Using a fat quarter bundle called Blush and Blooms by Melissa Ibarra of Iza Pearl Design, up to this point I had made nine 12.5 inch blocks using various sizes of Sawtooth Stars. This fabric line is a fun combination of floral and geometric prints, plus some blenders that read as solid, although they aren't really. I love the variety of pink, green, aqua, and orange in these blocks!
After I got these blocks out earlier this week, it was time to decide what to do with them! So, besides making a few smaller stars, I started cutting and sewing 4 patch blocks in lots of sizes.
They have ended up in blocks like these -
And then added to the layout like this -
Every time I walk by my design wall, I switch two blocks or turn one to orient it another way, so this is definitely not what the final layout will be! I'm planning to make a few more blocks so that I'll end up with 20 blocks total, for a quilt that will be about 48 x 60.
One of my favorite prints in this bundle is this one, with its pretty mix of yellow, green, orange, and aqua.
I decided to grab a bit of it to use in my Tiny Tuesday reverse appliqued heart.
So perfect with that aqua grunge that has a bit of yellow woven in!
Here's the finished block with its gray sashing -
And all of the aqua/turquoise/blue-green blocks for April -
I'm looking forward to adding some orange to the mix this month!
