Beebolt Block

In our wonderful Swag bag from the Sewing Summit was a little package from Beebolt.  It contained 9 beautiful spring-ish 3" blocks were to be used to make a 8 1/2" block.  That block will be mailed to Beebolt and then all of them blocks from each Sewing Summit participant will be made into a charity quilt.  You were allowed to use any other fabrics to incorporate with these beautiful prints in making the block.  

I whipped mine up yesterday after having a bit of a lightbulb idea.  I figured, why not try my same concept that I did for the Fat Quarterly block, but reverse it.   So I started with a simple 9 patch.  

Then I slashed and whacked adding in some solid ivory.  So this time the color was in the background and the  neutral was in the intersecting lines.  Fun little change up :)

Then I spun it a bit to give it some wonky goodness and trimmed it down to size.

And here is how it turned out.  I love it!!  I am so looking forward to seeing the quilt that is made up of all this beautiful spring goodness at next year's Sewing Summit.  Which, by the way, has just been announced will be in Salt Lake City on October 11, 12, and 13.  Hope to see you there :)
Pin It!


  1. Very cute block! I need to find the courage to do this. Maybe for TNT Thursday!

  2. I love it! I love the concept of cutting it all up. It seems like it would be kinda fun to do with a whole quilt, although kinda scary!

  3. Great block!! Going to put it on Pinterest. =)

  4. Such a clever block, I love that you can still see the 9 patch hiding behind the sashing!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
