Looking back over the last few months has been fun. I want to finish showing you my group photos of my monthly blocks.
The first one has been the most difficult to make, but also the most satisfying because I just love these Twinkler stars.
I’m also happy with my improv blocks, where the colors were sometimes a challenge. I found that batiks will often have the right mix, such as brown and pink, and also have some designs good for fussy cutting.
I’ve done two each month of the Modern HST Sampler 12-inch blocks. Again I’ve used the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors for the most part. Lately I’ve switched around because I’ve ended up with too much purple. So for August I made another aqua beachy block, the Whirligig.
Here are blocks 7-12, which were for the latest Modern HST Sampler progress photo.
My only problem is having little for show and tell at our quilt group. However, I’ve just been inspired to start a new quilt project, using a collection of fat eights I’ve had for two years. It is Just Type by Patty Young for Michael Miller. I have chosen a pattern very popular at our quilt group. More next week.
Are all of you excited, relieved or exhausted now that school has started? I hope all you moms will have some extra time for catching your breath and doing some stitching. Fall is a great time for starting new projects, even better than the New Year I think. I wish everyone a happy September.
