Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post. It seems to be unanimous. I am early! Yippee! I hate being late.
The block for this week on the Friday Block Party is called "Rotunda". I really like this pattern. It was easy and it used up strips of fabric that were only 1 1/2 in. wide. I dug into my kid's scrap bag and pulled out a few coordinating fabrics. The block is only 9 in. finished, (9 1/2 in. unfinished) so I didn't need much fabric. I think I will use fun fabrics on all the 9-inch blocks (I am assuming there will be more) and maybe use them to make a baby quilt. I didn't follow the instructions on the quilter's cache site, but rather did mine in strips and then assembled them like a log cabin block. As I was doing that, I thought about a log cabin quilt that I had started several years ago, but never finished.
I decided to dig it out. The blocks are 6 in. (6 1/2in. unfinished) square. I have a huge stack of them! You can see what it is supposed to look like in the photo in front of the blocks.
If I do 9 blocks across and 11 blocks down, I will need 99 blocks. And I already have 90 of them! I'm sure I can do 9 more! By gosh! I think this will be my next finished project.
