Quilt block 16 is called, Aunt Addie's Album. I enjoyed this quilt block and will definitely use it again. I played around a little with this block but I could see myself trying all sorts of designs. I didn't take the time now to do that but some day I will. Here is what the block looks like:
I love the butterfly fabric and was looking for an uplifting and colorful quilt. I think I was having Spring Fever. I took the bold yellow and lime green out of the butterfly fabric to make part of the block. It really pops against the royal blue. I decided to put a boarder around each block. This is something I don't usually do.
It's funny. This is the first time I have looked at these pictures side by side and I like the pattern design you get on both of them even though they are both different. If you changed the background fabrics to two different fabrics, that would create another design as well. There is just so much you can do with this block.
I made these blocks into a Lovie Lap Quilt. It will brighten someone's day. Take a look:
Just a quick review: I am currently making 200 quilts from my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". In this book, Judy has 200 quilt blocks. I am making the 200 quilts so you can see what the quilt blocks look like when you put them together. This is my favorite quilt book because of the variety of blocks which all come in six different sizes. So there is no math to figure out.
King's Crown is a simple quilt block. This is a good block to use when you have a fabric with a large print. The center square is fairly large to show off your larger print. Take a look:
Take a look at the four blocks together. I have made a lap quilt with this pattern. I only used three fabrics but it came out striking. See what you think:
Contrary wife is a very simple quilt block. It comes together quickly and easily. This is a great block for beginners. There are only half square triangles and squares in this block but it looks impressive when put together.
I chose a bright floral fabric for his block. I was having spring fever and needed to be uplifted. This was the perfect fabric. See what you think:
Now watch what happens when you put four blocks together. You could play around with this block and come up with many different designs. I am starting to notice that the simplier the block, the more designs you can make. Here is one design:
I made this quilt into a Lovie Lap Quilt with pockets. This is an original design.
