book block! It was a fun one. I had to figure out how to fit in those titles.
All of my guilds have started having Zoom meetings. They are fun but let's face it, not quite the same as the real thing. I am hoping things will get back to normal so we can see real quilts and hear real lectures.
I won these at the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild last week. I have always loved the Quick Curved Ruler. The book has a fun tulip pattern I want to try.
So of course I had to try it out. Two blocks made using (2) 5" squares. They came out perfect which is the whole idea behind the ruler. If you have been wanting to try curves, this is the perfect tool. I do have a quilt in mind......
This is a Fig Tree block of the month. I am enjoying it and am excited to see how it unfolds.
My focus is still a bit shaky.....this is how the block is supposed to look
but I got this one instead! Oh well it will truly be my quilt.
I have also started a doll quilt. These blocks are 3 1/2". I will set them with alternating blue squares. At least that is the plan for now. As you can see, one can never have too many projects!
Wow! A lot of you wanted to make this quilt! I sent out about 200 patterns!!! I can't wait to see what you all do with it. I love how mine turned out and the colors are so bright outside. It feels kitschy and a little 1970's to me. Please ignore the dirty deck, we haven't cleaned it yet.
I feel like this is a pattern that you can use any fabrics with and have a successful quilt.
The more fabrics the merrier and the crazier the better!
So to be clear the size of the block is 10" not 12", I wrote it wrong. Also if you emailed me and did not get the pattern it is because I did not get your email. Sometime when people email the email address is not there. If this is you, please send me another email and include your email address in it and I will be happy to send it to you.
Now how to quilt it.....and figure out the name.
