Teal Repro Crosses


I put some teal reproduction scraps to work this week - making quarter log cabin blocks for my Modern Crosses quilt.

When I started making these blocks, I had lots of neutral-colored fabric scraps (chunks) to use for the backgrounds.  I've just about run through the scraps and will have to start cutting yardage.

My design wall is currently empty, so I should pin all these blocks up and start thinking about the finished quilt.  I only need two additional color groups (orange and brown) to wrap up my plans for this quilt.

On a completely different note, I pulled out a UFO this week and made plans for finishing it.  I started these Grandmother's Choice blocks in 2012, a BOW created by Barbara Brackman.  All 49 blocks have been marinating since August of 2013, so maybe I can finish assembling them by August this year!

  1. Wow, lots of really awesome blocks in that Sampler. What size are the blocks? Will you sash them? I’ve pulled out my Farm Girl Vintage blocks from a few years ago and intend to get that project finished in the next quarter. Too many UFOs! I want to start next year with a minimal backlog. Have you been bitten by the UFO bug too?

  2. Teal is one of my favorite colors and your Modern Crosses quilt is a pretty design. The sampler quilt was a surprise to find on your blog. I wasn’t expecting it but it is nice too. Can’t wait to see how you finish it.

  7. Wonderful cross blocks. I've been looking at doing something with that block for a young cousin. And your sampler is going to look fantastic! Very worthy of the effort!
