Block 7 LCQA
I have already been asked for "first dibs" on this one. And that was sight unseen, based on the Jelly Roll Quilt along quilt that she bought. .
I have not yet decided on my accent fabric or my outer border fabric. I am thinking a nice neutral mottled tan for the accent fabric and then a rich color -undecided as yet - for the outer border.
This weeks block was designed by Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods. It was a fun block to make and was not difficult. even though it looks complicated. I have discovered that these sampler type quilt alongs really increase my skills and confidence. Since this is only a two block per month commitment, I find it easy to fit in my schedule.
I think my color choices were a touch bland in this block but it will work out fine in the finished quilt. I am sure of it.
I am considering making a sampler from blocks in the Quiltmakers 100 Blocks magazine. As I have issues from last year and this year, I think I could easily make a few samplers. Ha ha.
