It has been quiet over here, hasn’t it? But I’ve been working quit hard. It was time to finish all the blocks for the Forest QAL. There were 6 more to make:
Slow Coming Spring
The flower is inspired on Liverwort, a flower with blue-purple leaves. I tried to find the right colours, and the result makes me quit happy, even though there are a few little flaws made.
Isn’t he cute? I never heard of this animal, but I really like him.
The flower was inspired by a legend as Julianna, who designed this block mentioned. It is fun to read. Because my background fabric is green, I was afraid that it would become boring if I used only 1 green fabric for the leaves of the fern, that’s why I chose to make it like this.
Of course a little squirrel had to be made. Do you see the little acorn?
Again so cute. I’m not too happy about the chest, but the rock came out wonderful. Took me longer then the marten itself, because I had just a small piece of this fabric, and I wanted to use it as much as possible.
Looking at this block I thought it was the easiest of them all. Just didn’t see all the points where the parts had to meet exactly!
So here are all 12 blocks (in random order). Even though it might not look like that, they all have the same background, so I guess the differences shown now, will be gone when made into a quilt. I’m not completely sure about how to make these into a quilt, but I have an idea. It’s just so incredibly complicated, that I’m afraid it won’t work, but I’ll give it a try.
