I've been making quilt blocks from a little book that came with Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine a month or so ago. There were 20 blocks to showcase the Amy Butler Hapi fabric range. I wasn't using these fabrics but some others that I'd bought, and consequently 2 of the blocks in the booklet weren't really suitable - 1 was identical to another but with a different colour way and the other used a couple of identical patterns in different colour formats and that didn't work with my fabrics. So I've made 18 of the 20 but that's a good start for a quilt top, don't you think? Here are the last of the blocks, finished this weekend.
I've decided that I will make a couple more blocks using these fabrics as actually turning them into a quilt seems a bit daunting! I mentioned before that I'm taking part in the Little Blog Quilt Bee and so will need to make some blocks that I haven't come across before. I thought I could practice each one using the fabrics I've been using for these blocks. First up is a Wonky Star block so I will hopefully have a go at that during the week. I'm not working this week because of half term so let's see how much sewing I can fit in around the kids....
I'll be linking up with Handmade Monday for my weekly fix of crafty inspiration!
