Simple Blocks

a stack of sixty-three simple blocks
April 2017
Marilyn and I recently had another sister's sewing retreat. I prepared several sewing projects, and I raided my 2.5 inch strip bin to make these simple red, blue, and neutral blocks.

I plan to make the Purple Daze quilt (link for free pattern is under the image), using the silent auction eagle napkins in place of the stars.

  3. How you can trade the blocks is amazing to me. I guess you get better at visualizing, when you quilt all the time! Mine would be such a mess Nancy!!

  5. I know it will be beautiful as everything you make is. It was a great idea to use for the stars. Something I never would've thought of.

  6. Now this is a great way to use up those strips and end up with such a beautiful quilt! The idea of a sister's retreat is a new to me and a great time, I'm sure.

  10. You choose the best patterns for your quilts and exchanging the stars for the eagle napkins is very clever! I'm looking forward to seeing this one go together - it's going to be a beauty!
