Hi everyone, Here is another block for Gayly. I used the pattern from the Quilter's cache website. I know the fabric was an oops but I think your quilt is going to be awesome. It reminds me of a rainbow!
I will get this in the mail tomorrow-
Today my mom brought over the vintage sheet for my backing and all that stuff. I just read on Red Pepper Quilts the easiest way to baste it all! Two words: Masking Tape and Safety Pins. (Isn't that actually 4 words?) Anywho, now I just need to get myself some nice cotton batting (or wadding for those of us who are Brits at heart!) and I'll be on my way!
January's got just 1 week left...Iva, are you making plans yet??
Have a great week everybody!

I made the same block for me except I had to add some flowery fabric for me! I laughed when I read Linda's blog the other day. She says it's a stretch for her to use colorful fabrics and more than two colors (one white.) I don't think I've ever used two colors in a whole quilt, so you all who make me use just two are stretching me! I used every last scrap of what you sent, Gayly. I know it was a mistake that you ordered it, but it actually looks like something I would pick! Anyway, here are my four blocks:

Ok, I think you all received my CRAZY fabric in the mail. If not, drop me an email and I'll send you some! BTW, you are free to keep what is left from the block... I still have 10 yards of it! I guess that is what happens when you make mistakes ordering online:)
I actually think you guys are going to make it into something unique and awesome, I have faith in you and can't wait to see your creations!
The first thing you need to do is pick on of the colors in the fabric and get a solid coordinate. I'd like the blocks to be 2 fabric blocks only. Then pick a 15" block- pattern of your choice. I do really like different types of star blocks but I am open to anything you choose! (finished- 15 1/2 inch unfinished)- I know that is huge but I'm trying to use up the fabric and I actually think it will turn out pretty cool! There are several great patterns here: http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeD.html
Happy Sewing! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Happy New Year!
