Amanda Made a Quilt with Block #4!

It's always such a delight to see the creative projects being posted to the Leah Day Quilting Facebook Group every day, and today I got an extra treat! Amanda B shared two beautiful photos of a quilt top she's pieced using Block #4 from the Machine Quilting Block Party!

Isn't this great!? The blocks are set up with 2 1/2 inch sashing strips and squares to create a extra 9-patch quilt block effect in the center. I love it when a quilt design creates bonus blocks like this!

I love how Amanda took the pattern from one block and turned it into such a beautiful quilt. This is definitely giving me ideas for playing with our past and future quilt blocks to see what beautiful quilts we can make with just one block design.

Thank you so much Amanda for letting me share your pictures on the Free Motion Quilting Project. It's definitely inspired me to keep piecing and playing with creative patchwork designs.

Let's go quilt,

  1. Great color choices. I like the way the purple stars are sort of hidden, then pop. : )

  2. That is stunning! Thank you both for sharing with us.
