Two Block Sets

Got the two pairs of blocks done for the next Stars Around the Garden class:

I've had a collection in my stash of these Pennsylvania fabrics but have rarely gotten into them, so this will be a major stashbuster.


Hope the background fabric holds out on this group. I'm scaling these sets down to 9" rather than 12".

Broke into the beige and green scraps/stash:

Stay tuned for the result.

I also have something to tell/show you about the Gatherings fabric that a *kind soul* sent me in response to my plea. Got that last Blockswapper block done thanks to this person but also am assembling a little quilt top with the rest of what she sent me. Stay tuned for this one as well :-).

Love that green and yellow. It sounds as if you are getting a bunch of stuff done. Looking forward to more pics.

Your blocks look great! I am "staying tuned" to see your finished quilts!

Love these two sets of blocks. I can't even decide which one is a favorite. The colors are fantastic in both.

I've spent some time this evening reading through your blog. I love antique quilts and making quilts from old patterns and reproduction fabrics. As I read along I began to realize we live in (or near) the same city! And I love Little Quilts. I've been thinking about joining their Jo Morton club but have resisted so far - however, seeing all the examples in your blog is tempting me again.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilts!

I love your blocks, especially the beige background blocks. That will be a fabulous quilt. I will stay tuned to see where they go.

Mmmmm . . . I love 'em both *s* I just purchased a little stash of the Pennsylvania type fabrics (my first) Now I'll be on the prowl for ideas such as this to use them in . . . or just leave them on the table to pet.

I had some of the Pennsylvania fabrics but never enough to make a quilt. I like what you are doing with them.

Both sets of blocks are wonderful! Every little bit used helps eat away that stash. I love the Pennsylvania fabrics.

I really love the sparkiness of the top two stars. Those colors are fantastic!
