Exactly one month ago I showed you the colour inspiration picture for the Foot 2 Freestyle Swap I had just signed up for.
I am the first to receive 33 blocks in June. Great he?!
In April, I created two of my blocks in mustard, coral and jadeite.
Block 1 and 2:
The pink block on the left was inspired by a block I had seen in a blog post by Ellison Lane. I pretty much copied hers… So pretty!!! I drew up the paper piecing pattern myself with the EQ7 software.
I am planning to create 9 blocks instead of the 3 we do for each other. I want this to be a big quilt. Each block in 12″ (finished)
So this week I made more blocks!
Block 4: I had to restart this block as my geese turned out the wrong size. (Still learning how to use an iMac)
There are 36 different fabrics in this block…. and I had plenty to spare. And yeah… it took forever to do!
I admit it: I have WAY TOO MUCH fabric for the 9 blocks. That’s alright. I will make more things with these fabrics. They are gorgeous!
Some fabrics will be used for the other blocks for the other participants of this swap. (See how I just justified the piles and piles of fabric on my desk?)
In 2013 I designed this paper piecing block. This is not for the faint hearted… it has many pieces and can take up to 5 hours to construct. The design is called ” Blooming Hot” and is available on Craftsy.
Soon I will show you the blocks I have made for the month of July. I am working ahead as I don’t know what the future may bring with school stuff and a house for sale. AND… I LOVE to create these blocks!
See you all soon!
