OK, yes I’m stuck on blocks of the month this year. This wasn’t actually a block of the month project, but it had twelve distinct blocks, so why not call it that right? I have all four patterns in this series. I have completed the Winter and Fall quilt and the blocks are done for Spring. The Summer quilt is just a bunch of fabric in a bag with the pattern printed out, but I’ll get there eventually. This post is mostly a photo blog. The blocks speak for themselves. They are from the book “The Quilters Home: Spring” by Lois Krushina Fletcher. I love these quilts. They are a mix of applique, traditional and paper piecing. You can add fun embellishments like buttons and whatever. Just going to get to the blocks and stop writing for a change. It was so much fun picking out these fabrics…it wasn’t overnight. I searched high and low for many of them.
I’ll start with the center three blocks.
There are more, but I just posted my favorites. The blocks are actually pieced into the top and the borders added, so I’ll post the entire quilt top once I enlist some helpers to hold it up for me. It is pretty large and needs some helpers for a good photo. The flowers in the above block will have cute yellow button centers once the quilt is finished.
Until next time, happy sewing & quilting…
