Playing around with blocks and some pretty quilts

I was playing around with my blue and white and PA German blocks tonight.

I picked up the 2011 calendar from the Packwood Museum on our trip earlier this summer.  Here are some pretty quilts from the calendar.


  1. Amazing what a twist and turn can do with a bunch of blocks, isn't it? I really like that quilt with the scallops in the border! ---"Love"

  2. love the blue and white blocks I have been dreaming of making a blue and white quilt, great blues. I hope someone comes out with a great blue line soon!

    ah cheddar nothing better

  3. So much you can do with one block! What about a quilt that combines all the different settings in the one colorway?


  4. I love the blue and white blocks....but then I saw the blue/yellow and red/green and I loved those too. Fun to play around with the blocks. Amazing how different the setting makes them look.

  5. Those chunky swags on the Irish Chain are wonderful!

  6. I like those swags too! Such inspiration and your little blocks look great.

  7. All of your show and tell is inspirational!

  9. We learn so much when we play! Plus it's so fun!
