Quilt It Challenge – 2nd Quarter

It’s that time again.

qi PicMonkey Collage 150 (1)Time to make your blocks for the next quarter for the Quilt It Challenge.

We are using Sarah’s Choice for the next 3 months:

Sarah’s Choice

Choose the 12 inch block so you have a decent size block to work with. I also added a border to practice border designs as well.

Here is a sampling of my block for this quarter:

Sarah's Choice I didn’t have enough of the rust fabric to use for the entire border, hence the corner squares.

I find it easier to make all three at one time and I have deliberately used the same colors so I can see how quilting the same block differently changes the looks of the overall block, as shown in my blocks from the 1st quarter.

PicMonkey Collage Redone (800x267)I practiced straight lines, circles and paisley in the first quarter and while I am not sure what direction my quilting will take this next quarter, I hope to build on what I have learned so far.

Details for the previous months are here for January, February and March.

Come join Kitty Pearl and me.

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
