Patchique Quilt Project Week 2 Blocks #3 and #71
I love sewing on a fall day, with a blue sky, the cooler temperatures, and the beautiful leaves turning gold, orange, and red.
And I actually got a lot of sewing accomplished this weekend.
|Sew Along with Amanda @ The Patchsmith blog|
with Japanese Taupe Quilts book by Susan Briscoe

The directions - sew together 27 small pieces of fabric. (Yikes! Will my block be square after all of that?) I shouldn't have worried .... Amanda figured out a more concise way.... sew together long strips of the two colors, and cut them into 3 segments, to then piece together. See her blog post on how she made her block. I love Amanda's gift of un-complicating patterns.
The next: #71 Mizuno kengata rokuyo (Mizuno sword-shaped six leaves)

I decided to bring in some of the red colors now , with this block.
I love how it popped out!
Here are all 4 blocks so far.....
