Blocks

So this week, I've been trying some new things (new to me -- probably old to everyone else out there) and not really focusing on any one thing in particular.  I tried log cabin blocks, and a few others too.   I don't know that I'll make a quilt out of any of these, at least not right now, but I'm having fun making the blocks.




 This is my favorite ...

However, I realized that I need a project.  I had bought a spiderman sheet at a thrift store to make a quilt for my grandson so I'm going to make it.  Shay suggested I do a wonky block .. so I tried my hand at it.  Here's the first block.  I need to work at my wonky ..


and I don't think the red sets spidey out the way I want, at least not this red fabric (of course the sheet is faded).   Anyway, this is what I will be working on next.

That adorable little turtle is my favourite.

There's a sew along going around the blogosphere called the farmers wife quiltalong, you get this book

and make two blocks a week from coordinating fabrics. I've seen some very nice ones in modern fabrics - your purple and white swirl reminded me of them.

I love all your blocks. I'm toying with the idea of doing a sampler quilt. I always said I would never make on but I'm starting to waver.
I loved making my wonky blocks quilt.

I think your wonky block looks wonky in the nicest possible way. I love the idea of doing blacks and then putting them all in one quilt. Kind of a mish mash of creativity!

Oh I love that little turtle...she is sooo cute.
I like the rest of the blocks and I am very fond of samplers. I am working on one too.

Nice looking blocks, Thea! I especially like the turtle and the snail's trail blocks.
