Cloud 9 New Block Blog Hop
Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs and Stephanie at Late Night Quilter are the hosts of this fantastic event. For three days, each host in turn has arranged for 20 or so quilters to present their own block, on one of those day , made with a selection of fabric fat quarters donated from Cloud 9. All of the finished blocks will be assembled into quilts and donated to a charity.
I scrolled through the blogs each night, and found so many I really liked, it was hard to select the ones I have made. Here they are.
This was the first one, called “ Porthole” and this seemed to jump out and say “ Make Me”. Memories of my dear friend Walter who served in HMS, and I wondered if at any time in all those years on mine laying manoeuvres, did he have a porthole in his bunkroom?I sent a photo to Leanne at Devoted Quilter as this was her designed block, and received the most lovely reply.
Next up was one from Daisy at Ants to Sugar . this gave me a little trouble, but again a superb pattern, and although I used only 3 fabrics, am happy with it. I tried to find your email address, Daisy, but failed, so left you a comment. I do like this layout so much, and am sure I will be making
ONE. lots more.
Finally, a strippy one from Stephanie at Late Night Quilter,Again, I had to alter her pattern slightly, as I was using batiks I had in my stash/box/ cupboard… and didn’t have enough of the blues.. these will go with sashing either side of Leanne’s Porthole to make a table runner.
All is well here, I have not needed a B&B away from home, with transport provided, for a week now, and am so thankful for that. And again, I thank you for your words, care, support and more all over again.
