Half of Jo's Blocks

I am half way through making my little 6 1/2" blocks from Jo Morton's 
book "Prairie Flowers Encore".

It is always good to lay out your blocks at this stage and consider the colours in more detail.
Up until now I have just been choosing what I like for each block on its own. 
Now I need to make sure my quilt has a balance of colours.
So I think I need to be careful not to use too much more red and I need more blue and 
purple and gold - so some more colourful blocks coming up.

 I have already cut the backgrounds so they are balanced although they don't look like 
it in this photo!

Now off to the sewing room to try the layout I think I will like. So watch this space!

Oh a day off and in the sewing room is great. I have already finished off preparing one 
more Yoko Saito block today and it is only 10.30am.

See you soon, Robyn


  1. Gosh you have been busy and what cute little blocks you have stitched. Sorry I haven't been around much, I've been off on retreat ; )

  2. Our Blue Moon quilt group is considering making this quilt. They will be convinced after seeing this! Nice to see you back Michele - wondered where you have been!

  3. I just love them. Hope the rest of your day off went well.
