Quilt Block Number Number Twenty-Two
Eight months ago I decided to make the 200 quilts from my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". At first I thought I would be able to make all 200 quilts within a year or a year and a half. I guess I was a bit optimistic. Life seems to have a way of slowing me down. I am still determined to sew all 200 quilts from the 200 quilt blocks. I'm just not going to try to figure out how long it will take.
This is not a difficult block but you want to make sure you square up each seam. I wouldn't try this block if you are a beginner. It is more for an intermediate quilter. I love how this block feels three dimensional. Here is what it looks like when you put four blocks together.
I hope I didn't scare you off on trying this block because it is pretty impressive. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

I think this is a wonderful quilt. I feel like I am looking through a kaleidoscope. Nice work.

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.
