Mosaic Block with Terrain, Central Park, and a Pezzy Print

I'm so glad to be back at my machine after a couple of weird weeks. I jumped right back in with some Summer Sampler Series blocks that the Austin Modern Quilt Guild is making to swap and donate. I'm so glad the guild is doing this, because it's really forced me to try some new things, like this Mosaic block!

My stash is small, but I do have a few good fabrics to pull from. What's not to love about anything made by Kate Spain? I like these Terrain and Central Park fabrics together. Plus, Aqua turned out to be my favorite Pezzy Print color after working with it in the Empire quilt. I had to throw some in this little block, too. 

Here's another block I made from the Summer Sampler Series. This is the Arkansas Traveler block. I'm making an extra of each block to keep. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with them, but it's lots of fun to try something crafty and new. 

I'm linking up with Canoe Ridge Creations, Sew Happy Geek, Polly Want a Crafter, and Keeping it Simple.

  1. I love these blocks, I'm making my way through them at the moment, I've done the mosaic one but not made a start on any of the paper pieced ones yet. I'm using Kate's Central Park prints for my blocks :o)

  2. I haven't seen a block like that before, it's really nice. Just found you from Keeping it Simple :)

  3. Your blocks are lovely! I did a few of the Summer Sampler Series and all of the Solstice Stars. So much fun! And I LOVE your blog name! Take care. Deb.

  4. You have an eye for color. Each of your blocks is stunning. I want to do a Mosaic. I did a few for a group donation quilt but would love to do some for a baby quilt also. So many great ideas, just not enough time!

  5. Your blocks are beautiful! I *love* the Arkansas Traveler block. Such pretty, spring-y colors!

  6. Followed on from your comment at AT :)

    The top one is lovely!

    1. Thanks so much! It's great fun, and the online quilting community is so nice. I appreciate you stopping by :-)
