Before the work week starts again, I wanted to take advantage from this quiet Sunday evening and write another blog post.
As you may remember I am participating in a worldwide year long swap. In June I received about 30 blocks myself. What a load of fun each day to get happy mail every other everyday!
Each month we create 3 blocks for somebody else following their color preferences.
These are the blocks I made for July in orange, green and turquoise:
Being inspired by the “around the world” block. The part of the fabrics is lined up horizontally and part is lined up diagonally.
This swirly star/flower is one of my designs called “Blurry“.
August in red, blue and white.
I saw this design online somewhere and I recreated it in EQ7 to fit a 12″ block. It is foundation paper pieced.
This one I created with a fabric cutter with dies.
And the last one is a block made with my own pattern Pointy.
September in Black and white with a vibrant color:
I really felt like fussy cutting for this block. This is how I started:
This block used a lot of fabric, but I adore the result!
This pattern is a beginner friendly paper piecing pattern called “Jewel” .
The second block is also a pattern of mine. This one is “Dazzle”
I played around with half of the pieces for this star.
As the picture of the finished block is really blurry, I am also showing you the picture of the separate parts.
Whoops, blurry picture!
And last but not least…
An improv block!
I used the sidekick ruler for this block.
I have already started working on the blocks for October. Some yummy fabrics and gorgeous color combinations coming up!
P.s. Linking up with Finish it Up Friday at Crazymomquilts.
