Man, I’ve been trying to do this post for days now but for some reason I just can’t get my photos to upload–this is what I have been getting:
Lovely right–anyway, I think that I have finally gotten chite (that’s pennsylvania dutch for decent/right) enough photos to share with you–now that your eyeballs have been burned from the images above! =)
Anyway, I have been playing around with these little blocks:
They are basically little log cabin type blocks starting with a 1 1/2″ square & finishing at 3 1/2″. I made this block:
for the Sew New to Me VQB based on this wonderful block. After completing it I wanted to play around a little bit with the 3.5″ blocks. I sewed up a bunch of the little colorful ones up above and turned them into this block:
Fun right?–this block is a 12.5″ block and is perfect for using up scraps–you need a total of 16 of the 3.5″ blocks–1/2 starting with a white block and 1/2 with a colored block.
Then I decided to try out an orange/purple/gray colorway and go bento-style. I admit I wanted to try out some of my new Nellie’s Garden fabric as well as my new Farmdale fabric & they mixed so perfectly with Hope Valley.
I am really digging this colorway and am hoping that my Quilting Divas Bee does a 2nd round because I think this may be the colorway I end up with.
I also noticed that this new quilt pattern by Jaybird Quilts is basically the same block on a larger scale. It is such a fun little block to play around with. =) You really can come up with a myriad of options.
