Vintage Quilt Revival Blocks Week 5

Week 5 I'm halfway through 10 more blocks to go! The top block is called Red Cross. I know I made them yellow but I have to spread the colors so thats what I came up with. The bottom block is the Rolling Squares block. I laid all the blocks out so far and I think this is going to be one gorgeous quilt when I get done. The colors are so vivid against the white background. This is going to be a special gift for a special girl in my life, I hope she likes it.

Vintage Quilt Revival Blocks Week 4

Week 4 : Moving right along.  The top block  is the Riviera block. I have had the floral fabric I used in the middle and the border for so long and every time I went through my stash I thought to myself, why do I have this fabric? I think I have always liked it because of its bold colorful busy- ness. I could never find anything to go with it so I have had it for a long long time. I found the perfect fit with this block and am delighted with the outcome.
The bottom block is the Dakota Star. This one is made with a vintage fabric. I love this block and wouldn't mind making a whole quilt of this one.

I made  the Classic diamond panes block (red and yellow) and the Classic mosaic no.19 block (pinks). I enjoyed making them both.
