Magic 8 ball

I have been participating in the Pinwheel Sampler quilt along like many of you. When I was on block (week) 5, I decided to do two quilts. So I needed to do some major catch up.

As you probably already know, I'm doing one with Natures Notebook - very soft blues, yellows and greens. And also one with a line from last year called Fresh - which is very bright and vibrant. I'm so glad I decided to use Fresh as well because it's become my favorite of the two.

When Rachel over at psiquilt announced that block 8 was on our own.. I have to admit I said "WHAT.. that's a cop-out." But honestly - I am now very happy that she did!

So I went to my Magic 8 Ball.. but it wasn't any help. So I turned to my handy little Block Tool and it gave me many choices. Here are the blocks that I chose to do...

It's called Air Castle (not sure why.. just is).

I still have a few blocks to do - hopefully I will get them finished this week.

I can't decide how to finish the quilt because I want both of them to be large enough for a bed. I may do setting blocks - or larger sashing with mini pinwheels scattered.

The Natures Notebook quilt is a gift for my Mom's b'day - which is only in 4 weeks so I'd better get cracking on that one!!!

Both colourways look good and I am sure your Mum will love the blues.
I think larger sashing with mini pinwheels will look great.

I love your choice of blocks! And both colors are great (although I am partial to blue) :)

I am a bit behind, but hope to get caught up this week. Mine is going to be a graduation gift for a friend of mine! I have to get going too!

Cute blocks. I'm familiar with the Fresh fabric line, I had a couple of charms from it last year. Nature's Notebook is one of my favorite fabric lines. Good choice for your block. Your quilts are going to be so cute.
