A BOY AND A GIRL, AN ALBUM block #2


Heavens, it worked! I was trying to upload this pic a few hours ago and it wouldn't go, I was watching the grey status bar doing yo yos for half an hour or so. No idea what went on then.

So, this is the next block, there are 9 in total, finished size is 20" x 20" and the applique pieces are pretty big and not too many elements - easy peasy. Five of the blocks have figures in them and the other four have crossed sprays or round wreaths. A pretty simple quilt and you can gather up all the Kaffe Collective fabrics.
Did you know that there are new fabrics in Philip Jacob and Brandon Mably? PJ's Curly Baskets is right up my alley, lots of use for the fabric, like the his Shell and Scallop. Have a look, also Kaffe's Lake Blossom fabrics are back. I drooled over these newbies last night! K

  5. Your new quilt, block by block, is really going to energize the blog. Thanks for giving us some hints about the size and scope of the new quilt. I, too, have been drooling over Philip's Curly Baskets. Hmm, do I need it in every colorway?

  6. Hello, Kim. The block is fabulous! Love it and thanks for the heads up on the K,P and B fabrics. Was your photo over a MB in size. That's usually why it takes mine so long to upload. I try to resize mine so they will go better. Look forward to seeing more blocks!

    1. No, the photo was a small email jpeg, I think I had a glitch in the computer. Those fabrics are yummy aren't they.
