Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: Donation Blocks

Leave a comment

This week I’m working on donation blocks for Briawna at Purple Poppy Quilts. I usually make blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love, but this month she asked us to support Briawna, and autism is a cause that’s important to me.

I’ve never done these cross-plus blocks before, but they are very easy. Choosing colors is harder, as you can see from mine, but I’m learning. One thing that I like is that it uses scrap sizes I already have cut, and it’s perfect for bright or novelty fabrics that don’t always fit in other places.

Six blocks finished, six more to assemble.

Today was a beautiful day with perfect sunny, mild weather. I spent some time working outdoors, indoors, in the studio, and at the Y. Hope you had a good day, too.
