25 Everyday Patchwork Blocks

What a hodge podge of blocks!  And fabrics.  And colors.  Each block will get its own border and then sashing will separate the blocks.  I like the idea that each block will have a little breathing space and its own little frame.


These are the 25 blocks for Cheri Payne's Everyday Patchwork series on her blog.  I will add five more blocks to make a rectangular quilt instead of a square one.  I love some of these blocks, others not so much.  And some I disliked making but like the finished block a lot.

I used lots of scraps for the blocks but also cut into some new fabric.  Some of the light blocks look really light.  I won't tea dye them because I will want to wash and dry this quilt without losing color.  But I have some walnut dye I made last fall that I may use on the very lightest ones.  We'll see.

Finishing these blocks was my One Monthly Goal for May so I'm linking this post to One Monthly Goal - May Finish link-up at Elm Street Quilts.  Thanks for hosting, Patty.

  2. Love, love your blocks Nancy. I think they have come together very nicely. I also like your Liberty block and will enjoy seeing what you do with those patterns. Cheri really made her mark, didn't she.

    1. Thank you, Jocelyn. A few more steps for these blocks before I can put them together in a quilt. Oh, that Liberty quilt-along is turning out to be a challenge to my limited skills. I think part of it is that I feel new to the primitive style of quilting -- I haven't quite "got it" yet. Yes, Cheri did make her mark.

    1. Oh, yes, I saw that! I don't think I can add one more hand project right now, though. I also like the memory blocks they're doing (added the 15th of each month). The first one of the mother and child with kite and heart are so sweet. Will you participate in the Christmas stitch-along?
