For those of you who are new to my blog, I am quilting 200 quilts from the book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". This is one of my favorite quilt books but I was using the same blocks over and over. So now I have challenged myself to make a quilt from each of the 200 blocks. One of the great things about this book is Judy gives you the dimensions for six different sizes of each block.
So I decided to add a green in place of the side yellows. See what you think.
When I put the four blocks together, I noticed it made another square on the diagonal. I then took a darker turquoise to accentuate the diagonal. Then I wasn't sure about the green so I made it all yellow again. Here are the results:
I think they both would have worked but I liked the green added. Here are the results. I wanted to make sure you saw the square on the diagonal so that's how I quilted it. I really like how it turned out.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
