I used a pattern that was shared during the 2011 Block Lotto to make a quilt for Kendra. I had so much fun with this one! Kendra enjoyed picking out the bright fabrics, and we loved watching the garden grow, lol. In the grand debate about chain-piecing versus sewing each block, I am a true Libra – looking for that middle-of-the-road balance. There were 48 flowers in the top…I would cut pieces for 6 – 8 blocks, then piece those. I need the satisfaction of seeing the completed blocks as I work. But, that is not a set-in-stone rule…I also love to sew mystery quilts where you cut pieces for one step at a time and don’t see the full pattern until the very end.
Speaking of Block Lotto, our hostess Sophie is doing a great job with this year’s selections.
And I am going to town with the half square triangle blocks for March:
