One Big, One Little

The Silent Garden blocks are so much fun to sew – I just don’t want to stop! So I had to make two more.

First another of the large ones using the gorgeous Kona Bay print.

Then a small mauve and pink one.

Maybe it’s a good thing I haven’t printed all the background shapes as well as the kite and triangle templates on the various fabrics for these blocks as well as the B&B Silent Garden blocks, as I think if I had then I’d not be able to tear myself away from sewing these at all. There are so many great opportunities for continuous piecing that they almost go together too fast! Almost. That said, I’m pretty sure there’s bound to be a lot of printing happening sometime very, very soon! Because I do love to have everything for a project printed and nestled in a pretty project box, just waiting and ready to sew.

However, I’m going to try to be good and pulled out the pieces for another harpsichord block. At this point though, I’m thinking perhaps I should get a bit more realistic and admit I’ll be doing one harpsichord block a week at best while I’m making the fabulous Silent Garden blocks.

The elevator lobby flowers are lovely and tropical looking – which is rather nice, given that we’re in the midst of winter.

  1. Lovely blocks as usual Cathi. Am going to Mexico soon so those elevator lobby flowers just set the right mood. Jake looks sweet but Baxter looks so regal!
