Last month, I decided to start working on my Park Bench Quilt (Jaybird Quilts). I had purchased the kit from Craftsy and I made the goal to sew one or two blocks a month. I thought I would share my progress.
The pattern contains the templates to make the quilt but cutting is so much easier if you use Jaybird Quilts' Sidekick and Hex and More rulers. I was lucky that a good friend had both and loaned them to me to make this quilt.
I started by cutting up the fabrics for the first block. It is the Picnic block and you end up making two.
A very pretty green one. (Sorry, this lavender wall is not the best background.)
And a happy one all framed in yellow.
I love these blocks so much, I wanted to display them someplace so I could enjoy them. I decided to make some garland with them and hang them around my sewing room.
So tonight I pulled the fabric from my kit to get started on the next block. More greens and grays to be made into two Ball Game blocks. Not sure when I will get to them but you can bet I will be showing them off once I get them finished!
