A Little of This and A Little of That

This not so little block 20"x30" was great fun to make.  I followed this tute from Paige, for whom the block is for.  I learned a few things along the way and believe if I were to make another I would do a better job.  This one has a few extra seams.  And the blue dots next to the red flower are kind of close, but other than that I think it turned out fairly well.
I like the way the negative space sets off the different prints.  Letting you show off a little of this great print and a little of that great print. 

Deanna is a dear bloggy friend.  She has donated several tops to Happy Chemo.  I appreciate her generosity.  Well, she just did a wonderful review on my Harvest Sky pattern.  The quilt you see in my header. You should check out her  beautiful rendition of this scrappy quilt.  Thanks Deanna for the kind words and the beautiful quilt tops for Happy Chemo!

The lovely and talented Victoria of  Bumble Beans is asking for finished quilt for such a good cause that I just had to help spread the word.  Go here to see some of the quilts that have already been donated.  Do you have a top laying around that needs a good home.  How about finishing it up and donating it to Basics.  What a great gift to give someone in need this holiday season.

  1. I have seen a couple similar quilts to the "negative space" type you are working on. It does give focus to great prints from a fabric stash.

  2. My pleasure! I have some more Happy Chemo quilts planned, but have to get through a sewing crunch first.

    I recommend the Harvest Sky quilt to anyone who likes unexpected, easy and scrappy. A fun quilt to make.
