This is block #9 called Dove in the Window. This is the first time that I've sewn this block. When I completed the block, I thought I should have put a pink square in the center. Oh well, it will stay as is. I still like it.
This is block #10 called Idaho Beauty. I love star blocks and how on this block the stars interlock with each other.
This is block #11 called Stair Step. After I completed the block I noticed that the center diagonal layout resembled hearts. Love the cuteness of that.
Last block, #12 is called Grape Basket. I tend to not do basket blocks because I don't like some of the instructions that goes along with it but this was so easy. I LOVE it!
What comes with sewing half square triangles? Leftover fabric scraps in various sizes. I couldn't bear to throw them away so I made half square triangles. Some are as small as 1 1/4" square and larger ones 2 1/2" square. I will have to think of what to make with them before they get lost in my never ending to do list.
Phew! That was a lot of half square triangles to sew. Sure glad the blocks are all done. Now I am going to start piecing the top and backing together so the quilting can be done.
I would like to thank the following companies:
Fat Quarter Shop for doing this quilt along. It's for an excellent cause. If you have been on the fence about it, don't be. Go get the patterns and start sewing!
Fabri-quilt for the fabrics that I won to make this quilt with. The fabric collection is called Marblehead by Ro Gregg.
