Sewing for fun

I've been playing around with a design for fun!  I'm using a few blocks from our Curve it Up pattern.  Here is the last layout I came up with.


Here is another one....


I challenged myself to only use prints.  Fun too.

I think maybe a combination of both is what I'm after now.  More prints...less solid.  

My plan is to make four and when sewed together have a super fun quilt!  Maybe a QAL...??

Fantastic, what fun. I bet these would look great in hand dyed fabrics too

Wow! Gorgeous block! I've made a Curve It Up quilt so I was trying to pick out which blocks you combined. I can identify two of them. Not sure about the rest.

That's awesome! So different.

I like the revised grey, green and white look of your blog !

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!! Oh my goodness!!! They look like vintage Christmas ornaments. I can almost see the bubble lights percolating among the boughs.

That's a great block! I LOVE it!! Seems I urgently need the Curve it Up pattern!

They appear to be something I would see if on a trek to India. A very eye-catching piecing for sure!

I would love a quilt a long for this!! It is absolutely stunning! I'm curious what size the blocks are? Leah

The first block interests me in it's complexity but the color combination doesn't appeal to me. The second block is really stunning - holds my interest both shape and color wise. Wow !

All I think of is Taj Mahal when I look at those blocks.

That sounds great! I love the print one. I think you marveled at using prints and they're striking. This could be a center medallion for another quilt design too :).

Wow!!!! I love this Block :-)). You did a really beautyful work!

Very cool blocks, Jenny! In reds and greens, they could resemble vintage Christmas ornaments, but in jewel tones or spicey hues they could have a really fun Indian or Moroccan vibe. Shouldn't you ALWAYS be sewing for fun? When you're "just playing around" is always when you come up with the best ideas.
