I loved making these blocks. They are my favorite in the series so far! I think they came out quite different from each other, which was my plan. This project is coming together in a way that is making me super happy, and exceeding my expectations. I knew I was in for a treat, as any Monique pattern is fun to make, and just challenging enough to be interesting. Her tools make every block come out super accurate as well, which is such a joy when piecing a top.
These block patterns are all so lovely, the fabrics I chose are pleasing me so much, and I am really jazzed about my plan to do an alternate block and a diagonal setting. My fabrics are a collection called Audra's Iris Garden by Jan Patek for Moda. Beautiful springy greens, yellows, reds, purples and browns with an iris print that is so different and gorgeous. I have used two of the larger iris prints in the blocks shown above.
This layout gives you an idea of my plan for the alternate block and diagonal set. I think my quilt will have such an airy and springy feel to it with this variation.
Here are my ten blocks all together on the design wall:
