Unfortunately, when I was working on my last batch of blocks, I discovered that I should have been pressing my seams differently. If I press all the seams away from the pale yellow, it is easier to nestle the seams when joining blocks together. Why couldn't I have figured that out after making my first six blocks, instead of when I have 74 blocks done and only six blocks to go?!
I call this project my Boston Fiesta quilt. Boston because that is where I bought the fabrics back in 2005, and Fiesta because the colors make me think of Mexican food--avocado green, yellow corn tortillas, orange cheese. This is making me hungry! The block is a quarter log cabin variation. I saw a quilt made with this block at the AQS-Paducah show in 2004 and knew I would make one of my own someday.
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration!
