For my centre block I’m using a fun little block that I recently did for a pattern test for Sandra Healey of Sandra Healy Designs.
I was sure this sweet little cardinal would provide some inspiration for the upcoming clues for each round.
Round 1 was a prompt from Anja from Anja Quilts to use curves. Curves are not my favourite to sew, although Wendy at Piecefull Thoughts of my Quilting Life did a fun tutorial on Improv Curves that I was tempted to try. 😉
Instead I did wonky Curvy Log Cabin blocks;
I was late getting it finished since I snuck away for 2 days at the studio so I missed the linkup.
Then it was Emily at The Darling Dogwood’s turn to choose Diamonds for Round 2.
It was time to add some more colour to my little quilt, so I thought of a stained glass border and so my diamonds were easy to design, but working with those bias edges was a bit frustrating. 😳
Now I’m eagerly waiting to see what Roseanne and Sue from Home Sewn by Us will have for a prompt.
Are you stitching along on this fun challenge? It’s one I look forward to once I discovered it last year on Quilting Gail’s blog.
I’m so glad you stopped by to read my post, love answering comments, and take it as the biggest compliment if you follow my blog. The sign up is on my home page 😄 Carol
