I am trying to keep on top of the block swaps that I am participating in, and ultimately for me that means finishing the blocks as the envelopes with fabrics come in the mail box. Once filed they may be forgotten!
Donna from Craftjunk asked for two 10.5 inch blocks featuring simple and fun geometric shapes. Once completed Donna asked for the pre-cut border as provided to be added to each block.
These blocks will be used by Donna to make a quilt for her daughter who is turning 5 in April, and like most little girls that I know, her favorite color is pink.
The layout of the above block is featured in
Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine
and is known as Daughter's Delight
I happened to find this magazine at my local newsagent and could not resist. It is a treasure trove of quilting ideas, and ideal for block swap inspiration. All of the blocks in the magazine finish at 12 inches, and most of them are relatively easy to re-size.
Are you sick of seeing Half Square Triangles yet again?
