Last block & ready for camp

I've finished the last 12" block for Gramercy & Friends. You can see the others in Monday's post below.
Last 12" block for Gramercy & Friends

I've also cut the pieces for the two 24" blocks, bagged them, and packed everything up for quilt camp next month. I hope to get the two large blocks finished. Then when I come home I can lay them out on my design wall and determine the placement. I've also tucked the leftover fabrics for these blocks into the kit, just in case of an oopsie.

As you can see, one of the large blocks is a Swoon block. The other is similar, but the orientation of some of the flying geese units is reversed, and there are more of them. And the placement of lights and darks is different. Three of the fabrics are the same in both blocks. I like how the focal blocks will be related but different, and how there's a circular aspect to them due to the value placement.

Now to find something else to work on until quilt camp...
Meanwhile, I'm linking up with Lorna at Lets Bee Social and Lee at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Ohhh quilt camp sounds like fun :) I love your Gramercy & Friends Block

  2. You are so tidy and prepared! I think I would have a hard time keeping myself from working on these beforehand... but a new project is a fun new prospect, too!

  3. These are lovely blocks. Your work is very precise.

  4. These blocks are so soothing and striking at the same time. Beautiful!
