Ipanema Blocks Quilt


Surprisingly (to me at least), I have several finished projects to write about.  I'll take them one at a time though and start with this quilt.  I know I already showed this photo on Monday but I wanted to dedicate an actual post to this quilt.



This was another project I did for the Birch Organic Fabrics blog.  You can see the tutorial by clicking here.  And you can see all of the fabrics in this collection by clicking here.


I really like this fabric collection.  As with their other collections, it is a truly wonderful mix of fun novelty prints and seriously awesome blenders.  I especially love the yellow geometric print  - it also comes in blue - I can see using that print again and again.  



The design I used is very beginner-friendly and is easily customizable.  I really like figuring out designs that allow you to vary your block sizes for personalized fussy cutting.  



That's it for today.  I'll be writing more posts soon including letting you know the outcome of the projects I talked about in last week's post as well as a post about something very special and totally unexpected that came in the mail yesterday that seriously left me speechless!!!

And if you haven't already, click here to enter the giveaway of some of this gorgeous Ipanema fabric from Fabricworm/Birch Organics Fabrics.
