Here are some fun blocks that I started working on when I was in Bryce Canyon at Ruby's Inn. It was a class I took from Leslie and Norma called Summer Days.
This is the block. They are half square triangles pieced together. The circle is appliquéd in the center.Super fun! Super easy!
This is another block that I am doing from Two Peas in a Pod. The quilt is called Swirls. They are paper pieced. Each square is different. The four blocks are pieced together to create the block.. There is a one inch post running through all the blocks.
A quick look at the Penny Lane collection from My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. This is the free pattern I designed for Riley Blake. You can download the pattern here for free.
This is a look at the Wanna Be A cowboy 2 collection from Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs and you can find the pattern here.
There are 3 color-ways in this collection. This being the boy color-way. There is a girl color-way with pinks and browns and a neutral color-way with the browns and creams that can go either way. It is a really cute collection.

I hope these quilts and projects inspire you as much as they do me. They should put you in the mood. Start quilting.
These fabrics are so fresh and happy. The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end... I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.
I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn together to create a 16-patch. The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of 16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.
I love putting black and white with bright colors. It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive. The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares. Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
