These are some of online purchases that I made on Black Friday Sale. I usually support my local quilt shops, but this time I couldn't resist the sale. I must say it can be addictive and harmful to my pocket book. Aren't they awesome though?
Our Valley Modern Quilt Guild has a new challenge - Highlight Yellow. We have to make something that includes Highlight Yellow into the design. I put together the fabric that I want to use and here they are.
I started with
(1) 9" square from each print fabric
(1) 9" square of Highlight Yellow and
(3) 9" square of Kona Snow
Three hours later, I came up with these 8 1/2" blocks.
I love improv piecing and had a lot of fun making these blocks. I think the Highlight Yellow looks really good among blacks and whites. I'm going to make a throw size quilt, so I'll need 42 blocks. Five down, 37 more to go!! Next week, I'll try curve piecing and add it into the mix.
What is your fun project for the new year? Whatever you do I hope you're having a great time.
Don't forget to visit back here on Feb. 1st. It's my second Blogiversary and there will be some cool giveaways. Don't miss out.
Have a great week!!
