PROJECT ELEVENTY-SEVEN


This is a new line of fabric out called "Little Gatherings" by Moda.    I really like the earthy colours of this line.
It should make a nice man's quilt.  Tonight I started playing around with this block.  I think I like it!



Each of the prints is quite tiny so they would lend themselves to the civil war era quilts quite nicely. I got myself some fat quarters, but I'm thinking that's not enough.



Also, we have a new baby in our church, little Jessica Grace.  I think EVERY baby needs a hat and this one is no exception.  I missed her baby shower but will have to give her mamma the goodies this Sunday.


Have a great week-end.

Hi Carla, I have to say that although I'm in a brights phase I love those colours, they are so tranquil and soothing! Also I think the block you did pkays to their strength - subtle yet elegant... And the hat is cute ;) take care x

Debbie said...

I love the Project Eleventy-Seven block, do you have pattern or pictures of a finished quilt top? Also I absolutely love the saying on your blog "God doesn't point to our sordid past and say "Don't live that way anymore. No, God cups our face in His nail-scarred hands and says, "My child, you don't have to live that way anymore". Is the above quote yours? I would love to use it but only for personal use or maybe to post on Facebook, I don't have a blog. Sheilah Cyr

I would also love to have this pattern. Is there a charge for it> Let me know or e-mail the direction to me at kay.myers@rocketmail.com. Thank you Kay Myers

Unknown said...

Yes, add me to the list that would like to have the pattern for the intertwining block. Did you make a full quilt out of it? Making quilt for new granddaughter and looks like what my "modern minded" daughter would like.

Hi Carla. Thank you for sharing this block. I can see how it has been constructed but I am not very good at working out measurements myself. Would like to use this block in quilts that I make for a charity called 'Aussie Heroes Quilts and Laundry Bags' (sent to our troops in overseas deployment). May I have your permission to do so and can you give me the measurements for the block please. Thank you again for the lovely things you share on your blog. Hugs, Nanna Ray.

Hi I just came across your block and I have been scouring the web for a simple block for a modern quilt. And this one just fits it. Would it be possible to have a copy of your pattern? Thank you
