Here is my first progress photo for our blended quilt challenge project. Can you tell that every other block is a Sawtooth Star? No? Well, that is the concept behind a blended quilt! You want to make some blocks that blend into each other and "moosh" the pattern. I forgot how much fun and also what a challenge it is to pair up florals for these kind of quilts. I made 2 blocks that were ugly as sin and not pictured here, and I know more of those will happen before this is finished, sometimes that's just the name of the game!
Here are my first 10 star blocks. The pattern I've chosen has only 17 stars, mixed with other pieced 4-patches, half-square triangles, large and small squares and rectangles. I have paired up enough fabrics from my floral stash to make about 20 more stars, so I'll either be making my quilt much larger than planned, modify the design a bit, or end up with 2 blended quilts!
Take a look at the blogs belonging to my friends playing along - OKPerisplace (Perry), Sister's Choice Quilts (Nicole) and Too Much Fabric So Little Time (Cindy) and see what they have been up to this week with their florals!
