#QBM October Sneak Peak!
This block has been SO challenging to get from the imagine in my mind to a pattern! I see an irresistible and adorable block and, oh my, has it been hard! The foundation was extremely simple. Let's just say it put my drawing skills to a test and they have very much improved!
Are you curious yet????
I really did have fun making the block. I used three generations of fabric from pieces of my great-grandmothers feed sacks to fabric from my stash. This I have thoroughly enjoyed. I am so blessed to still have those feed sacks! Do you have fabric you want to never use up because it is so special? Every time I use a little bit of a feed sack, I think how it is forever gone. It's ever so slightly sad, but it makes me put in a little more effort. I can always cherish a special piece and perhaps one day give away to a child of the next generation.
The top peach square is from a feed sack. I LOVE this one, it was one of my favorites. I could see a woman making a pretty dress from it. The background is what might be described as a buttercream. It was my grandmothers. Lastly the piece at the bottom is mine. (Hint, hint... this fabric will be in the 2021 quilt along!) It is from Christa Watson's collection Good Vibes.
Even though I want to reveal the block today, I simply cannot. I think the fellow Quilt Block Mania designers would look down upon it!
Until next time, happy quilting!
