A Great Big Block

For the new quilt, I began by pulling fabrics to coordinate with the Kaffe Fasset Serape stripe. I had just about everything but that grey/brown color. I got close tho, even had the white.
Then I cut a center square 16 1/2" and built the block from there. It got really big.
Then I cut it in half and inserted a panel made from the stripe + some more strips to balance it out..
Then cut again and insert a panel with an inset white bit crossing the stripes. The final size of this big big block is 48x46"

 But wait, there's more to come. Surrounding the main block will be more blocks, 24"ish square.
I will probably unsew the main block to quilt it in parts, but you get the idea.

The pond is full to the brim and overflowing in great gushing glugs. All new rain water filled the basin and the fish are ever so visible.

When the sun returns everything will shoot up, so stand back!


  1. Surely it is not lost on you that the wide shot of the pond and the house matches the colors in the block! The mossy green water, the dark green roof top, the light green buds and the greener moss... plus the shot of pink in the red bud ... and white from the porch railing and the pug!

  2. Yeehah to both the new quilt and the garden that the dogs must love. I just hope they don't wade in the pond then relax on a quilt! My cats love to rest on a quilt to clean the leaves and wet grass from their fur...but you still have to love them!

  4. What a fun block! Thanks for sharing... I MUST get out those stripes I've been saving.

  5. Time for a fish quilt? Small sharp orange pieces against lovely aqua blue. I can see it now.
