Not Spooky But Cute!

It's amazing how color can make a big difference in a quilt block.  My latest quilt was designed around black, gray and orange. I liked the design so much I decided to make it in a brighter, more me, colorway.

The difference is night and day.  Not that I don't like the black version, I do.  But the one above makes me a little happier.   

The orange and yellow fabrics I'm using in the blocks above are scraps leftover from my Autumn Memories Quilt.  I designed my Autumn Memories quilt pattern for the fabric line Autumn Love by Lori Holt for Riley Blake. 

I loved Autumn Love line so much I had buy more it and make a second quilt called Podunk Plaid.  Both of these quilts are available in my pattern shop.

Speaking of plaid, have you seen her newest line called Bee Plaid?  Oh my goodness!  This line was made just for me!  You all know how much I love plaids and ginghams.  Wonder how much it would cost for a bolt of each?  I suppose I'll need to settle for just a little of a few(one or two) of them.    

For now I need to stay focused on the project at hand.  The internet with all it's pretty pictures can be so distracting.  I stumbled upon the Bee Plaids while going down a rabbit hole looking for the name of the block in my current project.  

I've searched the internet high and low for days and  looked in four different quilt block encyclopedia books I own. Not one of them has this block in it.  Do you know the name?  I know I've seen it somewhere but for the life of me I can't remember where.

  1. Lea Anne, ooh, I just love this block. I can see so many color variations and 3-D fabric affects to create with it, when you reveal!

  2. Good morning Lea Anne. I stumbled across your blog a few days ago and can't seem to stop reading. I have started from your current posts and so far have read through January 2019. We have coffee together every morning ;). I LOVE everything about your blog. Honestly, it looks like we will be having morning coffee for a few more days together. I intend on reading every single post until I reach the first one and then I will be checking in on a regular basis. Thanks for such a fun, interesting blog. I dabble in blogging a bit but life gets in the way and it's the last thing I have time for. It's been a while since I have posted but you have inspired me to keep sewing. Thanks again, Lucy

  3. I do like the quilt in both color ways Lea Anne. If you do find the name of that block, please share it with us. I’m having the niggling beginning of an idea and this block just might be the missing part of my plan! 😉

  4. Good morning Lea Anne. Hope you don't mind but I referred to your "Fudging it" post on my blog yesterday. It has helped me to stick it out and finish my frustrating Patio Picnic quilt top. Thanks again for your inspiration.

  5. Lea Anne - hope you are doing better! Miss you -

  6. Love seeing the blocks in different color ways. And yes, what a difference color makes in what we are drawn to! Sometimes I'll see a quilt block or pattern dozens of times and it does nothing for me, until I see a version that someone has made in colors that I LOVE!

  7. I LOVE reading your blog, and have missed you. Hoe all is well

  8. Hey girl this is Patty Hine from Martinsville Indiana I just found you on here. I am a quilter too.

  9. Just a note to say we miss you, your great sense of humor, and your "can't live without" creations.


  10. Interesting, no one mentioned the name of the block you showed. It's a lovely block, and sadly i don't have the answer to it either. I'll keep checking in, to see if someone knows it's name. xoxox e.
