Here is what I have on my design wall this morning. These blocks will finish at 3 inches and are from a swap that I was in with several friends that I retreat with twice a year. Our group consisted of either six or seven, and we each chose 6 different blocks and made one for each swap member. So every 6 months I ended up with either 36 or 42 blocks, all different.
The only rules we had were that the blocks had to finish at 3". There are some holiday and seasonal blocks.
There are traditional pieced blocks and some applique'.
I love these little blocks: there are several cat blocks, an American flag, a grandmothers flower garden block, and a pumpkin.
This is going to be a busy quilt. With an alternate block the quilt will measure around 57" X 66" without borders.
I think I need an alternate block to give your eye a place to rest. What do you think? Would you just use a solid block or a pieced block? What alternate block would you use?
You can go over to Judy's blog www.patchworktimes.com to see what others have up on their design walls today.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you are having a nice day and finding some time to do some stitching!
