A very exciting squishy this morning!
5 gorgeous new Can You Teal the Love blocks from my lovely friend Chippy, a.k.a. Vera of Life by a Compass, not a Clock.
She’s new to the Ovarian Cancer quilt team, but is certainly making up for lost time.
I’m constantly amazed at how all the blocks I’m sent are so different and the fabrics so varied. Note that sadly the photography makes several of the fabrics look much too blue, despite my retouching efforts. It’ll look much better in natural daylight!
I love that she’s been a little adventurous and has included fabrics which are not totally ‘safe’ choices, but which work so very well to make the blocks, and ultimately the quilt, more interesting.
I also love that she’s worked with my beloved hexies to make the heart in this year’s theme. Look how fabulous those tiny darlings are!
Thank you, Chippy, love your work!
We now only 6 more blocks to go, and there’ll be enough to start the first layout, always my favourite part of assembling these quilts.
I just have to be patient (never my strong suit) and let the various postal services do their jobs….
And now, back to quilting something else altogether 😉
I’ve been following Chippy’s creations via Insta & FB… so happy to see these lovely pieces have made their way to you ♡
Yes, she’s been sending me photos too, to make sure she was on the right track. Which she was, of course!
Aren’t they pretty! I must say, I’m biased in favour of the hexie-heart!
Wow, so pretty and hats off to tiny hexies.
Aren’t they adorable?
I love the creativity of these blocks
The quilt as a whole is going to look fabulous
It’s going to be special. But then, ALL the ovarian cancer quilts are because of the love that goes into making them.
They really are, and I love her fabrics, too.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and so so happy to be a part of this wonderful cause. I was apprehensive to say the least but as always Kate is my guiding light 🥰
It’s going to be awesome seeing then in the quilt ❤️
We’re glad to have you with us 😊
These are brilliant! I love the hexie hearts too. Each one different but so perfect. Very impressive.
I have a layout already evolving, and all the blocks work together so well, it’s amazing! Not too many to go now, and I can make a start.
