A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the 60 Blocks of Summer group on Flickr. This members have pledged (although “pledge” seems too strong of a word) to make at least 60 quilt blocks this summer. Some folks are doing more (way more) but I’m going to see if I can make 60 by September 23rd (the official end of summer).
(Were there enough parentheticals in that last paragraph?) (Yes? OK, then.)
I had an idea for a new quilt I want to try to make. I had seen this wonky star tutorial and loved it. I pulled some fabrics from my stash, and decided to make a decent size lap/throw quilt using the wonky star block.
These are the first two blocks I made:
I really like the pomegranate background. But the more I though about it, the more I wanted to see how these blocks would look on a white background. So I made a couple more:
I really like these. Really, really like these with the white background. I’ll still use the purple blocks – most likely for pillows – but I’m going to move ahead with the white blocks for the quilt. I’m thinking I need 20 total (for a 4×5 layout). I’ll most likely sash these with white and add solid color cornerstones. I’m so excited to get going!
