randomness...

After what feels like an eternity of not working on any quilt whatsoever (it's only been two weeks, to be precise, but you know what I mean :)), I finally started a new quilt last night.


I pulled these lovely blues, whites, and grays in record time and decided to go with a classic 16 patch block - I just love the simplicity and old time charm of these blocks.


I'm using Erica's tutorial , her strip piecing technique is so quick with very little waste. I finished 10 blocks last night, I need just 14 more before I decide on the sashing, yay!

Can't wait to see them all on my design wall. But, before I do that, I have to do something about all those small wips, plus some homeless finished projects, on my wall. 


Can you tell I've been into paper piecing lately? And pink, I love pink so very much these days :)


And seeing Lola enjoying all the quilty goodness.

  8. Your sixteen patches will make such a lovely soft looking quilt! And what a pretty collection on your design wall. You could make a sampler with your UFO's!

  10. Oh, I hope another puzzle piece quilt is in the works! I remember the one you did with orphan blocks that was just gorgeous.

    I like the low volume prints you have. I just bought a bunch myself to make a quilt, but I'm still deciding on the pattern I want to use. I am waffling between something from this book, Angles with Ease by Heather Mulder Peterson, or a hst quilt that makes big stars. I like your patchwork with yours. Very very pretty.

  13. Your patch blocks are so sweet! Sometimes it is just fun to putter around and not get in to a big project!

  14. That new quilt will be gorgeous. By the way, i have an strange question, what do you use to keep your blocks on the design wall, tape, pins, magic?

    Thanks
