The Magic Continues

by Nicole

I’ve been having fun working on my magic numbers blocks. I love seeing how many different combinations of squares and rectangles I can put together to make a block.The possibilities are endless!


I met my goal of making 72 blocks, which would be enough to make a nice sized throw quilt.

But I still have plenty of scraps left over.

I debated about whether to finish the quilt using the72 blocks or press on and make more blocks. What would you do?

Visions of a flannel bed quilt dance in my head so I’m going to make more blocks. Let’s see how big this quilt will get!

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday!

I like your idea to make it bigger because you can always use extra room to stretch out. πŸ™‚ I've not heard of the magic numbers blocks until reading about it here. That's such a neat formula for using up scraps. Your choice of colors are really lovely.

I am with you on making more blocks. You can always use them in the pieced back if the number works out to be a bit odd. It feels so good to use up all the fabric on a project… πŸ™‚

These blocks look amazing, I have never heard of that kind of quilt. You will have to share your finished project. I would probably go bigger.

Ooh, keep going! An AMH flannel bed quilt would be wonderful.

Can't wait to see it all and I agree bigger the better. I think some pieced on the back would be nice too!

This is lovely! Bigger could be better : )

I would make it bigger, I love big quilt, just wrap all the way up in one, like we did when I was a child, on a cold Winter night. Nothing like it.

Endless possibilities are so fun! This is going to be so pretty. I say keep going Nicole!

You're on a roll, missy! These blocks are too lovely to stop now. πŸ™‚

This is going to be a soft and beautiful quilt!

What would I do? Throw them into a big heap and roll around in them (it's getting rather cold here right now ;o) )

Such pretty tones! I'm attracted to them, and still I always work with very vivid colors!!

Hi Nicole! I can understand that it's hard to stop making those blocks! They are beautiful, fun and your colours are great! I like to have 'snuggle' pillow with the throw quilt – just one idea. x Teje

Well, if you can, a bigger quilt is the way to go for sure! Your blocks are looking really lovely, am tempted to give this a go myself! Linda
