What's on Your Worktable Friday???? Summer Fun...

Snowball, quarter square triangle and fan blade blocks.

Fan blade, nine patch, nine patch in a square blocks.

Happy Friday and weekend to everyone!!

More blocks have been sewn together for my sampler quilt I'm working on in the online class I'm taking, Amanda Jean Nyberg's Craftsy Class, Colorful Scrap Quilting.
Sashing will separate the rows of different blocks. 
I ordered fun fabric for the sashing and back, from the Tiger Lily collection by Windham fabrics, from Connecting . Hint, there are butterflies involved.
That's what's on my worktable. What about yours?

Kids are having a blast splashing at the pool.
Teens are enjoying their pool parties.
The wild California quail at the local pond have reproduced and can be seen taking dust baths in the evening with their latest brood.
Ahh, summer time at its best.



  1. Very nice blocks! They are so cheery. I'm cutting fabric for a new hexagon project today.

  2. Thanks, Pamela. I love your hexagon projects, I'm looking forward to seeing the process!

  3. Won't the snowballs melt when the hot fan blades let out their blasts of hot air!? It's alovely collection of blocks and you will put them together in such a way that they enhance each other.

  4. This is shaping up to be another fun quilt Janie. As always I am enthralled by your colour choices!

    1. Thanks, Mary Ann. I'm working on it slow but sure. Lot's of work obligations last week.

  5. Good looking blocks! You use a lot of orange and always make me think I should buy some (it's a bit of a stash gap). It always works so well.

    1. Thank you, Kaja, yes orange is a natural compliment to green and blue, brings out their best.
