Ovarian Cancer: CYTL Blocks 20-24

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 😉
