As I mentioned last month, I am participating in the Bonfire Sampler Block of the Month swap with Quilting Mayhem and In an Otter Life. Each month, we make three blocks and exchange them at the beginning of the next month.
As of the beginning of the month, I still had not found an orange I was happy with. I went to one of my local quilt shops a week ago , and I found a great option! It’s Oval Elements in Peaches ‘n Cream from Art Gallery Fabrics. I also used it for the Orange blocks I showed you on Monday. I only got a half yard because I think I’m also going to find a slightly brighter orange to incorporate into my Bonfire blocks as well.
So, here are my blocks for the month! I made last months blocks on the very cool end of the spectrum, so I wanted to balance these ones a little more. In the summer months, I may make some really warm-toned blocks to help balance out the cool blocks from January. It’s funny how the season effects what fabrics we choose.
It’ll be so interesting at the end of the year to see all 24 blocks made over 10 months by three different people. I can’t wait to see this quilt top, and it will be such a sweet reminder of my quilty friends.
Happy Sewing, ~L
