Blocks 9 and 10

Block 9 is another exercise in randomness.  I chose the size of the blocks and the fabric placement using a random number generator.

I don't love this block as a stand alone but next to the other blocks it works well.  It adds a little dash of asymmetry to an area of the quilt heavy with highly structured blocks.

Block 10 is a square-in-a-square.

I made a lot of these blocks in 2015 including my square in a square baby quilt and many UFOs.  It was a relief to only have to sew one this time around!

Fabrics used:
Doily Web in Mustard (Spellbound by Cotton + Steel)
Pasture Lines in Pickle (Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander)
Kona Solid in Corn Yellow (by Robert Kaufman)
Collar Ends in Bronze (Artisan by AGF)
Four Corners - Weave in Gold (Riley Blake Designs)

  1. I thought I recognized Carkai in Pickle from the thumbnail at Needle and Thread Thursday. Love your blocks!

    1. I love all of the Carkai fabrics. I had to restrain myself from buying yards and yards of them all :) Thanks for stopping by Paige!

  2. Your fabric choices are excellent in your block designs- love them!
