I showed some of these blocks on my design board on my previous post.....well, here it is all sewn up together. If I decide to leave it like this and just bind it....it will measure 60" x 60"-ish. Mr. Brown Dirt has told me MORE than once..."I don't like square quilts"....."can't you make it more oblong than that?" So....he got me to thinking.....I may add a type of border at the top and just the bottom.....I'm thinking some 'spikes'.....???? maybe ????
I started out wanting to use some of my fruits fabric Mr. Brown Dirt bought me a couple of Christmases ago into every block....see here....love those blueberries.........well, I didn't manage to get fruit in all of the blocks.
Oh LOOK......some of my new Kaffe Fassett jumped in there........Heavenly!!!
I think this is probable my favorite block!!! Look Nanette....CHERRIES!!! It really just came to life when I added the B/W batik half squares to the corners. Thank you GAIL...this is some of the fabrics you sent me....Perfect for this block!!!
I really loved this quilt design. I don't know if you noticed or not but I have 3 different style blocks in this quilt. If you follow the instructions in the book...ALL of your blocks will look like my third photo with the blueberries....BUT....the blocks in their sample quilt in the book looks like my first and last photos....sort of like a buzz saw effect. SO.....if you make this quilt and follow their instructions your quilt is not going to look like Gwen's photo in the book. I played around with my template and came up with three different blocks. At one point I was going to make three different quilts using all the same block types.....but in the end I said "NAH"...I'll just throw them all in together. I think it turned out ok.....I.LIKE.........And I LOVE this book!!!
