Indigo blocks

Hey there, everyone, I realize I've been a bit sporadic with posts as of late.  Sorry about that -- the school year is nearing the end (last week!!!) and so there's been a ramp up in activities for school and the family.  I haven't had much time for sewing, but I spent a few hours playing on Sunday around with some of the blue & white fabrics I've been collecting.


The block patterns are from the book "Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix & Match" by Susan Briscoe.  I used a mix of Curious Nature (Parsons Gray) and an Alexander Henry print on an indigo Quilters' Linen by Kaufman.  The colors in person are so much more vibrant than what I was able to capture with my cellphone.


I'm not sure where I'm going with these ... perhaps a mini-quilt with some more swirl applique blocks and a few more pieced blocks?  What do you think?



Maybe a few blocks like the one pictured above ....

These are so pretty, Claudia! I actually have that book and was thinking about doing another sampler based on it...now that the FW is done.
