Wonder Blocks

About a month or so ago I wrote in my blog about planning quilts – one that I was going to do was orphan blocks from a series “somewhere in time” combined with blocks from Terry Martin’s Wonder Blocks book.
Wow! These sure are wonder blocks. I had cut up the fabric a month or so ago, and yesterday wanted to do some simple piecing. 42 6″ blocks in about an hour and half total sewing time.

And when I put a few up on my small design “wall”, I could see how useful these blocks can be. There was no thinking, really, on how to arrange them. They looked great no matter what. I’ll have to remember these blocks whenever I have orphan blocks, or a border, or even just want to make a quick quilt.

The star block in the centre of the picture is from “Somewhere in Time”, a series I started but didn’t finish. An earlier post in my blog shows the planning for what I’ll be doing with this quilt.
