Patchwork Camp part 3

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.  
The last thing I did before I left Robe was to sash these little woolly basket blocks.  
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.


  1. You must have been at Robe for a week to get all that done!

  2. You girls made great use of your time. Fabulous projects on show. You have set a very high standard for yourself finishing all these quilt tops.

  3. I really like each of your projects, but the woolly baskets grabbed me. I saved the patterns, but haven't made any blocks yet. Your color combo is truly a winner!

  4. It feels good to get so much done. The little wool baskets look great with the pink sashing. It helps to get direction from friends!

  5. Beautiful quilts--I especially like the baskets. The pink sashing you chose with the maroon cornerstones is just perfect to frame them..

  6. Oh I love the vivid grid blocks. I think I've found my next baby quilt design.
