My Day for the 30 Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop

Yahoo it's finally here, my day to participate in Carla's 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop.  If you follow the link you will find tutorials for all of the blocks that are being presented in this Hop.

Carla put out an invitation to the participants to pick a block from her December sew along. This is my quilt from the sew along where I used all 30 blocks.

I chose December 27's block, Broken Strips. In this photo it's the gold block, bottom row, second block from the left.

When I chose the block I had no real purpose, therefore no clear goal.  Then Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict posted the organizations that would be participating in Hands to Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2018 and I knew a quilt using this block was coming.

You will notice that the pictures of my quilt are only of a quilt top.   For the organization that this quilt will be going to, Victoria's Quilts - Canada the contributions were requested to be
"tops only"  This request is intended to keep shipping costs down.

This picture was taken indoors due to weather.  It does nothing for the fabrics. 
I made the blocks and put the top together last month while at my first quilt retreat.  Should have taken the pictures there.  It was a beautiful location on a lake.  Hidesight is as they say 20/20

The out doors in the front of my house was just a tad windy and a bit shady.

Victoria's Quilts gets quilts out to people living with cancer.  I did my blocks in bright greens with blues and a slightly busy background fabric to keep it joyful and happy.

I tried taking pictures in the back of the house and the light was much better.

The fabric is showing up true to actual.  I just don't have a nice flat space to use in the back of the house but I am thankful the breeze let up.

I really enjoyed working with this block and making it my own with color choices.  

Thank you Carla for coming up with this different blog hop concept, it has been fun participating and fun to follow.  The creativity found in these posts is as always amazing.  Here is a list of the participants for the entire Hop.  Do yourself a favor and check them all out.

  3. Nice colors and a great quilt for a great cause!

  4. Your colors are so perfect for this block and thanks for showing off your quilt from the first 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Challenge. This is one of my favorite blocks because you can change the looks so quickly by changing one color. Your quilt is beautiful and someone is going to love it. You are so sweet to join in on the 30 Quilt Blocks is 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along. THANK YOU!!!

  5. A wonderful quilt - great colors - for a great cause! Thank you, Susan

  6. You did a great job with the fabric choices. It is a very happy quilt.

    I have loved this blog hop. . .it is amazing how all the blocks can look so different by just the fabric and setting choices made.
