Good morning! How was your weekend? I hope it was great. I'm excited today as it's the first day of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks blog hop! Can you believe there are 800 blocks so far! This last batch is wonderful.
Here's my block Summer Posies before I sent it off in hopes of being selected. I used my Pam Kitty Love collection to make it. I think most of you know that I love that red, white and pink combination, so my regular people probably could have picked my block out without looking at the name!
Because I loved the block so much, I recreated it for a pillow. (I might have a pillow problem.) This time I used my Pam Kitty Picnic fabric, that should be in stores soon. I extended the woven rick rack handle farther above the basket to accommodate the larger background piece.. I wanted to use a 14 inch pillow form and the block originally is 12 inch.
I think what I like best is the dimensional pieces! What? 3-D? You didn't notice?
Quiltmaker did a great job at explaining how to put this block together, especially with the space constraints! I hope you give it a try. It seems like such a cheerful block to me.
Thanks to Quiltmaker for including Summer Posies in this edition!
