Purple and Green!
There is a sew along going on...the Moda Blockheads quilt along! It is 48 different sampler blocks, all 6 inches, finished. Well, you know me...as I had already done two samplers two years running with six inch blocks, I decided to be different. These are 9 inch blocks (I love the math part), and very different colors of green and purple, instead of the more traditional reproductions that most quilters are using. I do not have a green and purple quilt, so now I will have one.
One funny thing about this was...I cut out all the pieces and parts ahead of time, and labeled them. Well, I labeled one batch wrong, and ended up with a bunch of miscellaneous parts. So...that is why I have at least one block that is not the same as the pattern...I just winged it, and made my own block from those parts!
This block is not one of the blocks offered in the quilt along, but I made it, instead of the beehive block. It stands for four friends at work, when we all used to work at the hospital Everyone is retired but me!
This is a toad stool in our yard...with my foot in comparison for size. It was a whopper!!
