I needed a new project to shake things up a bit, so I made the first block for the quilt based on the Fig Tree Cobblestones pattern.
I changed the block construction to eliminate the Y seams. I know Y seams aren’t that bad. I just didn’t want to deal with them.
The fabrics (excepts the creams) are from the Sincerely Yours line by RJR fabrics. At retreat several years ago I won a bundle of salesman’s samples that contained a piece of every fabric in the line in three different color ways. I could never figure out what to do with the small odd size pieces.
I have fond memories of that retreat. It was the first one hosted by that quilt guild, so it wasn’t very crowded. I talked a friend into going with me, and neither of us belonged to the guild. We didn’t know a lot of the people there, so I got more sewing done than I do at most retreats. I even slept in one morning.
Anyway, love the pattern, love the fabric and I feel drawn to make something with lots of prints. This should do just fine.
