*opposites attract

You may remember me telling you before, this year I have a number of young people in my life who are graduating and a quilt is in order for many of them.  I have started one. Sigh.  I was on a roll and moving right along there for a while, but sort of hit a brick wall.  All of my blocks for this one quilt are pieced together but not yet sewn together so I can start on the outer borders.  Soon!  I wanted to share with you the amazing things you can do with this one block.  The pattern is called True Blue and it can be found here at The Fat Quarter Shop 

This is in the individual block...

These are 4 of the ways you can lay this out, there were more.  I stopped at four and this is not all the blocks, but was enough to get an idea of how the quilt would look in each lay out.

This one is my favorite and it just so happens that the sweet young lady getting it chose this as her favorite layout too!  So it shall be!

This week it is my goal to get these all sewn together and get some outside border on it, or at least sewn together!



  1. The 3Rd Is My Favorite Also, But I'm Wondrring What The Individule Block Looks Like. I'll Go Look At The Shop.

  2. That's really cool! I would have a tough time choosing a pattern I like best, they're all pretty neat.

    I'm starting my first quilt this week after I purchase a rotary cutter. My SIL purchased a wall hanging kit but decided she didn't want to attempt it and gave it to me. (I guess she knows I like a good crafting challenge, lol!) I'm going to make it and then give it back to her. I just hope I do it justice.

    Good luck on getting the quilt sewn together this week!
