My plan is to do Monochromatic Blocks and then put them in an Irish Chain Layout. I know, you are super surprised with my love for Irish Chain Quilts ;) So when it is all done, it will look something like this, although I haven't decided on the final size I want it to be, so this could shift a bit, but it gives you the general idea.
I hope to share blocks each Saturday (although, I know I am going to miss some ;) and am so excited to watch this come together throughout the year . . . I hope you will pop in on Saturday's and share in watching this Splendid Rainbow take shape ;) And with that . . . Let's get to this weeks blocks.
First off, the Hearts Aflutter Block designed by Pat Sloan. I used fusible raw edge applique for the center heart and opted for a slightly different design of heart because I could cut this one out with my Slice, so it was super fast ;) And of course, I didn't notice that little bit of lint on the picture until just now, oh well ;)
And Second, the Wings Block by Jane Davidson. Those little blocks are 1" finished. how cute is that!!! I did free motion quilting for the little antenna on my home machine. It was super easy and I always love the opportunity to do a little FMQing on my domestic machine since I mostly use the long arm now. So fun!!!
And those are this weeks blocks!!! And super fun news . . . Tomorrow I get to share the block I designed for this fun Quilt Along!!! Be sure to pop in to see the fun story behind it, some tidbits on helping you to make the block, and a super cute bonus mini ;)
