Another quilted surprise

Virtual Quilting Bee::March

Before we get too far into April, here is my Virtual Quilting Bee block for March.


Kathy asked for log cabin blocks and she pointed us to Gee's Bend and Nancy Crow for inspiration.  She sent the gray and blue polka dot fabric as well as the aqua, blue and brown diamond print.  I am happy to say that all of the other fabrics came from my stash.  I wish I had more gray, but I used my only scrap from the elephant quilt and it was from squaring up the edges!  Funny enough, I didn't piece the block with this orientation in mind.  If you rotate it 90 degrees to the left, you'll see how I pieced it.  When I was finished though, I liked this orientation better.  Quilting just seems to be full of happy accidents for me.

To get an idea of how this quilt is coming together and see more of last month's blocks, check out the flickr group.  I think both quilts are going to look great!



I love the solids everyone's using. I've been having lots of happy quilting accidents lately too.

This one is so very peaceful. I love seeing how each quilt expresses both the personality of the recipient through color and of the block creator through fabric choice and design.


Wow, your quilts are so pretty!!!

I just love the unevenness of the interior pieces. Makes it groovy.


I love the colors you used!


Those colours are eye-poppingly fantastic! I'm feeling inspired to do something aqua and brown.

These are just fantastic together.

I can't believe I skipped all of those sewing lessons with my mother.

You make such beautiful things.
