I hope to have another couple hundred blocks by the end of the year. Why, since my Circa 1880 quilt is finished? Because I've been inspired by the Circa 1880 Club at Village Dry Goods. Many of the club members are adding what they call 'rogue' blocks, named by my friend Janet of Rogue Quilter ,who is a club member there. Rogue blocks are any block made the same size as the Circa 1880 blocks, and added here and there as little surprises to the quilt. It looks so awesome that I want to make a quilt with rogue blocks, too!! It will undoubtedly have a different setting than the original Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt. Oh...my imagination gets carried away with all the little rogue blocks I can make!
You'd be inspired too! You could see all the innovations and inspirations if you were part of the Circa 1880 Club. Join us! We'd love to have you.
