Pat Sloan's OP Challenge Retreat Finished Blocks

Okay here are promised pics. I say this not knowing if Blogger and my pc are going to cooperate. They sure would not yesterday late!!!
I did 12 blocks, just enough. No way could I get more from the Buggy Barn fabs, my inspiration ones. Mixed in some Thimbleberries and Mumm too.

I do have some other fabs,( light ,med, dark) I could make some borders with to make a bigger top but not sure if I want to do that yet. I then would have to send it out to be quilted. I do have more of the 'cross' fab to put on sides then use the dark green and eggplant(purple) as outer borders..hummm just thinking...;-)
I know I like the blocks as is no sashing or adding different fab blocks into the mix.
So if they become 4 runners will be sewn as is with simple borders.
Cha Ching gifts in the gift closet!!!

I am really pleased with how they came out.
Someone else has said they remind them of hugs and kisses, yes they sort of do.
So who knows may have to have a couple more wild ripping, cutting, sewing, pressing days to make some for some special wee ones!!
If you did not join in the OP Challenge Retreat this weekend you can still get the info and pattern on Pat Sloan’s Blog, begin on Friday the 20 th.
Speaking of Wee on to my next projects making some Mountain Baby Blankets. Orange is a warm color!!
Please click on the button at top right of my side bar for details.
I plan to make mine simple and warm.
Not like we have to impress the world with our sewing skills to wrap a precious wee one in warmth.
Just some fabric, some thread and a good heart will work just fine…please check it out.
