With the end of March comes the end of the first quarter of 2021 and the finish line for “Ojo de Dios,” the block for the month. Many of us have been waiting for the local health agencies to announce that vaccines are available for our age and category. Perhaps while you have been waiting, you have had time to sew blocks for your “Options” quilt. I often find that my patience can stretch a bit further if I have something creative to take my mind off imminent issues. Do you concur?
Several Quilt Along participants shared pictures of their blocks to inspire you. First up are Blocks #1 and #2 by Melody. Zoom in to see the fabrics she chose. She is making a quilt for her sister who has a camper and whose favorite color teal, so the camper theme fabric is perfect. I really like Melody’s use of the stripe fabric in her blocks.
Joy also shared a picture of “Scrappy Stars” as well as “Ojo de Dios” blocks. The fabric combinations are so interesting to study. We all see color and pattern a bit differently, so it’s instructional to view someone else’s ideas!
Colleen is basing her quilt on happy colors and coordinating floral fabrics. She enjoyed modifying “Ojo de Dios” to suit her muse.
Judy continues with her project of making twin size quilts for her granddaughter’s bunkbeds.
Well done, ladies, and thanks for sharing!
Now it’s your turn . . . if you have made the “Ojo de Dios” blocks, type DONE in the comments below. Everyone who has made blocks will be entered in a drawing for a quilting magazine.
It’s not too late to join the fun of our “Options” block of the month quilt along. Click on “Options BOM QAL” in the menu.
