Sorry I've been so quiet around here lately. I have been busy though. I've had a busy summer, and I've been madly sewing to have a quilt or three to hang in the quilt show in October.
Cheery O's has achieved flimsy status!
60 x 74 inches
The pattern is actually one quarter of a circle, and you need 4 blocks to make a complete circle, which finishes at 14 inches. So making the quilt goes pretty quickly!
I dug into my scrap bins for all the blocks that I made. I didn't even make a dent!
I made a few more blocks to complete the rainbow color scheme I was doing, and the unused blocks will be on the back.
I decided that I needed to make some smaller O's to go in the corners, so I drafted the block out. The quarter squares finish at 3 1/2 inches and the complete circle measures 7 inches. And even though they were small, they were still easy to make.
I made some more blocks to finish the ends of the middle row. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the black on black print I used for the border. I found that at Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon.

The top is currently at my long-armer Shari's, waiting to get quilted. I can't wait to see how she quilts this. I left it up to her, and I know she'll do a great job.

Note his excellent cat hair addition.
I think this block has a lot of possibilities, and would like to play with it some more in the future. Thanks, Sophie, for a fun pattern! Here is the link to the pattern, if you'd like to play with it too.
Now I'm working on another Block Lotto win. Ready to add the borders this week. Here's a sneak peek:
I hope you have a creative week!
