around the block quilt
This was one of the those quick projects that took me ages to finish. The colors are not ones I usually work with so I had a difficult time deciding how the blocks should work together. I shuffled them around so many times. I kind of hated it and then I loved it.
The heart of each log cabin block was part of a panel that I cut up and then edged with wonky bands of tone on tone orange, green, blue, and gold. The orange is a cross hatch print, while the others are silhouettes of leaves.
The extra spaces around the blocks and the binding are a coordinating brown print that I think looks like little bees buzzing around, but is actually tiny airplanes. I quilted it with gold thread in vertical straight lines.
I think it makes for a great baby quilt. I'm happy that in the end I powered through and kept working on this one. It would have been a shame to let it sit on a shelf unfinished simply because it was bit frustrating in the middle of making it.
It will be listed soon.
