First up were the Hugs & Kisses blocks from the Mid-Century Modern bee. I had 13, and was thinking of making a couple more, and then somehow pull them into a quilt.
Thanks to the thoughtful suggestions of others, I moved away from my standard 'row' quilt, turned all 13 blocks on point, and made something quite unexpected, which I named Common Affection.
Next up were the first five blocks from don't call me betsy's Lucky Star BOM.
Trying to be a little improv-y, I came up with Auspicious Sky, which was a stretch in more ways than one. My favorite part was using the mix of shot cotton (the main background fabric) accented with bits of Essex Yarn Dyed Denim and Kona Nightfall. With all of them and the Architextures in the stars, I was working with some of my very favorite fabrics.
And finally, there were those x and + blocks, which I'd been swapping and collecting for ages!
So that's that! And wouldn't you know, I have whole new stacks of blocks to add to my Q3 list!
