To making a couple of blocks for Kat's September Covered in Love block drive...She has a color guide and tutorial for these blocks in that post, so I looked around in my stash and came up with the ones below. Purple is so hard to photograph, but each block does have purple, green (what shade would you call that?), a dark blue, a light blue, and a cream color.
This is a pattern by my friend, Cynthia Brunz, who inspires all of us with her scrappy genius and is available from Craftsy. Check out her blog, Quilting is More Fun than Housework, for the link to Craftsy.
I am loving this pattern! It is perfect for a jelly roll and is so fast to cut, lay out, and stitch up that I can see a finished quilt top in my very near future! (Which is not typical of me as I am a slow stitcher, generally!)
You can see the top hanging on the chair as it comes together, row by row.
I really like chain piecing, and this pattern works perfectly for that. To keep track of the order of my rows, I have just been leaving each row attached to the whole bunch, and snipping one off at a time to add on to the quilt top.
I didn't make any progress on it yesterday as we decided we needed to get out of the house, and went wine tasting instead of sewing, but I will be back at it today!
Happy Labor Day weekend to all of you! I think fall is on its way!
Linking up with Oh Scrap at Cynthia's blog today!
