Some finished blocks for the next baby quilt

Finished up these fun colorful blocks yesterday.

Finished Blocks

I’m happy with how they came out.  I thought I might be mixing and matching too many different fabrics, but there are a lot of florals and I think the combo of that and the solids ties them all together.  I anticipate doing my usual white sashing and framing but I need to figure out if I’m going to leave the blocks different sizes or trim them down to all be the same size… hmm… Decisions decisions!

There will probably be a bit of radio silence from me for the coming week as I was put on a jury for a trial that will last all week.  However, the days are short so I’m hoping to get a lot of my sister’s curtains and pillows done through out the week!

    Love the combinations! I think the red really ties everything together as well…

    I think your usual white sashing will be simply perfect for your quilt. maybe different sizes of blocks would be fun.

    I just found your website and really love your work. I want to learn to quilt. Can you tell me what kind of machine you use?

    Thank you!
