Designing, Sewing, Quilting QUILTS!!

BlockBase Sew Along – Block 12

Block 12

 

For the final block in the BlockBase Sew Along, we picked our block!  My parameters were:  finish at 10″ and no triangles.   With a little searching, I picked block 1829, Country Lanes.

 

 

 

What’s next?  How do I design a quilt with blocks ranging from 8 to 10 inches?  Frames!   I found a dark red in my stash and started making twist frames.  Here’s 6 of them with the first frame.

I’ll add a second frame and then square them up to the same size.  I’m not sure what the second color will be but I’m trying to use something from my stash of fabric.  If I can use one of my vintage yardages, all the better!

Stay tuned to see how long it takes me to make this into a flimsy and then a finished product!  Who knows, it may join many other projects languishing in Linda’s Loose Ends pile!

Check here for other Block 12 finishes!

Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!

🙂 Linda
