Design Wall Monday

Everyone knows how much I love the 100 Blocks magazines. It is creatively refreshing to flip through the patterns and see a wide variety of 12" block designs. When I got the latest issue #15, I was smitten by Bonnie Hunter's block - no surprise I'm sure! On the design wall today is my version of Bonnie's block.

I made this block from a baggie of scrap triangles given to me by a quilting friend at my guild. Although I set myself a challenge to use only the triangles in the bag, I ended up needing to add white squares and rectangles for the outside rows.

Total # of block pieces = 133!



These are some of the HSTs being squaring down using the BlocLoc ruler. 
WOW this was fun block to sew! It will probably be finished as a miniature quilt one day.

Linking up to design wall Monday which is now being hosted by Judy over at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, and Oh Scrap!

  3. that is a pretty block - did you press your seams open I wonder with so many pieces in it it seems to lay pretty flat so I am curious

  21. A wonderful block/mini quilt. I love challenging myself to make something from "only what is in the bag", whatever the source of the bag may be. Added background is always allowed. I'd say you did a smashing job of this!

  27. The block is a beauty -- great colorway! I have trouble with the 100 Blocks series -- I think it's because they are so disparate and my mind wants continuity from design to design.
