Midweek Makers #159

Welcome back to the Midweek Makers! 

The linky is back to the usual style, as many of you had difficulty linking up last week. I'm sorry to have caused frustration among my loyal party-goers, but I felt I needed to try the new format, as I have a suspicion the older style won't last forever. Change is in the air for linky parties - let's just hope we can hold it off for a while!

On the bright side, I've gotten both blue and aqua blocks made for the Summer Quilt from the Quilt Giving book.

I originally wanted to make a baby quilt size, but the block size is too big, as the quilt design between the blue and the aqua doesn't turn out well.

Half of the quilt disappears on the right, and the triangle pieces are just there. Except for the two center triangle strips, there's not much pattern interest.
So, I'm thinking of cutting some more blocks, and just making the quilt size from the book, which makes it another large lap, or almost a twin size quilt.

And because I'm working in blue and aqua, I'm highlighting those projects from last week that also have those colors.

From Storied Quilts,

From deJong Dream House,  

From Cheeky Cognoscenti.

  1. A fun quilt block you've made. You have to play around with different colour combos to get it as you like.

  2. What size are your blocks, Susan? I love the shades of blue you’ve chosen. Thanks for featuring my appliqué block in today’s post — I feel like a celebrity. A very minor celebrity — like the ones on the celebrity match game show, not the ones on the red carpet. Hah!

  3. The blocks look great. Blue and aqua are great colours.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
