The block found a new home and fame and fortune on Instagram! A couple of folks have asked about the pattern. So here is an experiment since I have never tried posting a pdf file to my blog!
The block is from Electric Quilt 7 – I have been using EQ for quite some time (okay, ever since it first came out!) and I love the versatility of the blocks, designs and layouts that can be accomplished. I have attached a six and seven inch version of the pdf file for your use (disclaimer – I checked EQ7s write up and web page and they say the blocks are not copyright – there are a couple of exceptions and this was not one of them).
I am using Shades of Black from Me & My Sister Designs – the layer cake is from Moda. I am also using a plain purple Kona as well as a Moda Marble Dots in purple to give some variety to the layouts.
And six weeks later we are at block 12! Every Friday Amanda provides two blocks to add to the QAL. She provides pictures of her block as well as alternate layouts for the blocks.
I have been having a great time with the QAL and several of my Instragram friends who are participating. I am not even bothered by the fact that jessicaquilter always gets her blocks done before I do (well, not bothered much I suppose).
Here’s the two most recent blocks 11 and 12 as well as the whole group of 12 that have been made to date.
And we are now up to number 14! The picture to the left includes the newest additions (they are shown in the top left of the picture)! This thing is going to be ginormous!
And tomorrow is Friday so we should be coming to two new ones! Join me sometime this weekend when I post those.
And again, a finish but blogging is way behind! It needs to be quilted but I am happy with the result. There were options for setting the blocks, including sashing and cornerstones, but I went with just having the blocks put together with an outside border. I liked the additional patterns that formed from keeping the blocks together. This was an amazing experience!
Yep, I had to. Quiet play does the most awesome paper piece patterns. I wanted to make this one so badly. I had to enlarge the pattern as the pieces were a wee bit small for me on the original. And it snowed the day I made it so a purple unicorn playing in the grass was perfect!
