Wanda's January Blocks

I had quite a bit of fun with these blocks. With the first one, I tried to switch up the texture a bit with a fun green microfiber, but it gave me some problems once I started pressing and sewing and pressing and sewing...but that's ok! Perfection is over rated!

February Blocks

See my blog post here. You'll be able to get an idea of what the finished quilt will look like. I have all your fabric cut (the white [Kona White] and gray [Kona Coal]) but would like to know if anyone will need any scraps to finish it. I'm wanting you to use your scraps, and I think I'd like a whole range of colors/patterns/etc, but more heavilly weighted towards saturated colors and not as many pastels, etc.

I have lots of scraps, so if anyone needs me to send any along (you'll need enough to make 4 blocks, which then go toether to make one 14" block). The blocks start out at 10.5" long each since the scrappy part is on the diagonal. I just did them in a scrappy strip style. I didn't piece with paper either...just sewed each piece onto the next. I'm not super concerned with them being precisely straight...just straight-ish, and would like a mix of thin strips and larger strips. But more larger than thin so you can really see the prints.

I'll be happy to answer any questions anyone has also! I'm going to put up another post with a mini-tutorial as to how I altered the original tutorial either later today or tomorrow.

Let me know about the scraps and I'll get those packages out. Thanks ladies!

Wanda's Blocks for January

Nittany Block Party 2

Nittany Block Party 1

I only had one fabric in my stash that had people on it, so I chose a chicken for my second block. I love that chicken fabric. So much so I have about 7 yards of it ;) Heh... The two outer fabrics of the chicken block are some of my favorites from my stash. That purple batik is very rich in color. I used the red fabric to make my wallet.

I can't wait to see all of these together, Wanda. These should be in the mail tomorrow.

More blocks for Wanda

I had so much making these blocks this evening and enjoyed using up some precut strips from my last three quilt projects.  The fabrics are primarily Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett.












I hope these work for you, Wanda!  I'm looking forward to seeing how your quilt comes together :).

Blocks for Wanda

At first I thought that I didn't have any people fabric, but when I got to the very depths of my stash I found some old (and super cute!) fabric that belonged to my Mom.  I made these blocks with them:





Wanda - btw, I just realized that we are in three block parties together!  I guess we will become triple friends.  ;)

These are 2 very different blocks. I hope you like them. I will be getting them in the mail tomorrow.

big blocks

Okay, so I had a little success there. I would love to be able to post all the block pictures that size but i don't know how to do it. My son showed up and said I was working with pictures that were to small. Since I took the pictures of Carla's blocks I was able to make them big enough, but with Beth's wonderful blocks I couldn't figure it out. Beth, could you send those pictures over to this blog? I want everyone to see them in big size! Wanda

new blocks




Here are a few of my new blocks from Carla. Wonderful!!!
I am still trying to get the hang of this posting stuff. Please be patient and don't laugh to loudly.
