These are just a few of the 80 blocks I have to make, and they aren't even pressed yet. This quilt will be a queen size (80" x 100"), so I have some marathon sewing sessions planned to get these knocked out. These D4P blocks aren't difficult, but they are a little more time consuming than you would think. I guess that's true of any block that you have to sew twice.
This quilt will be for my cousin's wife, who wants to give the quilt as a Christmas gift to her parents (I don't think there's a less convoluted way to say that). She saw my Springtime Blooms quilt and wanted a quilt with the same pattern, and with fabrics that have the same softer colors. I think the Ambleside collection fulfills those needs nicely. So far, I have 55 blocks finished, and I'm hoping to get the rest sewn tonight and tomorrow so I can get the top put together.
Last week's party was ahh-mazing! Y'all are really kicking your awesomeness into high gear with the holidays approaching! I'm positively swooning over this warm/cool AMH Dresden Plate quilt by Maryse Makes Things-
This Modern Maples quilt by Cardboard Boxes and Paper Hearts is such a pretty tribute to the season-
and Cathy at A Quilting Chick linked up a brand new Moda Bake Shop pattern, Night in Old San Antonio (or NIOSA) for short- gorgeous!
