Pennsylvania Blocks

 I had found this block on the free website, Quilter's Cache.
Was looking around for a 12 inch block using 2.5 inch strips.
Well turns out Terry has set up a SEW ALONG for a top using this block too!

I am using some Jo Morton fabrics with my blocks.  Colors are blacks and dark reds. Adding some gold/cheddar with sashing(if I do) and binding. I plan for this quilt to be on  our bed.
It is a full size antique oak bed.

Not sure if will do sashing or no but the above pic and this one are the candidates.
This one also has a bitty red bud on it.

Using these two blocks, alternating.
Bought these wonderful fabrics at AC Moore in Newport News. Good deal!

This is the center square focus fabric for my blocks.
I have cut out enough for 12 blocks. Hope to get them sewn up so I can decide how I wish to proceed with the top.

Had to add a baby pic! Sweet baby taking a nap on stool cushion!


  1. Your blocks look great! They're so much different from the other ways I've seen them done! :0)

  2. Again--not sure which is prettier--the kitten asleep or those wonderful blocks?????
    I have been in the sewing room 2 morning in a row not--just sewing bindings on some small quilts--
    but it is a start!!!!
    hugs, di and miss gracie

  3. OMG--is that not the cutest!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How could that sweet little pile of gray cause so much trouble??? I do have colors picked out really I do to play along with you. And you will like them. They may even shock you!!!

  4. I love your taste in fabrics...

  5. Very nice fabric choices...will be fun to watch Terry's Sew Along and see your blocks too!

  6. Wow Lola! Those fabrics are so beautiful! I love the colors, so rich. And of course Wiggles fits right in!

  7. Those fabrics are just gorgeous. Awww...look at that cute baby.

  8. I've made a few blocks from Quilters Cache. These are lovely in the reproduction fabrics. Cute puddy tat.

  9. Sweet kitty cat...I'm smitten! Great fabrics and you said AC Moore...I had no idea they carried the good stuff! I'll have to check it out next time I see a store. The one in Greensboro closed.

  10. Squee.... that kitty is a-dorable!!!! I love Quilter's Cache! I use it a visual prompt when I'm stuck.

    Loving the reds. Happy reds!

  11. Gorgeous fabrics... almost be tempted to join in the quiltalong with fabrics like that! But I am NOT... I WILL finish other things first... really I will!!! Love the baby :) xxx
