Last night I sat down to my computer and realized I deleted a bunch of pictures taken while making quilt blocks 10-12. To say I was livid at myself would be an understatement. This is like the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve done that in the last couple years but it is still infuriating, especially when you like pictures like I do. If you’ll notice the above picture is a picture I took of my computer screen with my phone. The picture below on the other hand are all my quilt blocks kind of laid out on my grandma’s bed in the same order roughly as the picture above. Grandma’s bed really isn’t big enough to get them all to lay out.
Since I deleted all those pictures, I have the above 2 and the finished quilt blocks… that’s it. grrrr. Anyway, This is Quilt Block 10. My daughter picked out the chevron pattern so I took it to grandma’s and we decided to use it on this pattern along with the gran and ink as accent colors. This is one of my favorite blocks even though it isn’t nearly as bright and colorful as some of the previous blocks. If I remember, this quilt block was pretty straight forward and sewed together quite easily.
Quilt Block 11. Looking at this picture, I can’t figure out why on the edges there are those lines where it looks like a seem in the long piece, but there isn’t. Must be the material wasn’t totally ironed out and it is just an optical illusion. This particular quilt block gave me problems and I wound up tearing it apart multiple times because my seems wouldn’t line up. I got quite frustrated with it.
Quilt Block 12 turned into one of my favorite quilt blocks. It is called Jacob’s Ladder. I’ve actually heard of that pattern multiple times before. When I sent the picture to Mark, he thought it was yellow, but it is in fact a green color. The other color is purple. My phone did some weird things to the lighting on this pattern. I wish I had the pictures out of my camera, again, very sore subject with me. I am slowly getting caught up with the weeks these are posted. This is one of those blocks that give me slight heart palpitations… it’s 18.5″ x 18.5″ instead of 12″ x 12″. I am going to embrace it!
So bring on the next patterns!
