9 blocks done, 3 to go


I made a couple of these the other night and some today. I am not loving the blocks with the white-background outer fabrics, but keep reminding myself that it will look different when I get it put together with the sashing. I had these on the floor for a while during naptime, and then after Sissy woke up I had to figure out a layout for my photo and pick them up, otherwise she would be dragging the quilt blocks all over the house.

I didn't exactly follow my cutting/sewing plan with the blue silhouette fabric so there will not be two blocks with that fabric in the outer position. Oh well, it will be ok and I'm sure I have enough of the other fabrics to make all the blocks I need.

I really love the colors in this quilt. So vibrant and fun. Orange is my favorite color and I love it paired with blue. Very nice. :)

I'm a knitter, but I'm getting more "serious" about sewing and LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! It's beautiful : ). I'm also a mom (4 daughters) and in my 30's. I have never made my quilt, but it is my goal for this year. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with those of us who are truly starting from scratch!
