Blue-green squares, months later

You last saw this quilt in early October when all I had were these nifty little cores of 43 quilt blocks.

Block cores

Adorable. It’s been 4 months though, and quilts grow up so fast. This is what I’ve got now:

Blue-Green quilt blocks

That’s 49 completed 6.5″ square blocks and 43 block cores. I’ve calculated that I’ll need 195 completed blocks to make a 78″ x 90″ top, so I’ve still got 146 to go. (Which may lead to me deciding to mix completed blocks with cores and unfinished blocks of intermediate size. could be cool.)

    This is just an awesome collection of blocks. So, so fun to stare at all the different color combinations. I think it would look awesome to leave some blocks just as cores. Did you pre-select all your fabrics, or are you adding in as you go?

      Since it’s stashbusting, the colors I used were pretty much whatever scraps I had available in blue and green, then the neutrals that were on hand. I did a bit of tinkering with it and pulled certain colors like the really dark green, grays, and navy blues from my stash of larger bits; but on the whole the blocks just emerged from what was lying closest and looked good.
