I Sure Could Use Your Opinion!!

A couple of years ago, I taught a young Mom how to quilt.  She made a queen-size quilt for her Sister's wedding present.  Here is the quilt she designed and made ~

You can read the entire post HERE.

Well, she ended up with extra blocks and somehow I have them.  I thought I would use them to make a quilt for her oldest daughter's bed - I guess that would be a single bed.  But I don't know what to do with them.  Here is what I have and I have quite a few of them but will need other fabrics to add to them to made a large enough quilt.


I would love some suggestions!!  And for your time I will send a charm pack to the gal who's suggestion I use.

Also, here is a look at my I-cord now that it is felted.  Next, I need to figure out how to make a bag out of that big felted blob I created!!


Have a wonderful Friday!!

Seems like pin wheels would work with every other block being a solid square. Not necessarily solid fabric just a one piece block.

What about a larger, and obviously rectangular, version of something like this? https://weddingdressblue.wordpress.com/2017/06/16/tutorial-lily-pad-baby-quilt/

You already have nice light/dark contract in the HST.

Or something like this...it would be easier to resize and require fewer added HST: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2014/05/jelly-turnover-quilt.html

Kris, whatever you do will be perfect!

How about making large, scrappy Lady of the Lake blocks with them? If those are 3" HSTs that would give you a 15" block. It wouldn't take long to put together and wouldn't take that many for a twin size quilt top.

Hi! I see chevrons! Rows of light/dark chevrons...cute for a youngster, too! Also...are you still using your Pfaff 1200? (Searching for info on that machine is how I came across your blog:)
