Quilt blocks

Remember those 4-patch blocks (from Anna Maria Horner’s fabric) that I started last weekend?  I have been working on combining those with strips of the same fabric and have made six 15.5 inch blocks so far.  Here they are.


The fabric is much more vibrant than the photo shows.  Below is a scan of a partial block.


I will add strips of fabric in between each block, perhaps a 3 inch strip, so each block will be framed.

This is going to become a twin size quilt (my daughter has her eyes on this one).

Stay tuned for more.

    I can’t wait to see what you do with the twinchies. I think this square format will be natural for you seeing that you are working with squares in your fabric arts adventures.

    I’m grateful to have a digital playground where I can mingle with other creatives like you who love to play. I’m still amazed that this place called blogland exists and I have a spot in it.

    Visit my blog tomorrow. I’m posting my first tiaras. They are so cool!

    Don’t you love her fabrics? Did you hear the interview with her at Craftsanity? Really fun.
    Anyway, thank you for visiting my blog. And I am hoping to get more into fabrics and even include them in my upcoming journal, so I’ll be coming back here for inspiration. Nice place!
