It's all about the Blocks...

'bout the blocks...

Having finished piecing My Small World, I had some catching up on other blocks to get on with. First up was the #365quiltchallenge2016 blocks - I had 8 to piece.



I'm well behind on the Farmer's Wife quilt, so I printed the patterns and caught up with one block this morning.

This block felt HUGE after working on the 3" blocks above!

And today was the start of the Splendid Sampler Quilt - there were literally thousands of quilters on Facebook all waiting for today's block to be released. Timing was perfect: Michael and Mia were busy watching the football so I pieced it immediately. My plan is to make only the blocks I like and see how big the quilt gets. I'm using an assortment of low volume backgrounds and any and all solids: the plan is that each block is a single colour way so I can lay them out in rainbow order in the final lap quilt/baby quilt/mini quilt...

My heart applique patch is a little smaller than everyone else's... our printer is upstairs and I was being mega-lazy so drew out my own!

And finally, and somewhat unexpectedly, I made another Patchwork of the Crosses Block. It's been a while since I made up one of these...



18 blocks this week and I'm well on target for my 365 blocks this year - making some headway before the baby arrives.

Hi Jennie - goodness, the block-making is going great at your place! I like your idea with Splendid...
