Bloom block 12

Wow, and like that we’re already 60% through the Bloom quilt.  I think I mentioned last week that I traced around the Pellon, sewed it to the individual shapes and basted those onto the background fabric before I left for the weekend.

I was 35,000 feet in the air on the way to my destination when I was done and on to the next project – I’ll write more about that later this week.

2016-04-04 11.18.06That means I should complete row 4 the first week of May and the last row the end of May.  I’ll likely spend June completing the sashing, border, basting and then quilting.

Every week when I finish a block, I think about what I plan to do for the quilting.  My first idea is to echo each flower about 1/4″ .  Some blocks have more white space than other, but to keep a consistent look I probably won’t quilt extra in those areas.

The big question is what am I going to quilt on the sashing?  So far I’m coming up with a blank.

I’ve downloaded the pattern for the April block from Leah Day so I’ll start on that either this evening or tomorrow.

  1. Wow, the quilt is going to be beautiful!

    1. A friend asked if I wanted to do it since she was. I’m so glad she suggested it; the pattern and fabrics are so cheerful!

    Very cute block

  3. Can’t wait to see what you do!

    1. I should probably ask Lori Holt if she has any suggestions. It might end up as a hodge podge if left to my own devices!
