Block 2: Greek Cross
Faith brought us our block today (Wednesday) and it's the Greek Cross. She is doing her sampler quilt in all solids and I love it! I almost waited till I could order/buy some solids to make mine like that too, but in the spirit of destashing I went with stuff I already had.
Here's Faith's. Don't you love it??

So, like Monday's block, I made two. I think I'm going to double the quilt (making two of each block) so that I'll have 24 blocks to work with. That'll give me a 4 foot x 6 foot quilt roughly if I don't add borders. I'm not sure what I'll do with this quilt yet, but I just don't care for square quilts unless they're for babies and the kids don't need a 3 foot x 4 foot lap quilt.
Again, I'm using a Make Life... layer cake with coordinating prints and solids thrown in.
Just like the first block, these were super easy and I think they would be great as a one-block quilt, where this block was repeated over and over again. I think you could do something special with the diamonds that form in between the blocks.
Block 3: Mosaic
And today's block is from Lee. I love Lee and her style. Here is her block:
And here is mine. I only made one tonight because although this block is not difficult, I still have a ton of things to do before we leave tomorrow including some dessert with my kids. I'll make the other one in the morning before we go or when we get back. I'll be 3 (or 6 in my case) blocks behind when we get back anyway, so what's adding one more, right??
Here are my five blocks altogether. The gray I used today came in the layer cake and I used it all up...There's a gray with a small pattern that may read close enough if I want to continue to use the same "solid" for each block. We'll see...
