Catching up on my Civil Roosting Round Robin blocks

>> Monday, January 15, 2018

With the holiday season over, my quilt guild's first meeting of the new year is quickly approaching. Time for me to catch up on some projects that will be due!

First up, my Roosting Round Robin that I'm doing two of - this one is my civil war fabrics one.
I did an initial post on the fabrics and my first block here.

This time I had two blocks to do.

The first round after the starting block was to use triangles.
I decided to try one of the blocks in the latest Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine.

Here's the block:

This block is named, "Flying 'Round" by Marilyn Foreman of {block 1565 of Quiltmaker's 100 blocks vol.16.)

I used my blue background quilt and one of the white prints to make the spinning pinwheel stand out. I liked this block because it let me make good use of my 2 1/2" strips.

Block 2 needed to be a log cabin. Again I wanted to use my 2 1/2" strips effectively and use lots of them!

I simply started with a red 2 1/2" square and added to it with 2 1/2" strips. I stopped when it measured 12 1/2" - can't get much simpler than that!

Then I spent a little time playing with setting ideas. As a member of the planning committee I know what the next rounds will be (shhhh!) I think setting everything on point will work out nicely!

Next up, to work on the modern mystery!
