Design Wall 10-15-12

Rats!  I'm working on secret stuff again so I can't post a picture of what I'm working on.  So, I will post a picture of the quilt made from these blocks that I showed last week. 
One of the retreaters taught us how to make this block... which produces two blocks at a time.  We all made at least one block and she made them into baby quilts to donate to our normal charity.  
This looks like sherbet to me.  Yum! 

And here is one with bright fabrics.  I believe we had enough blocks to make 3 baby quilts.  Really a fun, easy block.  If you want more inspiration go to Patchwork Times to visit design walls across the internet. 

On to my weekly goals:

I'm not putting a whole lot on the list this week. I may pull out a UFO to use as a leader ender while working on Scrap Squad #5.  I like what I've done with it so far.  

Happy Quilting All! 


  1. A late congratulations on being picked for the Scrap Squad. I loved your posting. This block here is interesting as well. You sure are busy!!

  2. These blocks make darling baby quilts - so clever of your group to use them for that project rather than have orphan blocks.

  3. Every time I see that block it reminds me of Texas - great stuff.
    Look forward to seeing your scap squad quilt. Congrats on being picked.

  4. Great pattern, really like the last one make the pattern really shine.

  5. Looks like a fun quilt block to make.

  6. Tis the time of year when secret projects begin to appear! Love the pieces you've put together with these modified pinwheels! So fun!! And your colors in both of them are delightful!!

  7. what a cute block and quilt! awesome that you get two blocks when making it!

  8. How very cool! Do those blocks have a name?

  9. What a great block. Is it strip pieced? Looks like a quick and easy quilt to make for a charity quilt: always looking for new ones.

  10. I agree - Great pattern! Can you share? Perhaps a tutorial?

  11. This would be a good beginner project using the Accupquilt. Thanks Bonnie!
