Spokes blocks received and a small quilt with Block Lotto influence

Posted by on September 3, 2014 in show and tell | 7 comments

I’m very happy to report that ALL of my spokes blocks have arrived, and they are making a charming display on my design wall. Aren’t they wonderful? Now all I have to do it figure out the best way to make them into a quilt masterpiece! Thanks to everyone who sent me blocks.

The blocks that spell out my name in the lower left corner were made by Marielle in Mexico, who sent them along as a surprise. Marielle I love them! Thank you.

I made this little quilt, which features Sophie’s sun pattern from earlier in the summer, for my quilt guild’s small quilt challenge. All entries have to be exactly 20 inches square, and the theme we were given was “Celebration.” Hmmm……that’s a tough one to design a quilt around, but I’m something of a sun worshiper, so there you have it.



  1. Both quilts are adorable!!! I love the sun & sunflowers quilt! Reminds me of George Harrison’s Here Comes The Sun!

  2. I love your little quilt and have no doubt that you will make something beautiful from the spikes blocks.,

    FYI, I changed the category on your post so that your little quilt will be added to the gallery.

    • Thanks

  3. I received tow beautiful blocks from you today. It is going to be so much fun to see all the different window blocks. I love this “Celebration ” quilt. So clever.

  4. Your Celebration quilt is awesome!

  5. I love your Celebration quilt! The composition and colours are perfect.

  6. I have to agree with everyone else about your “Celebration” Quilt! I’ too am a sunny worshiper so I can relate!

    ps. glad you like the letters! and you figured out what they spell LOLL!!!!!
