I’ve really enjoyed seeing my pile of blocks gradually grow…and suddenly it seems there’s a large stack! I mean look at how many posts you can already look back on! Here are the links to check out my earlier Happy Flower quilt along blocks: blocks 1-4, blocks 5-6, blocks 7-10, blocks 11-14, blocks 15-18, blocks 19-22.,blocks 23-27.
Is this weird and is this just me?? But things like this that you’ve worked so hard on start to take on a personality of their own. It feels this has become a precious quilt even before it’s assembled. I love the bright colours and all the complicated shapes that have pushed me out of my comfort zone, to practice and learn new skills.
This is block 33 all spread out. And sometimes I like to count how many pieces are involved in one of these multi pieced types, because I it makes me feel more accomplished when I get it done lol. This block has 28 pieces…yup.
This one was a doozy, because all those angles just wanted to go their own way. At least I got to daydream about doughnuts and gingerbread and crispy things while I was making it.
Block 34…indulging my inner pink self, and going totally feminine for this one bunch of tulips. I love the pink dot background, the pretty petals, and the minty green of the leaves.
Block 35…the next pieced block, and only half the pieces of block 33. Yay, I was ready for an easier one! I love all the clashy colours. There’s just something about yellow and orange and purple together.
I had fun improvising an ombre effect for this block, using a selection of nearly all the greens I owe. I might need to rectify that imbalance!
I made the stem slightly wider to incorporate this lovely fabric with leaves and flowers on it, that echoed the rest of the block. I love it when after stash diving, you discover gems that have been long forgotten. It’s like a free trip to the fabric shop!! This happens to me a fair bit, and I really don’t have that much fabric.
Onward and upward! How is everyone going with their blocks?
