Back in August I did quite a bit off online shopping while I was at the hospital with my dad and recently while cleaning my quilt studio I pulled some of them out and decided to start working with them.
You get a strip of each of the Boundless Blenders, can you see how the colors change? This would also make great fabric for applique work and you can buy fat quarter bundles or strips.
It took no time at all to cut all of my fabric up for the blocks. The colors in this collection are subtle and elegant.
I really like the look of the blocks.
I made up about a dozen of the blocks before I had to put the project away and work on something else. I put everything in a bin in my IKEA storage shelves so they will be easy to find when I want a quick project to work on.
Here is what the Color Block quilt will look like when it is finished.
Remember when I said I was cleaning up my quilt studio? Whenever I do that I pull out some of my old UFOs and then try to make a decision on whether to continue holding on to them or get rid of them. Well, one of the projects I have was this X Marks the Spot quilt. I think I started it years ago as all of the fabrics are oldies from my stash.
I took a little break from cleaning and made about 10 more of the blocks before I put everything back into the box. I usually have a note pinned to my UFOs so I know what size blocks I was making, do you do this too?
Then guess what happened? I found a box of batiks and decided to make the same pattern but in a bigger size……I’ll share that with you soon.

Neither block is the same size as the Color Block kit, this block can be made in many different sizes and I’ll do a tutorial on it soon. I should have put one of the Color Block blocks on my design wall too, it is a little bigger than my scrappy block and smaller than the batik one.
I also found this kit but I can not remember what the pattern was, I even bought the backing, I’ll have to go through my patterns on Craftsy and see if I can find it. Tell me I’m not the only one that does something like that!
My neighbor recently bought a kit from Craftsy and they are now including the pattern with your fabrics so you don’t have to find it and print it out.
The Ombre fabrics are beautiful and here is a kit called Color My World that you might also like. It is on sale and may already be sold out.
