17 - Comfort Quilt
look of a woven coverlet. Since I'd been planning on starting to cut out the dino quilt that week, it was a perfect opportunity to use some blue, but in the end I decided not to. That week I'd also made a bunny for The Boo for easter, since she is too young for chocolate, and I really wanted to include that fabric in my quilt so I could remember it. Also the block is called Comfort Quilt and pink is a far more comforting colour to me than blue. So the fabrics for this week are from the bunny and green from the puppy quilt.
And since I didn't get around to blogging about the easter bunny I made, here it is:
18 - Union Square
I love the way this block has come out, so fresh looking! The flowers and green in the nine patch are from the puppy quilt, and the white and clouds are from another baby quilt I'm working on. It took me a while to choose the colours for this one and in the end I cut the flowers on the bias so they were the right way up. I really wanted to include them in the block but didn't want them going sideways. I just wish I'd paid a little more attention to my cutting and sewing so that the flowers were better placed within each square.
Another two blocks down, another two weeks into the year. This project sounded so big when I first took it on and now I can't believe we're over 1/3 done!
