Oh my goodness, it’s already the end of October and time to celebrate Halloween AND your success at making “Old Maid’s Puzzle” (a.k.a. “Schoolgirl’s Puzzle”). Yes, this is the day you need to comment “Done” if you have completed the 12″ big sister and the 6″ little sister blocks for October. If you aren’t quite finished, you can work on them while handing out candy to trick-or-treaters this evening.
I have some Quilt Along participants’ blocks to show you . . .
First up, is Sana’s share. As you can see, her fabrics are all solids, so she is adding interest by appliquéing shapes in the larger patches.
All together, now. Aren’t Sana’s blocks fantastic? She said she had to put them on her design wall to avoid using lime green in every block. Lime definitely adds a visual punch!
Joy also sent me pictures of her blocks. I love the large scale print she used in the largest triangles, and the green and pink fabrics she selected coordinate so well.
Here are all of Joy’s blocks, to date. She’s using the underside of an oval plastic table cloth as a design surface; the blocks adhere well to the fuzzy texture.
If you are finished making both “Old Maid’s Puzzle” blocks, join Sana and Joy in commenting “Done!” I’ll put your name in a drawing for a McCall’s Quilting magazine. Be sure to come back tomorrow when instructions for November’s blocks will be posted!
