Well joy of joys I found myself with some free time this week now that my niece's quilt is done so jumped onto the sewing machine and whipped up some more broken herringbone blocks.
I came across these blocks a few months back when Molli Sparkles shared some photos on Quilt Club Australia and put the tutorial aside to do 'one day'. Wouldn't you know that one day came sooner than planned when Molli (aka Josh) hosted a quiltalong. I did make some then but with all the family dramas going on around here over the last few months I did fall by the wayside and didn't finish.
A while ago I mentioned I was making these blocks and that I had found myself short of a couple of colours and the lovely Susan was kind enough to send me some leftovers she had from her stash. What a lovely lot of leftovers they were too! Thank you so much Susan, they were so helpful, even if it took me a while to get around to using them.
So this is what I came up with. Firstly some deep purples:
Quite a lot of Susan's pieces made it into those two!
Then some blues of varying shades:
All the fabrics in this gorgeous teal blue block above came from Susan's leftovers. Love to see the quilt you made with these, they're gorgeous together!
Here is what I have so far:
More greens to come I think, along with some very dark blues. Perhaps another lighter purple too? I'll just keep making the blocks and working it out as I go I think.
