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!

Pretty blocks, love the colors. I can't wait to see the whole quilt of these!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

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

Jan @Cocoa Quilts said...

The colors are perfect. If I would have seen 133 pieces before I started, I would have run. Beautiful job.

As a Bonnieholic...it was no surprise that I liked her block as well. It is piece intensive with that many pieces. But love your colour choices...even if they came from someone else!!! It is on my to do list!!

Monica said...

This looks great in your cool colours, Kathy! I was impressed by this block too.

Thanks for sharing on Design Wall Mondays, I love the colors you used in your block.

What a pretty block. It's such a bonus to be able to use up HSTs in a new project.

133 pieces--man-o-man ;000-- you have got to be kidding--and it turned out beautifully! I give you credit...beautiful hugs, Julierose

Karen said...

I like your fabric choices. I have been on a teal roll of late.

AnnieO said...

Very pretty! Right up your alley with those tiny pieces!

Janet O. said...

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!

Rebecca Grace said...

What a beautiful block! I love those soothing blues.

Kate said...

Gorgeous! Lots of little pieces in that one!

Beautiful block!

I fell in love with this block too. Maybe I will make it my RSC project for next year! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

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.
