Let's Bee Social #42

I don't usually work on block quilts.
And it's been quite a while since I last used any prints.

But I am now!


This is my first block of a 30 block quilt.  The blocks finish at 7" square.


I am using what remains of my Basic Shades from Riley Blake Designs, used previously here.  I love the softened, less saturated look of these fabrics.  And am enjoying pairing each one up with a coordinating print.

NOW.... What's new with you?





If you are not sure what Let's Bee Social is all about, you can read the details here.





Keep On Quilting On!

You certainly coordinated a beautiful print in the above block! I like the brown square next to it and the solid fabric. That's promising...

these colors, fabrics and threads are beautiful, soothing and cheerful. What made you work differently? It's a good thing, just wondering... LeeAnna at not afraid of color

Love the colorings of your block-looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!

I love the colours in this block. It is listed as #42 - I looked for the other blocks but couldn't find them - maybe I'm a little mixed up and it's just a post number?

I like what you are doing w/the basic shades. Looking forward to seeing the completed quilt top.

I like that you are using solids. Not much out there that does. I want to make a solid two color quilt, maybe try this pattern. Debbie at Daytona Damsel

I love your block. I wouldn't have thought to put those two colors together like that! Very nice!

Great block and love all the solids as well. Only 29 more to go....:)

I love 30's prints. I really like how you paired the 30's print with the soft solid--so fresh. Can't wait to see what you make with it.

Soma @ whimsandfancies.com said...

I like how you are colour coordinating the solids and the prints. It will be a beautiful quilt, Lorna!
