You know that there is a lot of temptation out there in blog land. There is always something fun that you can be a part of or some new fabrics you can see (or buy) or a new quilting idea that you can try.
Lately, I've been noticing all of the Garden Fence blocks on some of my favorite blogs. The blocks are all so different, and I can't stop looking at them. So I had a weak moment.
I went over to McIntyre Girl's blog just to have a look around. She is hosting the quilt along. Then I decided maybe I would just make enough of these blocks for a table runner. I know you're laughing. How many times have you said that? I'll just make a few blocks-----just enough for a table runner or small wall hanging?
Here's what I have done so far. These blocks finish at 10", and there are no seams to match. Honest! They go together very quickly and easily.
I may need a bigger table at this rate. I'm using a Lovely layer cake by Moda that I've been saving for something special, and I thought the florals would be perfect for this project. I picked up 3 different shades of Kona Cotton to try out for the sashing. I have more fabric left so maybe I'll make just a few more blocks. The quilt along instructions use either a fat quarter or regular quarter of fabric, but the dimensions work for a layer cake.
Thanks to Judy L. at Patchwork Times for hosting Design Wall Monday.
Be sure to visit McIntyre Girl's blog. Besides being a quilter and hosting the Garden Fence quilt along, she just gave birth to her 3rd daughter.
I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
