Pre-Cut Project

Right before leaving for the beach, I put together a few blocks of some precuts I'd been dying to use. You can go back to this post to see my initial blocks. I had two charm packs and one jelly roll of fabric all by American Jane of Moda. The charm packs are Savonnerie; the jelly roll is Lorraine. They play oh-so-well together. Just take a look.



The centers are all Savonnerie charm pack squares; the strips surrounding them are Lorraine. Can you tell any difference? Anyone would think these were all from the same line. I am extremely pleased with this project so far. I will set it aside for awhile, though, because I need to get back to work on those commissions I have agreed to do.

When I do come back to this, I have one more charm pack and some ends of the jelly roll left over. I'd like to be able to make this larger, and I will just need to see what I can come up with. Additionally, I have a tub of remnants of an earlier American Jane line called Breath of Avignon. I've checked. Those remnants will play nicely with these fabrics, also. I will figure out a way to incorporate them.

Sharon was here Tuesday and she worked on her Lorraine fabric, too, while I finished the 42 blocks you see above. Tomorrow I will show you what Sharon's plans are.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

I agree, these two lines do play well together. The blocks are so bright and pretty. And you made 42 in one day! That's a selling point for making the block. I am excited to see the whole top complete with all of the fabrics mixed together and having a blast.
