This is the first block for a couch quilt for DD Erica. She wanted something simple to go with a gorgeous Persian rug. I used my GO! Cutter and 2.5" strip die a lot for this project.
For the cross blocks, I pulled from stash this gorgeous hand-dyed yard of fabric I have been hoarding. This is a Ricky Tims fabric purchased at one of his seminars I went to with my sister in 2006--so it is well aged and I'm happy to have it stay in the family, lol.
The green is a Dimples fabric DD Erica chose. Backing and binding fabric is a gorgeous plum with a printed spray of ginkgo leaves in gold--I don't have a pic of that yet. I've had many hours of happy cutting and piecing so far, although I did spend several hours mistakenly making star point sections for the green chain block :( However, all was not lost; I whacked off 2.5 x 4.5" strips of the background Kona cotton from them to use for the corner chain sections. Nine more blocks to go of each color before setting together for the smaller size quilt I'm making from the pattern. I have something special planned for one block.
