Miss Lizzy Quilt: The First Four Blocks

I’m a little ashamed to say I didn’t discover Angie from Gnome Angel until over the holidays in December when I was taking a much-needed staycation. But I’m so glad I have. As I was going through some of her most recent blog posts, I discovered the Miss Lizzy quilt along she hosted last year. Last year!!¬†You know I love a good quilt along, so I jumped right in. I finished the first four blocks last weekend, so let’s take a look!

Here’s my beautiful Kaffe Fassett bundle I picked up while in Florida last week. It’s so yummy!

And I came right home and got to work.

Block 1: Hydrangea

I’m making two of each of the blocks so I’ll have enough for the layout I chose. I also decided to reverse the feature fabrics and the background to shake it up a bit.

Block 2: Violet

I learned after the first block to make sure the “background” fabrics were different enough from each other that I wouldn’t mix them up!

Block 3: Sunflower

Whew! I got thrown for a loop when I came across this block that needed two “feature” fabrics. I grabbed some Kona Ivory and made it work.

Block 4: Lily of the Valley

Really glad I had a plan already for two “feature” fabric blocks! I had a lot of extra pieces left over after making this block, but it all worked out. So… I guess I did it right?!

This weekend is a four-day weekend for me, so I’m really excited to make some more blocks.
