April Lattice Blocks

  Rory has been ever so helpful getting April's Covered in Love blocks laid out on the design wall.  It looks like we will get 2 "regular" arrangement tops out of these plus a third out of the scraps, orphans, and odd-shaped blocks.

Also pictured, my new (to me) free motion machine!! A gift from a local quilter friend.  Formal introduction post coming soon, once I give her a name :)

Of course, you know me, the scraps are the best part! Granted these are other people's scraps, but just as good as home grown.  Currently I have them in a zigzag configuration but there are so many options!

I am in the process of assembling the first top (below) while playing with the design of the other two.

Last week I announced May's block drive design several people have already sent in blocks!  If you want to sew along and support Covered in Love check out the block drive for more information :)

  1. Those are looking great! Such pretty, bright colors. I bet getting all those blocks from all over the place to turn into a quilt is a bit like putting a jigsaw puzzle together!

  2. Blocks AND bonus "squares"? What FUN hot colors!!

  3. Great summertime colors. Lots of happiness in those blocks. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  4. Oo, the little scrap blocks are wild and wooly! Without the cream neutral to calm them down, they are a rambunctious group. Can't wait to see what you decide to do with them!

    My May blocks are cut out and patiently waiting to be pieced together. I've been doing FMQ, so I've got the wrong foot on the machine to piece. I'm lazy about changing feet, and thread color, and bobbins...I like to do as much as I can with any given machine set up.
