Quilt Block Cookbook finished blocks!

Quilt Block Cookbook finished blocks!

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely fall. If you've been following our Instagram at all this summer, you have probably seen some blocks we've made out of the Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson. We have a fun selection of fabric designed by Amy, so we figured why not put them together? We added some other fabrics from our shop and made 9 super cute blocks! Let's take a peek! 

Block 2: Cherry On Top

This block has some fun snowball blocks as well as stripes on the corners. I made this a couple of months ago and I JUST realized I have the stripes in the corner blocks going the wrong way! Oh well! This is what we call a happy accident. 

Block 8: Starboard

Kris and I both loved this block from the book. It has stripes in navy (can't go wrong there!) plus magenta and aqua, so it's just a good color scheme. We kept the aqua and pink and accented it with bright yellow. 

Block 11: Dream Weaver

This is a simple block with a cool woven look. It goes together really quickly, so if you want an easy block to start with, try Dream Weaver! 

Block 15: Kings Cross

We seem to really like the 3 x 3 Grid blocks! There's something comforting about a good nine-patch though and so the 3 x 3 blocks just have a classic look that is appealing. This just might be the grooviest block we made, what with the bright orange, hot pink and yellow! 

Block 24: Sun Kissed

I had to refresh my paper-piecing skills for this one! It turned out so sweet though! We love the medium-scale floral print in Amy's fabric line and the larger square in the middle was the perfect spot to highlight the cute bouquets. 

Block 30: Pop Weed

This block requires some machine applique, but it went pretty well! This is another block based on a traditional design (the 8-pointed star), but the petals in the center give it a little extra pizzazz! 

Block 31: Pumpkin Pie

When Kris and I went through the book to decide which blocks to make, we both knew we wanted to make Pumpkin Pie! It may be because we love the fabrics used in the book but I also really love the old-fashioned look of it. (This one also uses paper piecing, but I made Kris do it.) 

Block 32: Flag Day

Here's another bold block! The combination of an X and a plus sign makes for a cool block and we went with a lot of bright fabrics for it again. 

Block 34: Wooded

Who doesn't love some half-square triangles? You have to make quite a few of them, but it's worth it for such a striking block. And I love the navy with two shades of orange. 

Now we're working on a layout for a wall quilt with the blocks and then we'll get quilting, so stay tuned for more updates! Have you made anything from the Quilt Block Cookbook? We'd love to see what you're working on!
