New blocks.....finally

Hello Everyone,

In between making blocks and writing pattern directions, I finally have something to show from my efforts for the new Summer's Blush quilt.  This quilt is going to be totally scrappy.  I make the points in the block using a 7" square of fabric.  I'm sure all of us have lots and lots of 7" squares.  I know I do!

This is my favorite block so far.  I love the combination of pink and black together.  I just may make one with a pink pinwheel center and black points in the star.  This is a simple block that gets easier and easier.

Some of the pinwheel centers will be the same as I make them in matched sets.  I'm also pulling the colors in that I used to make the hexagon flowers.  I still have to select the fabric for the flanges on the setting triangles.  I've narrowed the fabric selection for the sashing down to two.  I'll reveal my selection later on this week.  Hint, hint, it is going to involve black.

Starting a new quilt from a pattern you've already made once before can still be just as fun and challenging as the first time around.  This quilt has a unique personality that reveals itself with each completed block and flower.

I have three pages of written directions so far.  Now I just need to get my scribbles into the computer and make some sense out of them.

As always,



  1. The pink and black ARE so striking! Very pretty. Super scrappy is my favorite!

  2. I'm loving the look of this already, specially the pink and black block, and I think a block made in the reverse colours will look stunning.
