Pura Vida

I finished up Rossie's blocks today:

and Pura Vida....

(I had to fold this phrase up to fit in the picture)

I made 5" blocks for Aloha and 4" for Pura Vida - this was so fun Rossie!

I can't wait to see your quilt!

Finished Blocks

I finished up Amy's blocks yesterday...

I love this quilt pattern and can't wait to see it all put together.

I made 2 each of the 2", 3 1/2" and 6 1/2" blocks...

and one 12 1/2" block.

opposites for Amy

These are set to be mailed off to Amy later this week.
I opted for the largest size block (12.5") and the smallest (2"). I'm always surprised at how quickly a large log cabin style block will use up fabric. It's easy to forget that those sides get longer fast. That little one with the center dot makes me smile though.
Amy, I hope these get you a little bit closer to a finished quilt top!

Ready for October!

Here are your blocks Amy. I had fun making them again. I made blocks until I ran out of fabric. No big one this time. I can't wait to see this quilt come together!

I think I forgot to post Amber's block from August...oops! Love those tiny shrooms and as usual, great colors, great fabrics!

October is upon us!

Yay! It’s my turn! I am making a quilt like this:

That's a Yoshiko Jinzenji quilt from her book “Simple Quilts.” Genius, huh? I'm making one for my bed. What I need help making are blocks like this:

The trick is, these blocks spell out words using a code! I will mail the fabric out in the morning; included are more detailed instructions and the code.

I hope you enjoy making these: they look more difficult to construct than they are—you just have to dive in! The fabrics are Kona Cottons, which I've over-dyed just a smidgen for a richer, more organic look.

(that says WILD) your blocks will look like this, except longer.

I can't wait to see what you make!
