More blocks for Unconventional and Unexpected

At last, back to my blocks for the quilt inspired by
"Cross"/Four Patch!!

It's been so long since I made any progress so here is a photo
of the quilt 

Now, most folk know I love bright and bold, the more colour
the better for me.

So, I had made a few blocks way back in January which then languished
in the studio. It was time to get busy and make some progress.

Made in the past two days the ones below are bolder than the group
mentioned above, and I had a ball making them!!
I'm going to continue on using KF Collective, AMH anda few fabrics from 
other designers presently giving us the sort of fabrics I love.

Those of you who follow my blog will be seeing these
for the second time I'm afraid!

Now I'm not going for the size of the quilt in the photo,
I think probably five across and six down with the blocks being
11" finished and a decision on whether to border, as the original,
or not, will come when all blocks are up on the wall.
Meanwhile I'm looking through the book trying to pick out
which quilt would be next in line!


  1. So many fabrics, so many colors and so many patterns, I love it!

  2. Your blocks look great and very striking. The KF and AMH fabrics will certainly make a lovely bold and bright quilt. I look forward to seeing your progress :)

    1. Thank you Amorina, I have six more blocks ready to go through the machine, they're quite addictive.

  3. The Cross quilt is on my to do list. Your fabrics are wonderful! Interesting mix of color and scale. How large are the blocks?

    2. Goofed with the reply Helen!! The blocks are 11" finished, the four small centre squares are 4" finished and the strips 1" finished. They go together pretty quickly once the decision of the fabric mix has been made.

  4. This is wonderful...great use of color...I do not mind seeing them 100 times. xo

  5. I think these are splendid -- such a marvelous take on the vintage design. Looking forward to seeing more of these blocks.

    1. Thank you Julie. Moree all ready by the machine and hoping to have these ready for another post on Sunday.
