Designing Monday

Our guild had a Chinese auction in Nov. 2012 and I won a little brown lunch bag full of Thangles Buck a Block patterns with fabric.  There were 20 blocks total.  I made the blocks soon after and put them away until I decided what to do with them.  It took a year, but I finally decided to make two quilts and donate them to the guild's soldier quilt program.  I had to make 4 more blocks and at the end of quilt camp, I started to sash them but ran out of time.

This week I got one of the two quilts sashed and now have it all put away again.  I have other fish to fry, so they will sit for awhile until I can get back to them.

I also got my Valentine quilt quilted and bound in time for the holiday.  Yea!

Hop on over to Judy's blog  to see more beautiful designs.


  1. Your Valentine's quilt is adorable! And the Soldier quilts will be lovely. Thank you!

  2. The mustard-yellow sashing sets off the sampler blocks very well. The Valentine quilt is very appealing!

  3. What a nice way to put those blocks to use!
    Love the little Valentine quilt!!

  4. I agree with Nan... Love the fabric you used for the washing with the sampler blocks... really sets them off!
    And the Valentine quilt is just cutest... Love the scrappy look to it!

  5. Very fun thangles blocks and the Valentine quilt is lovely.

  6. Your soldier quilt is beautiful; the golden sashing brings the subdued shades of the blocks to life.
