First Block

I have one finished block for my scrappy Fig Tree Harvest far.

This quilt design is made up of two different blocks.  The overall design becomes visible when the two blocks alternate.  I have lots of blocks in a state of partial completeness and wanted to finish one to see how it would look.

The pressing directions in Red Pepper Quilts' tutorial make assembly much easier because all my seam junctions nest and that makes sewing the pieces for the block together easy.  As I assemble the blocks, I'm trying hard not to obsess over what color is next to what color or whether two similar prints wind up next to each other.  This is my tendency but I keep telling myself to let the scraps fall as they may!

  1. It's looking lovely, and I so know that desire to place each block 'just so'. But I think your scraps falling where they may is probably part of the charm of scrap quilts.

  2. Good Choice in fabrics, I love fig tree.

  3. Just pick up and sew. All those Fig Tree fabrics work so perfectly together.


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
