The Disappearing Quilt Blocks Challenge quilt top is finished.


I haven't been posting my progress on this quilt, but I have been working hard.  I'm going to Quiltcon next wee, and feel like I'm under a deadline!


I used three different disappearing blocks for this design.  Two you probably know all about, the disappearing 9-patch and the disappearing 4-patch; the third block is the Intersection Block that I found on Film in the Fridge.


This quilt top measures 77" x 77".  Now, I'm off to contruct the quilt back.
May your bobbins always be full,

The Disappearing Blocks ~ Progress Report!


I have been busy sewing, not posting.  I made 17 Disappearing Four Patch blocks (one didn't make it into the photo!).


Then I made 16 Disappearing Nine Patch Blocks.  I have more blocks to make with a different Disappearing block, then I'll be able to put a quilt top together.

May your bobbins always be full,

The Disappearing Blocks

I've decided to participate in the 2017 Riley Blake Rockstar Fabric Challenge.  I went ahead a purchased the Rockstar fabric, plus five solids that I thought wold work well.  The first blocks I'm making are Disappearing Four-Patch blocks.  

I've decided to participate in the Riley Blake Rockstar Fabric Challenge.  I went ahead and purchased the Rockstar fabric, plus five solids that I thought would work well.  The first blocks I'm making are Disappearing Four-Patch blocks.

I did two test blocks using different fabric from my stash.  I'm using this test fabric in a sampler quilt; so nothing will be wasted.  In case you're interested, the block on the left started with four 7" squares and finishes at 12.5", the smaller block started with four 6" squares and finished at 10.5".


Once the test was done, I started cutting the Rockstar fabric and made 4 blocks, today.  I tried to give them a touch of "modern" by varying the depth of the cuts in the center.  There are many more blocks to go and not all of them will be 4-patch.
May your bobbins always be full,
