It started with a quilt I saw in this book 'Imagine Quilts'
I played around with the size of block so I could use a charm pack of low volume prints that I had.
Also, the smallest of scraps were put to use here
Now I need to decide on some sashing. Well would you look at that! There is a blazing oops in one of the rows. Good thing they aren't sewn together yet : )
Have yourself a lovely week end
My nan would have said
A man on a galloping horse wouldn't notice lol
I know, crazy but she was Yorkshire born n bred and had a lot of sayings like that!
I wouldn't have noticed it, had to look for it after youd mentioned it lol
It reminds me of a very pretty barcode pattern!
That is a great quilt design. Isn't it amazing how the camera will find those mistakes for us?
lovely little quilt!
What a terrific use for those little scraps (I may copy you!) And, I know I am feverish with a sore throat today, but I can't see the mistake. Guess I need to go back to bed. :)
Love, love, love! Low volume with little pops of color is the best!
Hi Carla! You have always o great ideas and find fantastic patterns! I love this and now I only need the low volume charm pack. Thank you for inspiration! x Teje
love that arrow quilt and i really love the stable
Yup took me a moment to find the "blazing oops" so I guess it was not so "blazing". Great way of also reducing the scrap stash.
Ooops-a-daisy....I must admit it took a while for me to see your li'l boo boo. More lovely blocks with lovely fabrics, Carla!
I like how the second from bottom, second from right looks like a present with the butterfly wings just poking above the coloured "ribbon".
Fun quilt top!
This is another great scrap buster, isn't it! Photography picks up all the boo-boos, don't you think?
I love how your quilt is turning out! I am visiting on the Blogathon Canada blog hop.
I love, love, love your Arrows quilt - have seen it before (maybe on Facebook or Bloglovin') and fell totally in love with it - did not know until now you're a Canadian quilter! Beautiful work! I'm visiting from the Blogathon Canada hop, and will be one of the blogs participating in the Maritimes portion of the hop tomorrow...
The colors you've used for each block are so happy! That's not an oops, it's the pure charm of handmade :) Popping over via Blogathon Canada!
Well...now that you mention the oops I did find it. Lucky catch on your part. Love the colors. I do need to find more low volumes with lettering and graphics since I tend more towards tone on tone.
I really like this quilt. I'm still saving LV fabrics!
Fabulous quilt and design.Love your fabric combo!
Is it wrong for me to feel excited about finding, that is *going back* and finding, the not-so-blazing oops? As a non-quilter it feels like I'm learning something. I love seeing the way you put your gorgeous quilts together.
Oh, what a lovely combination, Carla. Those low volume fabrics work beautifully in this design. I'm in love with the random bright pops of colour - keeps the eyes moving!
Oooh I really like this. Easy pattern, scrappy, and low volume.
I had to look for your oopsie. But I know in my quilts once I see the "mistake" I can barely ignore it.
Very fun design Carla- like you said at least it wasn't sewn together yet.
I hope things are going well and that you have many new visitors from old and new blogging friends.
Regards from Alberta,
What a nice soft looking quilt.
What beautiful color choices for your quilt blocks.
What a great quilt Carla, loving the low volume.... As usual beautiful...
This is so sweet!! I love the way you incorporated the little pieces of color in the low volume fabrics!
How pretty, Carla. I had to look twice for the oops :-)
LOVE all the fabric assortment going on there.
I'm fairly new to quilting and one of the tips I learnt was to take a photo of all your blocks before sewing them together. That has saved me a few mistakes when looking at the quilt on the pc, for wrong placement or too many of the same colours near to each other etc. Also good to remind myself where the blocks belong if they get moved before sewing back together. And I really like this new quilt; lovely colours :)
that is a very cool quilt!
Okay, so I'm feeling sort of dumb, but is the oops that two blocks were the same in the same row? I can't see that as a mistake, but just a "need to keep moving it around some more." If there is another "mistake," I certainly can't see it in this charming little quilt. I love reading your blog!!
Your quilt is very pretty! What a great way to use charms and scraps. I find it helps to take a picture of my block layout before sewing.
wow, you have such an eye for quilting. It's perfect!
What a great way to use up lots of low-volume prints and scraps! It will be a darling baby quilt.
It's going to be adorable!
Oh, I love these! Not sure how I missed this post, but it looks like you were using the charm squares the same week I used my set! I've just blogged a photo of my creation :-)
Now THAT's what I call adorbs!!!!!
I really love this quilt and how it turned out. You are so clever.
These blocks are so pretty! Love the pops of colour against the low volume. How clever to be able to make them out of charm squares!
