Going Big

Messing around with some new projects around here involving big pieces.

Trying my hand at an oversize Friendship block (#39  Farmer's Wife Sampler) with leftover Tula Pink Plume layer cake squares.  I've been too lazy to install the CD or make any of the blocks, so just started cutting and piecing this one based on how it looked.  Not really happy with the proportions though, so this one will probably be quilted for a quick wall hanging.  

I find making HSTs is so much easier when working with 12" squares!

No trimming required and the seams matched up perfectly.

Orange Delight came together so quickly that I am using the same technique to make another charity quilt, this time for our guild's charity drive.

I really need to finish these by the weekend, so hopefully there will be finished pictures to show soon!


  1. I'm a big fan of that friendship block too! and I really love your fabric choices.

  2. Oh, I'm loving those big blocks! I can't wait to see them finished!

  3. I, too, love your fabric. I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  4. I like your fabrics! pretty stuff!

  5. So that's the HST perfect method! Super big quilts from now on I say!
