WIP Wednesday - 4/23/13

This week I've been working on finishing up my quilt for the BlockBase Sew Along.

BlockBase Sew Along_Quilt Top

The top is a bit busy, but all those bright colors just make me so happy! My blocks are two different sizes- 10" and 5". Sewing the blocks at different sizes makes a sampler-type quilt a bit more fun to work on. And it can give you more interesting options for the final layout too!

Here's my favorite block from the bunch:

I'll be starting a new sew along over on the Do You EQ blog next week called the EQ7 Summer Drawing Series. If you have EQ7, and are interested in drawing your own blocks, I'd love for you to join us!

  3. I think it looks lovely! IIMHO sample quilts look better for being busy because it stops them looking like an odd collection of random blocks. Yours is beautiful:-)
