And I don't remember if I ever showed these here, but these are the five 18" blocks. I added the smaller blocks for scale ;)
And lets not forget the 12" blocks.
And the ever so cute 6" blocks!!!
And of course, as I start to see one project coming to a close, it is time to start a new one!!! Did you all see the announcement of the new APQ Quilt Along on Moda Lissa's blog yesterday?? I totally missed last years and knew right away that I wanted to join in on this one!!!
And I was so excited when I saw that it was 4-Patches!!! You see, I have gone to 5 markets and each time I get some of these adorable Candy Packs. They were really starting to stack up on the shelf and while they looked super cute I felt like it was time to start using them. And then last week a good friend showed me how she does her leaders and enders. Now I have heard that term used a lot but never gave it much thought. Ya, kicking myself for not thinking about it out sooner. So can you see how this is all coming together perfectly . . . Candy, Leaders and Enders, 4 Patches, Perfect!!!!
So last night I threw them all in this little basket, switched on Pride and Prejudice, and started sorting. And before long . . .
I had a stack of empty cardboard backs and paper sleeves and lots and lots of lovely piles!!! Okay, so I know you are going to ask why each color has 3 piles so let me explain. The first row are strictly tone on tone prints. The second row are prints that read a certain color but have other colors mixed in with them. The third row and strictly color/white prints that I have decided to pull out to make another project with. And lastly, the two rows on the bottom are white background prints with lots of colors and low volume prints. Yup, call me crazy, apparently 10 color piles isn't enough for me, I need 30 :)
I haven't decided yet what design I want to follow along with for the Quilt-Along and it doesn't actually start until February . . . but I can start making 4 patches now and see where it takes me ;) These will be great leaders and enders while I put the Modern Building Blocks together ;)
And speaking of Quilt Along's . . . check back tomorrow for the first announcement on the Irish Chain Quilt-A-Long!!! I am so excited ;)
