I only had a few inches left of my background fabric and I wanted to see how many more blocks I could get out of it.
A-3 Hunter's Moon is alphabetically the first block in this "need to see how many blocks I can get" frenzy.
This one has been my favorite since the first time I made it ten years ago: A-13 Starlight Starbright. I don't think it is the name that does it...........
B-9 Tinker Toy. The name asked for a more playful fabric, a lot of umbrellas. This fabric choice doesn't show the actual pattern very well. Perhaps I should have used two slightly different fabrics?
At this point I was running out of background fabric. This is B-12 Starflower
This is another block that doesn't use much background fabric, D-6 Challenge
J-3 Rick's volleyball net
To get some dept into this quilt I need some really dark fabric. Black is a good choice for J-5 John Jacob's Windmill.
This is the last block with this fabric with cute small bows. I ran out when I made J-8 Anna's Anchor :)
J-9 Maury High School. Are the students playing?
Perhaps I should have used this fabric for the J-9 block? Perhaps, but it suits J-10 Chieko's Galla Lily as well.
This is another favorite J-12 Rebecca's Basket. With this block done, I now have all the blocks in row J done.
Continnuing with K-1 Croocked Creek.
K-3 Seven Sisters. There are some mountains surrounding the town of Bergen in Norway, that have the same name: Seven Sisters.
This is K-4 Thea's Turn. I'm sure you understand why I picked blocks like this at the end :)
K-5 Passing Through
I didn't worry about the background fabric when I made this one: K-6 Ann's Folly
K-9 Scouts Honor. I was a girl scout in the earlier parts of my life :)
K-11 Columbine. This is the only block with this fabric. Got it from one of my friends in the US some years ago. That's why I can't remember her name but I'm very grateful. With this block even the K row is now complete.
M-9 Fan Dance. Suitable fabric for a fun block. Somehow it seems that I have a hard time learning to mirror my blocks when I print out the pp pattern. I did the same mistake when I made this one for my first DJ, and I hand pieced that one! At the moment I now have a total of 106 blocks out of 169 and I have used 1495 pieces. Still not sure if I'm making all the triangles as well. Until I can find a suitable new fabric for the background, I'm going to take a rest from making DJ blocks.
Come by tomorrow for a small surprise (competition).
