Floribunda #17: Blocks 29 and 30

The last two blocks are done.

They’re the bottom left and right corners of the quilt front, and I really like them, particularly the first one!

This is currently the final layout for the front. I won’t be starting to join anything for a while yet, as I’ll be cutting backing and batting and sashing, so if you see any obvious issues with this layout, tell me what you think. I don’t promise to change it, but I’ll certainly take notice.

Remember the fabric I bought for the quilt backing?  I was afraid there wouldn’t be enough. I was right, but it’s not as bad as I thought. I only need to make 4 blocks for the back, one for each corner. I’ll use fabrics in black & white, yellow, orange and orange-rust, to pick up the colours of the fabric. I don’t know what pattern I’ll be using yet, but it needs to be simple, because of both time and how the quilting and assembly works.

I actually have a fair bit of the batiks left. Maybe enough to make myself something pretty as a reminder of a fun and colourful project.

The next couple of days are going to be a bit busy 🙂

      I’ll be cutting backing and batting and sashing strips. Not a lot to actually show for it, but it’ll mean I can start quilting shortly. Hmmm. Thread colour’s the next question.

    I can’t see anything I’d change – it’s going to be another beauty.

    • katechiconi says:

      No, I don’t think there’s anything I want to change either, but you know what it’s like; sometimes you look at something so long you can’t ‘see’ it properly any more.

    I love this so much. If it were me I would rotate the top right block clockwise once. If that makes sense.

    • katechiconi says:

      Thanks! I know the blocks on this one have been featured a lot, but logging their production has been the best way of keeping me up to the mark. I won’t be doing the same with the quilted blocks, I’ll probably show a chunk of them at a time.

  9. Beautiful! I love the greens and purples!

  10. What a thing of beauty, Kate. This is lovely.

    Spectacular! I love this Kate! 💞

  12. Oh Kate! It’s even more stunning all together. I couldn’t imagine how this was coming together. I just love how all the different backgrounds made the pattern.

    • katechiconi says:

      Yes, it works, somehow! I’m currently cutting the backing fabric and have made the four corner blocks. Next task is the batting, and then I can start sandwiching and quilting 🙂

  13. Terri says:

    Just beautiful Kate!!

  14. Oh, oh, oh, that first block is a joy. I like the whole quilt, but some of the blocks are particularly wonderful, that one being a case in point.

  15. […] crochet anything complex, but it will be nice to pick it up again. I also have this gorgeous case hand-crafted by Kate to keep me motivated. Isn’t it […]
