When sweet Carla calls...
you just have to say YES!
And a "yes" it was, from me.
I hope your loving 30 Quilt Blocks, in 30 Days, as much as I am.
for every action, there is a reaction!
I'm here to tell you it's true, and I'm sharing my
"Reaction" block today.
This is my sample block. It finishes at 10 1/2" square.
Just 4- 3"x 5.5" blocks of 2 contrasting fabrics.
Carla walks you thru just how to piece these together
I used an "Island Batik" Stack (10" squares) for my quilt.
These "Blushing Blooms" were just waiting for the perfect project!
Pairing up contrasting fabrics, I was able to get everything cut from 1 package of these 10" squares, with a little extra to spare. The biggest extra in the top right corner was perfect for sashing blocks.
The fabric at the top left and bottom right were discarded.
Well, not really...they went into my scrap bag. I find uses for every thread
of these fabulous batiks! LOL!
Add a little sashing...and this is what you have.
Oh how I "LOVE" those colors!
Each and every block in different fabrics.
It's a perfect way to use "layer cake"/"stacks".
This unique pattern got me to thinking.
What about those novelty prints???
Well, our Broncos didn't do very well this year...
(in fact they stunk it up, big time)
but I had just enough scrap fabric for a block.
Then turned that, into a fun little zipper bag.
You can find a tutorial on just how to do that
Hope you've had a little "Reaction" yourself, and want to play with this fun block.
Thanks Carla, for inviting me to play along!
Check out what other fun you can have with 30 Blocks in 30 Days!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
