Thank you for following along on my blog post last week. The majority of the blocks I have designed for Blockheads are all lovey-dovey inspired. Because I was doing hearts I also decided to add some pinks to my blocks. I get bored easily and that is probably why I lean to doing scrap quilts. More to come on that when it is my turn again.
I love color and love fabrics and since I opened the door for more color, I added a touch of color to this week’s block, 9 Patch Block designed by Laurie Simpson.
You can find the pattern for this block on Laurie’s blog.
I could make an entire quilt using this block pattern.
There are so many options on how you can color it.
I was also thinking this would make a fantastic alternate block
as the setting for my blockhead’s quilt since I am still undecided about the layout.
The little treasures that I added to my pic this week are some sports memorabilia
pins that I have had for a long time. Laurie is a big sports junkie,
so I had to use these pins this week.
There is nothing like putting on a baseball game while sewing.
Do you have a favorite team?
Keep in mind that I have no idea on my layout so I have been making different size blocks and playing with fabrics, but my biggest accomplishment is I am not behind!!

Congratulations on not being behind! Truly that is an accomplishment. I love QALs but usually have to play catch-up periodically. Lol! Your blocks are very pretty, loving the colors you’re using.
