This past week I've gotten several things done. Here are 3 more doll quilts:
Temecula Quilt Company blog. The blocks are their summer stars sew-a-long. I've enjoyed their quick, easy patterns.
This Bricks quilt is the larger version of Tiny Bricks I made in January.
I saw this on one of the blogs I follow, Taryn at Repro Quilt Lover and thought it was sweet. It was also tiny. Those bricks were cut 7/8" x 1 1/4" and finish at .375" x .75". Then I cut out 61 more bricks, almost four times that size, cut 1.5" x 2.5". Look how much larger the second one is! The small one is 6" x 7", the large one 14" x 16".
Then I started on the X Block Swap blocks for the group I put together. There are 7 of us and each person will make 2 sets of 6 blocks for each person, using their preferred theme or colorway. Each person decided if she wanted wide, narrow or middle-of-the-road X's--this determines how you cut the fabrics. Each set of 6 starts with six 10" squares of fabrics, sorted light to dark more or less. They are cut, then the pieces are scrambled--very fun to see what you get! Here are Rhonda's blocks:
This pattern is from Sharyn Craig's book Layer 'Em Up and she has a great little video showing the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJ5tIj6g3tg It takes me less than an hour to make a set of 6 blocks and we are doing 2 sets for each person. My plan is to do one set a day for the next 10 days and I'll be through with this project--until I receive my 72 blocks and get to play with a new quilt design.
While I'm piecing, I work with Leaders/Enders--using pieces at the beginning/end of piecing to create other small blocks as I go. For quite a while I've been making 2" finished four-patches and must have hundreds of them by now. Here is the latest layout to use some of them up:
Don't know what this will become next, but it tames some of those four-patches.
I'm linking up with Judy L's blog--check it out to see what others are up to.
Time for therapy then I can quilt! Have a great week, all.
