Vintage blocks are fun

My vintage block quilt is growing...



9 circle blocks done and another couple to make I think

3 square blocks done and three, perhaps five more to do

45 propeller blocks done and at least nine more to make!

Thinking of starting with the square blocks as I have a few I fancy making.

This one might be the first...



I think the description sums it up!

  1. Nicky, this is going to be gorgeous! How are you going to add the circular blocks? Will you square them up or applique them to a background square?

  6. This is going to be so beautiful. Does "extra care is needed" really translate to "will drive you mental"?

  7. I love this new layout of the blocks - the change from propeller blocks behind the square blocks to (?) charm squares behind the circle blocks really works. I adore the winding walk block and may have to make one myself!!
