Anyone that has been following my blog for more than a year might remember me making 6 1/2” blocks in red and white as I was making my way through the Sew Happy mystery quilt in 2011. The mystery completed, but I did not complete my quilt.
The blocks have been sitting in a box waiting for inspiration as the original pattern’s layout required the piecing of several 2.5” squares for sashing between the blocks; a process I wasn’t too keen on.
So what to do? In the end I had 63 blocks from the mystery and around about the same time I found myself with 22 signature blocks from my local group which were red and white log cabins. Can you guess where this is going? I got to thinking that perhaps I could find a setting that would encompass the 85 blocks and instead of 2 quilts I could make one. So this afternoon I sat at the computer, drafted the blocks in EQ and started to have a play. This is the layout I came up with. I do like it, but wonder if it will be to busy…what do you think?
Until next time...♥
