This is what is on my design board - St. Louis 16 Patch quilt blocks. Blocks are not yet sewn together. I have been moving them around to find the best arrangement. Now that I have uploaded this image I am not quite sure I have it yet. If I switch the 3rd block in the first row down one and the 2nd block in the 4th row switch it one up this would position the blocks with coral being in every other block.
Please feel free to weigh in on this! Hubby came in to my quilting studio as I was standing and pondering. Overall he thinks it looks too busy. So I went on a search hunt for St. Louis 16 Patch blocks in Pinterest - even created a separate board for them. Check out the St. Louis 16 Patch Board here. Some are more organized and some are just as wild as mine. I think I will titled it the "Wild Flower Garden."
While prettying up the images on picmonkey I played with different colors for the frame borders to get a feel for the best color for binding. Most of the fabric colors have a certain amount of gray in them so I am leaning towards a blue gray or green.
I love the pattern instructions for this block as created by Sew with Sass by SK Burton Designs! It is almost fail proof especially when it comes to matching seams.
Look how nice the back side of each block turns out. So neat!
Progress on the Star Blocks
How many line quilting designs can one come up with? It just happened - very improv! The only thing I am concerned with as I go along the quilting is becoming more dense.
Don't you love this wonky star with the fussy cut center? This little star was outlined and then broke out into rays of lines.
Look what came in the mail today!
It was a giveaway won at 627 Handworks, sponsored by Julie Hirt, during Sunday Funday giveaway party. Squeal! Look at how it was packaged with bright colored block tape on the outside of the envelope. The wonderful Aurlfil thread was wrapped in brown paper with blue and white twine. Even her business card is a wonderful expression of her creativity. Can't wait to use the thread.
If you haven't already seen Julie's Lattice Bones quilt you must go check it out! It is a Wowser!
