Colorful blocks

I made up a few more of the blocks with the Luxury Essentials Fabrics (the fabric is part of the give away…see that here

I now have 24 blocks done…..there will be 24 more , I have only used half of the fabrics so far.


I love all the colors , I do need to shift around the blocks a bit to keep 2 of the same fabrics from being next to each other….perhaps a bit over-obsessive but it would drive me crazy if I sewed them together like that. (see the lower left with the blue fabric)

I was thinking that I might also like this if it were monochromatic.    I converted a picture to  gray-scale

I think it has real potential that way too.

Teddy gave the blocks an initial test.


He sure does look good with all those colors.


Today I plan to get the pattern finished for the Snowflake quilt


made from this snowflake


And I want to finish the Batik top


and I would like to finish the orange quilt top


I think I need at least a few days 🙂

Happy Quilting

    Beautiful blocks

    Another idea would be to replace the plain white block with a train or truck block.. It would then make a wonderful little boys quilt. Teddy looks mighty perky today.

    Amazed as always. I love opening up my email when yours arrives.

    Your quilting is; more than art, more than talent, more than dedication and drive, and more than passion and love for what you do.
    Every quilt picture you post is also a motivational speaker. I am inspired to get up, get moving and don’t waste another minute or leave a project unfinished. There may not be another Tim to finish my quilt tops in the next century, and definitely not another Teddy.

    Thank you.

    There are so many patterns out there and yet once again you have created something new and exciting! Second row from the top, far right block: is it turned differently?

    • timquilts says:

      yes i think that one needs to be turned as well…..once I get the next 24 blocks done I think I will spend a good bit of time re arranging them all…..again and again….I always seem to miss at least one or 2 …..and for some reason they show up better in a picture

    I love that pattern for the “colorful blocks”, Tim – great effect!
    Best wishes!

    Thank you, Tim, for all your inspiration. I’m attempting a Wonky Nine Patch quilt now. It’s going slowly because I am alternating between those blocks and a hand quilting project.
    I’m a cat person. But, Teddy is my favorite dog. I just love to see him pose on the quilts.
    Thank you for all you do for the quilting world.

    I am a poor retired school teacher. Please enter my name in the fabric give away. I like the batiks.
