October Block Report

While I've been doing hand stitching and working towards finishes a lot recently, I've also been trying not to let any project fall too far behind. Slowly, my 9 Positively Perfect Nap blocks have turned into 30, and the next set of 30 is underway.

It's funny how pictures can show you things you don't see looking at a layout in person. I just noticed there is a blue dot next to a blue plus!

I've also been working on some charity block projects with my quilt guild. For October the guild chose two lime green fabrics for Lyme disease. There was one modern and one traditional fabric, and we were allowed to add blacks and whites. The blocks are going to be assembled into two quilts and then auctioned off to help raise money for the cause.

Traditional Ohio Star (left) and Tula Pink inspired modern (right) quilt blocks.

We just got our fabrics for November, so I'm sure there will be another block report soon!

  1. You are so right when you say a photo will show you things that just looking will not. I have had that experience with my latest quilt-things looked great and I stitched all my blocks together, photographed it for my blog and noticed all kinds of things I would change if I had it to do over!

  2. Photos are a really useful tool for spotting things the eye on its own misses. I like your modern green/white/black block with the crossword print - very striking.

  3. It's amazing how reducing a quilt down to a small size through photos or looking through the "wrong" side of binoculars can help you see variations or irregularities. I really like your layout with the dots between the pluses. I like the idea of making a traditional and a modern quilt for a fundraiser. They'll appeal to a wide range of tastes.

  4. Did you know that you can shorten your urls with Shortest and get cash from every visitor to your short urls.
