I’m trying to find different headlines for the posts about these blocks, with varying degrees of success. Looking for the breaking news? You’ll have to scroll down.
First another brown & blue Silent Garden block – this will be block 4 of row 3. I really like the movement in this block!
Then block 4 of row 3 of the Tranquil Garden top.
And a Not So Silent Garden block. This is definitely one of my favourites so far of these blocks. I have no idea where it will end up in the top as I need to get the first row together and then add a second row before I can even begin to sort out how the blocks will be laid out.
The backs of the three Silent Garden blocks are all similar to this once pressed and their seams graded.
So that’s three blocks for three of the quilt tops.
For the fourth top, there’s a trio of green Harpsichord blocks and these are the last of the green blocks for that top – I think. More on that to come on Wednesday.
First a dark olive green one.
Then a medium sea green one.
And a second medium sea green block.
The backs of all three are virtually identical to this once pressed and their seams graded.
Now we’re up to six blocks for four quilts.
Finally, the seventh block which is for the fifth top, another of the little 9-patch blocks on point.
What’s the breaking news about? Well, all of the Silent Garden tops and the Harpsichord top and the 9-patches as well as the York Lodge quilt that I’m determined to make at least a block or two of
may just – will definitely be put on the back burner for a bit. Because of…

I remember seeing this design in a quilt book years ago when I first began quilting and being immediately drawn to it. But now – with Inklingo? I know this design could be absolutely spectacular with some fussy cut/printed diamonds for the centre star or perhaps for the kites surrounding them. That and then all that lovely curved stitching and loads of continuous sewing? Pure bliss. I’m already thinking about fabric combinations for it.
Baxter was just dozing off on a lazy warm Sunday evening after dinner. We’re having another couple of days of heat and high humidity. It doesn’t seem to bother him at all.
