Stuff and nonsense

I bet you thought I had forgotten all about my Summer Moon sampler!


But life happens and takes us away from our passions, sometimes. . . . actually, quilting is excellent therapy, no? It's good for what ails ya!

I got all three Nonsense blocks done: the 5 inch, the 6.5 inch, and the 8 inch blocks are finished!

Gotta love a block that is totally half-square triangles and hourglass units!

My trusty "Bloc-Loc" ruler made short (and precise) work of these -- just look at those points! (polishing fingernails on front of shirt)

I love using all of these different fabrics in the same family of color . . .aren't these bunnies cute? Not sure how that piece of thread jumped onto the block!

If you are inspired to try the Summer Moon quilt, please use this link and hop over to the FatQuarterShop site to purchase the pattern book . . . yes, it's an affiliate link, and I will earn a teensy commission if you purchase anything on your visit. That's what keeps our merriment and mayhem going on, here at the Lilypad! So, thank you very much!!

And here's a question for you -- what's your favorite way to create a scrappy quilt? A variety of fabrics in one color family? Or all the colors in the rainbow?

Inquiring minds want to know!



  1. Your Nonsense blocks are so cute. Great colors. Yes, those bunnies are adorable. Those nosey inquiring minds... The one and only scrappy quilt I’ve made was paper pieced. Scrappy isn’t normally my thing. But if it were, I would most likely like using a variety of fabrics in one color family.

  2. I am currently in love with all the 1800's reprints that I have, and have numerous quilts in progress that have a piece of every print in my stash of that genre. VERY scrappy with lots of colors.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, QuiltGranma! I bet your scrappy quilts are amazing! I'd like to reply to you directly, but your settings are on no-reply. I'm glad you visited!

  3. I am scrappy all the rhyme or reason, maybe in the future I will think about colors
