Now, can I just say that a lot of you may be great quilters but there are a few numpties out there. Now I don't mean quilting numpties, I mean computer numpties. A few of you linked to your blog but not the post with the quilt in - so make sure, if you provide a link, the name of the post and not your your blog name is in your browser, copy and paste that into the linky! Or the name of the flickr page if you're linking to a pic on flickr. There was one double numpty who linked their picture back to my blog. I won't humiliate her by telling you who it was but I can say it gave us both a good chuckle!
For my favourite quilt blocks that I have made, I will shamelessly copy and paste a post I did a week ago for a quilt block competition so, if you've read it before, just skip right over it. And, once again, I'd love to see your favourite blocks in today's linky at the bottom of the page.
I made this block for Krista lolablueocean who asked for any kind of circle block at all and sent some wonderful, whimsical fabrics which lent themselves to a whimsical, dreamy, circle. The challenge for me on this block was making a dream spiral for sleeping beauty to sleep inside which I achieved with a 3/4" bias strip, ironed in half, sewn on with a 3/8" seam, folded over and then hand sewn down.
Amber (One Shabby Chick) asked for a modern block for the quilt she was making for her uber cool musician sister in law, Hope and we were given total free rein to make pretty much anything modern at all. The idea for this block is of course just a simple wonky nine patch with framed centres. For some reason, I made an enormous palaver of making it, probably because I was in a rush as I was going on holiday the next day and, had I just taken a deep breath, I would have made it in half the time. Hindsight. Not much use once the block is made really.
Karrie Lynn of Freckled Whimsy asked us for a block made of half square triangles and I, intrigued that I had only ever seen single circles of flying geese, wanted to design and make a double circle. Imagine my frustration when the block came out 1/4" shy of the required 16 1/2" requested by KarrieLynn - ah well, we can always add a skinny little layer of sashing to make a block grow to the requested size, albeit through gritted teeth.
