This quilt top should come with sunglasses. I know it is crazy bright, but I won this set of blocks at a quilt retreat several years ago. We were each given a small amount of the sashing fabric and asked to make a block. Then several winners were chosen (my block is in the top row, center) and we were given a set of blocks and one yard of the fabric. The request was that we finish the quilt and donate it to a good cause. Honestly, I had forgotten I had this set of blocks until I came across it recently. I pieced them together with the sashing and now I just have to quilt it!
These blocks are so soft and sweet (no sunglasses needed.) I picked up these fabrics on the 'free swap' table at guild a couple of years ago. I made one donation quilt out of the fabrics but had some leftover. I didn't think I had enough to make another top, but I actually do. I do realize that the bottom row has an extra four patch, I ran out of alternate blocks. I'm okay with that. The blocks will finish at five inches, so this will be a great baby quilt for someone. I should be able to get these blocks together and quilted without much trouble at all.
It feels good to make quilts for others doesn't it?
Enjoy every stitch!
