How About A Little Color - "Flower Pots"

I have been working on so much red and green fabric I decided I needed a little color in my life.





I really like Kim McClean’s patterns the  pieces  are large,  the curves are gradual and very easy to stitch and she lets the fabric do most of the work for you.


These blocks are only prepped and need to be stitch but it was a nice change to work with some of Kaffe  Fassett’s beautiful fabrics.

Happy Stitching.

BB, CC and NM

I am working on so much red and green sometime it is a little confusing keeping each group of fabric seperate.


This is block two of the Benjamin Biggs quilt, BB.  I decided to make all the corner buds cheddar.  These blocks are so large, 16” finished.  I have made the first two blocks and am beginning to second guess my decision to make this quilt.




Block 18 of the Chester Criswell quilt, CC.
Mary McKissick’s Block.  The quilt has three of this block two red and one red and green.  I think I will stop with two.

                 






The next four blocks are of the Noah and Matilda quilt.  This one is one of my favorites.  I like the little 8” blocks and how different they are.

Noah and Matilda BOM





Some days I feel like I need to hurry up and hurry up.  I just finished the last stitches on the first 4 blocks of Noah and Matilda and today all the February blocks for all the quilts I am making came out and I am already behind again.
Noah and Matilda is the new BOM quilt from Dawn at Collector with a Needle.  If I remember correctly this is the third quilt I have made from one of Dawn's patterns.  She alway does a wonderful job drafting the patterns.  This one she is sending as a BOM.  Four blocks each month for a small fee.   The blocks finish at 8 inches and are set on point.



I haven’t been doing much stitching the past few days as I have my 7 year old Granddaughter staying with me and that’s a different kind of fun.
Happy Stitching,
Nancy
