I got this week's block finished today. Amazing, eh? Since it was a 12" block, I made it in my Red, White, and Blue color combination.
I may actually be able to finish a quilt or two using the "Block Party" blocks this year! My decision to use more controlled scrappy palettes for each of the block sizes was a good one.
I do like some of the blocks I made last year, and no doubt my piecing skills got a LOT better, but I have far too much variation in color and pattern of the fabrics. I need to spend some time thinking of good settings for wildly disparate blocks. Seems a shame to just let all those orphan blocks languish in their plastic prison!
The second block I did today is from week 17, it is a simple "Puss in the Corner". Quick and simple - took about half an hour. A few more simple 12" blocks and I'll have a quilt for July!
