Chain Blocks

I finished the chain blocks I've been making with my Rural Jardin fabric collection. They join with the Ohio Star blocks in the Ginger Belle pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

The chain blocks look like quite a mish-mash on their own, but the design comes together when they are combined with the Ohio Star blocks.  I laid the blocks out and tried not to obsess about placement too much.  My usual concern is to get a pleasing spread of color, without too much of one color clumping up in an area.  With all the blocks being such a mix of the various prints, that was not difficult. 

I sewed the blocks together in rows.  Next step is to join the rows then add the pieced border.   But those steps will have to wait for a few days.  I'm off to Chicago on a business trip!

  1. I can't wait to see your Ginger Belle in Rural Jardin, and you are so right, that fabric makes going scrappy easy! Hope you packed your warmest coat and boots for your trip to Chicago!
