So Excited!

I took my new blocks to the sewing room and they shouted that they wanted to be joined with some bright blocks I’d been sewing yesterday.  I added a border to make the 6.5 inch blocks to 6.5 x 8.5.  This is how some of them look!  I’m saving some of the more subdued ones for the other idea I had, but this is going to work.  I’m thinking some kind of black/white sashing and little red squares inbetween that–dunno for sure, but these brights are working together, I think!  There’s going to be 2 quilts from these blocks–and they will be so-o-o different!  The “holes” are where I still need to make some crumb blocks.


  1. How fun! Great setting idea. I'm off to the post office to send you my block right now.

  2. I like the look of this. I'm be tempted to skip sashing the blocks altogether and put them together in a straight set with your cool(I mean bright!) scrappy alternate blocks and then just add a few borders and include the black & white print in one of them.

  3. This looks super!

  4. A really vivid setting– I think I agree with Sophie about the setting.

    Putting your blocks in the mail tomorrow!

  5. I see my blocks! And they look great in the setting you are working on!

  6. Very nice setting!

  7. I love it with those alternate blocks!!!!! it's so happy!
