So this weekend I made my Madrona Corners top (which I finished at 2am on Sunday) and then on Sunday I got down to it and finished the last blocks I needed to add to the ones my Brit Bee buddies, plus guest, made for me for my Retro Flowers quilt.
Unfortunately right now Madrona Corners is too big to get a photo of indoors, and it’s been snowing again (you really have to be kidding me!) so it’ll have to wait til later in the week when I can get to my pet multi-storey on a dry day. In the meantime though, I can show you my Retro Flowers:
The rest of my blocks consist of 1 other orange one, 12 aqua ones and 11 grey ones. I totally stole the reversed block idea from Di, ‘cos, you know, she’s a smart lady like that. As I looked at these I realised that I probably wouldn’t have chosen most of these oranges now, but last July when I cut them all, this was all I had, and you know what, it wasn’t worth wasting fabric by cutting a bunch more from my now much bigger orange stash.
My final layout will be 5 x 6, with 2 aqua, 2 grey and 1 orange per row, in a random order, so if you’ll excuse me, I need to go play with some arrangements…
oooh – can't wait to see all the blocks together!
It's gonna be really pretty! Happy playing!
Oh those colors are going to be great!!!
I think your oranges are good! I have a teeny orange stash–I think like 2 things are in it…which is odd, because I love orange.
Beautiful retro flowers; love the reverse idea! Jxo
Cool, cool, cool. I can't wait to see these all together. Loving the reversed idea too 🙂
Gorgeous! So all about orange for me lately – I may have to steal it. 🙂
Pretty and I like the oranges you used.
I'm not usually a fan of orange, but i LOVE these, they are really sunny, and i love the reversed blocked, good steal! :o)
Your quilt sounds great! Sorry about the snow, we had a lot in the last few days too although the sun is out and the sky blue today.
Absolutely fabulous…darling 🙂
Not into ornage all that much bu these are fabulous. Tons of snow over here, too. Wish it'd sod off already…
Very pretty….love orange!!
Oh I love the orange and grey together. And I love the Retro flowers, but as I'm allergic to curves, I won't be making it! Maybe I could make this my block for Stitich Tease?
Wonderful big orange retro flowers!!
GORGEOUS!!! Love the colours, yummy orange!
That is going to be gorgeous!! Just perfect colour matches.
I don't envy you those curves, thanks for the tip again, it made them perfect, but the cutting nearly sent me over the edge!!!
I love those blocks.Very retro and very cool!
So looking forward to seeing this one xxx
those blocks are fab-u-lous!
Once again, your flowers look perfect! 🙂
Do you put colours together in your sleep?????
Love your Retro Flower blocks – I have been wanting to try this pattern too.
ooooh nice. Looking forward to seeing the rest of them.
Absolutely gorgeous! I'm surprised how well Summersville works in these blocks, my f8 bundle may now have a purpose…
I love these blocks, so colourful and I think the prints are great. Can't wait to see it put together
Love these! The orange is just perfect.
Looking forward to seeing them all together
