Playing With Blocks

Here is what was on my design wall on Monday.  I've started making some 16 Patches in plaids and black.  I started making these for a Demo I did at the Quilt Show on Quick & Easy 4-Patches.  After the show, I started sewing them together.  This is all that I had cut.  Now it's time to iron and cut some more before I can work on these more. 

However, these are down off the design wall now, to make room for the corduroy quilt I'm making for National Corduroy Appreciation Day.  That is November 11th.  Also know as 11-11-11, "The Date That Most Closely Resembles Corduroy".  LeeAnn over at Nifty Quilts is having a corduroy quilt-along.  There's still time to join up!  The big reveal will be on 11-11-11, so stay tuned.

Dunkel was being very coy with DH the other morning, peeking over the back of the couch while he basked in the morning sunlight.

I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to check out the wonderful quilts featured at the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy of Amy's Creative Side.  I don't know which I enjoy more, the quilts or the stories that accompany them.  If you haven't checked this out yet, don't be coy!  Click on the button for the BQF on my sidebar, and enjoy!


  1. Great idea - you combine plaids with black! How intriguing ... it looks really great. And Dunkel is a nice little cutie ;-))

  2. Plaids with black are just yummy yummy!!!!

    Silly Dunkel!!!

  3. Wow...I love the quilt blocks! This quilt is going to be great. Sounds like you are keeping plenty busy lately!

  4. I wish I could cut that small!

    Haven't entered the BQF this year. Nothing to show apart from red and white quilts. Might have something for Spring 2012 though.


  5. Very pretty blocks! Love the combo of plaids and black!

  6. When I saw these blocks I was in awe...but didn't comment. Now 6 days later, I am still in awe and must comment this time. I love the looks of them!
    How big are they??
