On a Whim Sewing

I've been working on Camille Roskelley's On A Whim quilt pattern for awhile now.  Remember that Amy Butler Weekender bag I made using Tula Pink Birds and the Bees?  I used the leftover fabric from cutting out this pattern.  This quilt will turn out as amazing as the weekender bag, I'm sure!  For the corners, I'm using a wine-purple linen blend.  I didn't pre-wash it, so I hope it doesn't bleed!  Yikes...  I have 13 of 20 blocks finished and I'm hoping to have the top finished before I move into my first house next month :D

If you have all the pieces cut, these blocks go together pretty quickly!

Starting to come together

Just keep sewing

And soon enough you'll have a finished block!

I threw in an AMH just because it played well with the others :)

On the AYoLF Q3 front, I did manage to baste my blue and yellow patchwork chevron quilt last weekend.  I still haven't settled on a quilting design, so that's on hold for now.  I only have 19 days left to finish so I'd better hustle!

What did you sew this week?

Your block is beautiful. The lines of the tree fabric work really well (did you fussy cut?) in this block and make a lovely impact.

Congrats on your first home! That's exciting, and yes, I hope in between all the packing and planning and logistics, you are able to finish up your quilt top.

It's going to be beautiful!

I really like the block with the squirrel. Nice colors! Love that corner color, but I would bet that it is going to bleed. I would suggest washing your quilt with a handful of color catchers when it's done.
