Of course I couldn’t resist making a second one! These are way too addictive to stitch to stop at just one! Or two. Or a dozen. I’m already planning on making this one a 16-block little quilt. At least. Maybe more. I will try to stop after a couple more, though, and get back to the red and white quilt. Try is the operative word there.
There are so many setting options with this block. I could put them side by side, like this.
Or on point, like this.
Or beside one another like this.
Or like this. However I decide to set them, this is going to be known as my Tiffany lamp quilt. My mother loved Tiffany lamps, as do I, and these blocks definitely remind me of the Tiffany lamp we had in our kitchen when I was growing up.
Yesterday morning the ideas were just flying through my mind with so many possibilities for this block! I already know I’ll be making more than one quilt using these shapes, probably more than a few. My ideas book has almost a page full of notes on this one. I can’t get over how easy they are to put together. Loads of opportunities for continuous stitching and some wonderful curved piecing. This block has it all!
Baxter came to help when we were starting to take photos. Mr. Q.O. dubbed this one “The Critic”.
And this was his “official” first birthday portrait.
