Thursday Chat

I’m not getting nearly as much sewing accomplished this week as I had planned for various reasons. But the week has not been a total loss!

I’m in the middle of quilting a customer quilt and will have that finished (fingers crossed!) in a day or so. Then I can get back to the blue/mustard quilt. I like how the quilting looks so far and am excited to work on it again.

I also have to kick it in gear and do another wholecloth baby quilt – I think my niece is going to have her baby earlier than her expected late June due date!

Today I’m sharing a bee block I made for our May Queen – Miss Julie of Pink Doxies fame. Last year when I joined in the Bee Hive bee I asked for this very block in shades of blue/teal/green/aqua and it made a beautiful quilt (see more here.)

Julie has asked for a black/gray/white version of the Chainlink block.

I have to say, I’m super obsessed with this block. It makes me want a black/gray/white quilt in the worse way!

These fabrics were pulled from my scrap bins and I have no idea what the two corner prints are. I know they came in a layer cake, but I can’t find which one. I’m on the hunt! If I can find yardage of these I will be making more of these blocks in the future.

Does anyone have a clue what they are?

Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation.

I'm a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get "licking the spoon" mixed up with "licking the fabric"!!

  1. Sorry, ladies, but I can’t wait until I lay my hands on that gorgeous block! Very sophisticated, and right up my alley. I’m so grateful, Beth. Thank you.

  2. Wonderful way to use your scraps. That is a lovely block, Beth! I can see why you are obsessed with it 🙂

    Julie’s going to have a beautiful quilt if all the blocks are as gorgeous as yours. I can see why you want to make one for yourself. I really like the teal one too though. I’d be hard pressed to pick just one.

    That block is very sophisticated and elegant. And did I say, “I love it?” Wow, do I ever. The print in the corner blocks are called Whisper Prints Design, 14743 by Studio RK for Robert Kaufman. I’m looking at the selvedge edge. I used that in a light gray for the blocks in the 2015 Midnight Mystery Quilt. If you can’t find more, I have lots of scraps, and about 2 yards. It was on the market last summer – that’s when I bought it too. I have seen some of it for sale out there, but I am not sure what shops.

    I can’t wait to see that quilt finished. I think a quilt in those neutrals will be very pretty!!

  8. That is a nice block done in black and white with grey. I like that tone on tone white.
