It as been so much fun, following Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Sew-along!

Here’s a link to the very first post, in case you need any of the patterns:

I’m honored to have my block, Serendipity, block #656 as part of the sew-along. I love my  block in the 6″ size!

I decided to create it in some bright summer colors.  First, pull some Serendipity fabric, to audition my color choices. I love this fabric, it shades from light to medium to dark, all on one piece of fabric.  No more searching for the perfect light or dark, it’s all right here!

I know I’m going to use the golden color, but am not sure if I will add purple with it or the blue.

Hmmm, choices!

Here’s the purple with the gold.

and the blue with the gold. . . . I still can’t decide!

Well, the only thing to do is to press the fabric, cut out both colors and decide from there.

I’ve decided to use the blue and gold, just like a summer sky! I also decided to move the shading around, love this option!

Now to sew together.

First, I like to piece all the triangle units together.  I press the seams open and trim off the “ears” to make the piecing a piece of cake.

All the “units” are together.  Now to sew into rows.

I need to press my block and then I’m all done and I love it!

Thanks Quiltmaker!
