abstracts & florals

Who doesn't love a pretty nine patch . . . or a sweet churn dash block? I'm using a mix of these two simple blocks and lots of AMH florals & abstract fabrics to create this bright & colourful busy quilt by Jo from frankieandray.
Alternating the blocks provides visual interest, and I found some solid fabrics that graduate in colour which really adds a nice extra touch too. After the 25 blocks for the quilt centre are made, there will be a border of simple squares and then another row right around of more alternating blocks.

More photos of my stuff over here on my instagram feed.

Until next time, Linda


  1. Your blocks look great. They're so bright and happy.

  2. Love this! Always a treat to see what you're doing with your fabric. Very striking.:)

  3. You’re combining these fabrics in such an artful manner. Just enough solids to clarify. I love your pairs but the overall effect is even better.

  4. that pink!!! I like the focus the little bird gives the piece. The patterns of fabrics dance around her!

  5. Such fun blocks Linda! They play so nicely together!

  6. This will be an interesting quilt - looking at the original version I can see it is very much your vontage scrappy style. Good to see you enjoying your quilting again.

  7. You have some really interesting fabrics here and I love the mucky green-y shades mixed in. I also like that you have used the same fabric in different colours.

  8. Lovely blocks again with your gorgeous fabrics.
