Caught Up

I've been trying to keep up with the Solstice Challenge blocks, but Block 19 from the week I went to Paducah didn't get made until later.

Here are the first 19 blocks on my wall before I took them down to work on the tree project. Several have been modified to suit me. There's also an extra block that I made to test out my new cutter.

Block 19 was another large and complicated one (think Parcheesi board) so I modified it a bit to 12".

Block 20 didn't require modification. What a difference lighting makes; the photos above were taken indoors on a dreary day and the one below in the same location on a bright day. The color is better in the photo below.

So I'm caught up through week 20; only five weeks to go. I definitely like some of the blocks better than others. Not sure I'll use them all in the final layout; we'll see.

Linking up with Patchwork Times, Em's Scrapbag, Love Laugh Quilt


  1. I can understand needing to wait and see how the final layout comes together. Maybe a slightly pieced backing with any extra blocks?

  2. Nice job on all your blocks. I have been following along but haven't started making the blocks yet. I have been burned before with a fabric choices I didn't like after the quilt was all put together . . . so I am reluctant to try one again. I love your fabric choices - they look great together. ~smile~

  3. I like what you did with block 19. I may have to try something like that one of these days. Both blocks look great.

  4. FYI - Since Judy Laquidara is no longer doing "Design Wall Mondays", I talked to her and got permission to continue Design Wall Mondays at my blog:
