Charity Blocks from Guild

I picked up a packet of charity blocks selected from previous block-of-the-month patterns and put them up on the design wall to think about.
five blocksI had enjoyed making the BOMs so was happy to get the kit of five of them and three fabrics. The one fabric is such a large print that  I am thinking of enlarging the block and working that into the design. (I know it is okay also to cut into a large print –can give a nice effect as well.) I’m not planning on a diagonal strip, but placed them that way so all would fit on my design wall. I’d need to make three more of the 12 x 12 blocks to get to a good length for a twin sized top plus additions on the sides to get to sixty inches wide. I have plenty of scraps, but will have to ponder the background.

Here is the link to the directions in case you are also intrigued by the block.

  1. Love the blocks in all the colour ways. What is the charity component?

    • The final destination is various local charities. The guild has a BOM pattern each month and we can choose from three colorways (scrappy, rainbow, black/white/bright); the chair groups blocks into workable-top kits and we can pick them up to finish the top or the whole quilt. I’ll be finishing a top and returning it for someone else to quilt.

  2. I really like those blocks together. I have added this block to my “to do” list 🙂

    I thought that a very fun block…like Vera I think I will add it to my make block idea list too. I know you will have fun coming up with something for this new idea. Can’t wait to see what you figure out.

  4. How beatiful! I love the “string effect”!!!

  5. I really want to see how this one turns out. The blocks look good together, and I like that over-sized print.

  6. Those are really great blocks! I love the look when they’re all put together, kind of like a chain. Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
