182 Summer/winter solstice challenge

I worried on block 8 & 9 of the challenge. Wow. I didn't know they were such big blocks.
Block 8 is 18"
Made to size . Applique is stitched and I am up to date...
Block 8

Block 9 is 32".
All my half square triangles are made, trimmed and ready to sew into the big block...
Ready to be stitched.

A 32" centre star block

My background fabric is running out quickly. I will keep going until I run out of fabric then I will put the blocks together some how.
These fabrics are looking so good together...


  1. I do like the colors of this one. I think we tend to stay away from neutrals and go for the big bang but this is really, really nice!

  2. I'm working on the solstice, but I'm making my blocks all 12", I'm really liking the way the big blocks look.

  3. Just beautiful. I love that soft colourway Jo x

  4. Yes, these fabrics are playing with each other beautifully.

  5. Crickey, the 32" block is practically a baby quilt side! Well done for making the block. Pretty neutral colours.

  6. Sew nice to make a quilt with such big blocks... just love the fabric combo...

  7. both looking good, I am enjoying making them too but using scraps fro mine, it is the first bit of applique I have done by machine so felt I have achieved something!


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
