This year I hope to make 3 different blocks in the colour of the month. The resulting quilts (when they are made) will be for Stitching Hearts.
1. Twinkler Stars.
I have seen this block around a lot on the web. It has a few names, Twinkler Star and Friendship Star are two that I know of. This is what I have made:
I made one large one which is 11" and 2 smaller ones at 6.5". I will try and make a couple more of smaller ones as I think I will need at least 40 to make up a small lap quilt, the size we make at Stitching Hearts.
My inspiration came from Quilt Fabrication, but I did not use the size in her tutorial. I made the large one with 4" coloured squares, because I have loads of them, and 2.5" white, and the small one with 2.5" coloured squares (I have loads of those too) and 2" white. In retrospect, I think I should have used 1.75" squares for the white on the small one, but never mind, it looks good enough for me.
2. Crossroads Block.
The tutorial for that in 3 sizes is at Freemotion by the River. I made up the largest which is 12", because I wanted to use some of the 2.5" strips in my scrap bins.
3. Bow Ties.
Still to come.....
Not quite blue, more teal is this quillo top I have finished quilting this week.
I quilted it rather heavily, outlining all of the cute little figures in the print.
Very happy with the result. I finished the pocket this afternoon, but my air con is out of action at the moment, and by 4pm it was so hot, I couldn't stand my work room any longer, so I still have to sew it on to the quillo.
It is the first of the quillos I am making for a family of 4 kids. Sucker for punishment eh? LOL. You will see the others as they appear.
Linking up with the link party at soscrappy tonight.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
