You may recall last week Wednesday...during the blizzard... I showed you a photo of some yummy fabrics I was gonna start to play with. Well.....here's what I've been up to.
Isn't this a cute block? Simple, fun and fast but cute as can be. I love the combo of fabrics. The assorted shirtings, the bubblegum pinks, reds, blacks and blues. Makes my quilty heart sing. Perhaps I'm easily amused.....I don't know...but why question it?
I thought the red and blue blocks would make a mighty fine patriotic quilt, too! What do you think? This quilt is for a special event I'm participating in over the summer....July I think. So, I won't be able to show you the whole quilt when it's done....not just yet anyway, but I plan on making extra blocks to make a small bonus quilt. And, when that one is finished, I will definitely post photos and instructions for you...in case you'd like to make one for yourself.
I have to set this project aside until next week. Tonight (Wed), I'll be visiting the Pieces 'N Patches Quilt Guild in Steger, IL....so if you're in the area, please stop on by! We'll be at the Steger Community Center.
Leave your comment before midnight on Saturday, Feb 12th and I'll announce the winner on Sunday. Enjoy your day!
P.S.....just wanted to encourage you all to participate in the contest no matter where in the world you live! The contest is open to everyone...no worries!
