Having Fun

I sewed and sewed and then came to a screeching halt. I need more 5” charm squares to make more 16 patches. So I’ve quickly placed an order and now will wait for Mr. Postman to bring my little package.

Here’s a sneak peek at my 16 patches with framed 4 patches – next week I’ll show you the finished quilt.

edit: the blocks are set on-point

Oh Darlene, that is a bummer! Your concept for the way you have put those 16 patch blocks together is just brilliant. I am kicking myself for not buying that fabric group! Your quilt is going to be the best!

Wendy said...

Love it...Love it...
Your quilt is fantastic.

Vicky said...

Awesome! Dibbies!

You surely have inspired me on this mountain of charm packs. :)

Beth said...

oh I LOVE that setting! Mind if I borrow that for my next Quilt of Valor? I just hit my local Hancocks that is going out of business. I stocked up on some neutrals and reds/blues. Time to plan the next quilt!

Oh, my friend, this is another WINNER ! You were so inspired with this setting ! (I wish I had "light bulbs" like yours ! LOL). The quilt is so fresh, and in the meantime it has that "oldie", romantic look, that we love ! BRAVO !

I love this fabric - I bought four pack of squares about a month ago. I think I know what to do with them but it is great to see your plan. I am not a pink person but I just love that pink. Can't wait to your finished quilt.

Libby said...

I love it! It looks so fresh and happy. Hope you find something fun to play with while you're waiting for the postman *s*

Great use for those charm packs that we all get so addicted to. I love your choice of fabrics. I am inspired to do something with my charm pack rather than just admire them like they are some sort of trophy...(LOL)

Marcie said...

Darling blocks and fabric Darlene. And I love the setting! Very nice!

Nicole and Phil said...

This is looking great.I hope the postman delivers soon....we don't want it turning into a UFO! ;)

ruth said...

It's beautiful, I hope the post(wo)man comes for you soon.

Hi Darlene :-)
I have not been very good at commenting lately, but I have enjoyed your blog. Today I went back and read again all from January and February.
So many lovely quilts you have in the making!
I feel like starting 4-patches right away. Thanks for a smart tutorial. I like all the different blocks you have going. The rabbit quilt is to die for :-)
You do outstanding and beautiful work on all you do!
Very belated happy anniversary for me too!

Feeling Simply Quilty said...

I hate when that happens-running out of fabric to finish a quilt. At least you are making a charm quilt, you don't have to hunt forever looking to match one exact fabric.

Patti said...

Oh, I LOVE how this is looking! Simply marvelous! Those 40's prints are just too much fun!

happy Zombie said...

I love the alternating blocks! I can't wait to see what your quilt looks like when done!

I'm a charmaholic and love seeing what's being done with them, and this one you did really floats my boat!

Your setting is really fantastic - would work well with so many different fabrics, but I have to tell you - your fabric choices are yummy!

Cheers!
