I had plans to make these 12" blocks a feI have had these blocks cut out for a long time. I made up the dimensions myself to use up 6" novelty squares and some brights that were donated to me, but making sure there was minimal white. I never think white is a good colour for kids quilts.This is not the ideal size, but OK for a baby quilt after I find some suitable border fabric. The next one I make will be larger, but I use different colours for the churn dash part of the block.
This is a Thimble blossom Mini pattern called Spools. I used a charm pack called Miss Kate (?) designed by Bonnie and Camille, same as the pattern. I have made one previously (and gifted it) if you think it looks familiar. The pattern only uses a few charms, so I have been wanting to make one for myself, I want to quilt this soon, it is perfect for my sewing corner wall!I got the extra Vivid Grid blocks made and I have sewn it all together! So pleased with this top. I have to admit that when I prepped for the extra blocks I didnt count. So there are plenty of pieces cut ready to make more....but bit over them at present! But I can see myself making more in the future. I just need a break from brights!
These little 4" baskets are a Jo Morton pattern called Beth's baskets from her book Jo's Little Favorites. These blocks are going to have to wait a while, as there are other things that need finishing first. But I do have the fabric all picked ready to go.
Everyone agreed the pink was a winner, but the green I had picked for cornerstones was wrong. It was suggested red and thought fussy cutting the cornerstones was the go. I was just in a frenzy to finish and did as I was told! SEW glad I did!
I assume there is another border to be added, but it is a free pattern from Dawn Heese, so will have to go online and check out finished ones. Then again it might be fine as is, only a wall hanging so doesn't need to be larger.
SEW as you can see, camp was very productive and good fun.
Happy quilting Sue.
