I am making 200 quilts from Judy Hopkins book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". I decided to do this because this is one of my favorite quilt books. Not only does Judy give you 200 quilt blocks, but all the blocks come in six different block sizes. So there is no math for you to figure out. I have also found out that when you look at a single quilt block, it doesn't tell you what the quilt will look like when the blocks are put together. Many of the blocks can me turned to form a different quilt pattern.
By my making all 200 quilts, it will give you at least one version of that quilt block. At times I will take pictures with the pattern turned to show you another design. Quilt block number four is called "Album". You can do this block in three colors, but I chose four. The block size I chose is 6". I am making a lap quilt for wheelchairs so I wanted a small block size. The book makes a suggestion that you could reverse the mediums and darks in every other block. For each of the different blocks, Judy gives you an alternate way to make it. No wonder this book is a favorite of so many quilters.
This is my own design Lovie Lap Quilt with pockets. I designed this lap quilt after visits with my grandmother in the nursing home. The pockets are lined in flannel for extra warmth and comfort. There are two pockets, one to keep your hands warm and the other for items you would like close at hand. The back of the quilt is also flannel. I have these quilts for sale on my site. Happy Sewing!
