One Block Wonder Encore and Quiet Village

This is my sewing room, yep it's nice and clean. That "trash can" is really my scrap can. Every time I finish a project, the usable pieces get gathered up and thrown in there. As you can see, I'm in desperate need to make a scrap quilt. That's next on the agenda.

But for now, I'm working on these 2 quilts, the Quiet Village, from Mccall's Quilting magazine and the One Block Wonder Encore. I'm using this soft color fabric for my first quilt and then I think I'll try a little different color way, with this black and neon colored fabric. I'll be doing the aligning and cutting of strips today. It seems I need a 60 degree ruler! Maybe I'll use some tape and make my own-you know mark it on one of my bazillion rulers I already own. I even have a Kaleidoscope ruler, but, this particular ruler is different than the required one for this pattern. Ah well, that's why we have our LQS and Joann's.

Your little village is lovely, it's soft colors remind me Mediterranean village by the water.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I look forward to seeing how your one-block-wonder turns out. That first fabric is fab. And yes, you do need that particular shape of ruler...other wise you end up with a boring old stack and whack :) I got mine from Kathy Smith in Maryland, are you on any lists with her?

I've made two quilts from that book and they are both stunning. I got the fabric and special ruler from Blue Bamboo in Minneapolis. They have a website if you Google them.

I love your Villages quilt! And reading later posts - I see you have mastered the other pattern - it will be fun to see it made up in both fabrics! Cheers! Evelyn
