A New Creation....

I participate in the $5 Quilt Club at the LQS here, & our round came to an end last month, so it was time to creat a top using some, or all, of the blocks we made during this latest round. Awhile back I purchased an interesting quilt book, called "Beyond the Block" & that was my inspiration for this top. I have a border to add, & a plan for that, but here is the finished top....I really enjoyed making this one, but was kind of a rush job this past week, as I had no idea it would take so long, but it was worth it!

Blocks for another project...

Started on some Dear Jane blocks, this have a raw finish of 5 inches, & will be 4.5 when added to a quilt. So far, I have done 8, a mixture of applique, & machine quilting, so far. I don't want to do a whole DJ quilt, per say, but some of the blocks I find interesting & challenging, so here are my first ones, all 8 of them...

One more for now...

Some more to add!

More blocks done!

Once again, it's been awhile, so here's the latest...

Just playing...

Been working on some new blocks, from a few other books & having fun with the whole process. Have some Dear Jane ones done now, that are 5in, raw finish. Then tried one out of a new book & it says 6in finished, but my first one came out much smaller, so will have to play with more of them & see. I am wondering if they mean 6in. raw finish, book doesn't really say, oh well, still like them anyway! Then, I started, last night, playing with some Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks, have two done now, & love them! Saw a recent quilt, using just these blocks, no sashing between, just scrappy, & all the blocks sewn together, then some simple strip type borders added, & I really liked it, so here I am, playing with them now too! Fell in love with a Double Wed. Ring one too, only 4 rings, in shades of mauves, & some pinks, maybe, then a lovely creme fabric background, so may play with that idea later too. So many ideas out there to play with & try, it never ends, & thank goodness for that!

More blocks, of course!

Easy block, my first time doing this kind of block & it went together so easy, love it!

This one went great till you connect the base & the bouquet, that was a bit tricky, but it's done & it's a keeper, & as near to perfect as it's going to get! Love the fabric combos, tried to make them similiar to my wedding colors..

Another easy block, nice soft colors, went together well...
