block party in progress
I'm done with all the blocks (20) for a pattern called "Block Party". This is just four of them to give you an idea of the colors and pattern. It's from American Patchwork and Quilting's October 2005 Issue. It's designed by Jason Yenter of In the Beginning Fabrics. Anyway, I figured I was close to done. I just needed to cut up the blocks into fours and add sashing pieces to create a "window" effect. I asked my husband what he thought--should it be bigger? It's for a friend's wedding and I mentioned that it could be a "snuggle on the couch" quilt, or, if it was bigger, it could be a bed quilt. His response: "a bigger quilt does not prevent snuggling on the couch". So sayeth the expert in snuggling! :) So I need to create another ten blocks (it was four blocks by five blocks before). Good thing I have plenty of time for this one, and quite a bit of fabric. I might not post many updates, as I don't want to give away the surprise!
