Girls at Play

Just a quick note on this rainy (again) Friday morning. I started a new quilt using my newly acquired stash of Children at Play fabric.

A few weeks ago I spotted this quilt on 'crazy mum quilts' using the traditional Rolling Stone block. I was really inspired by the square block giving a sense of circular movement and resolved to use this block in one of my next quilts.
Fast forward a couple of weeks and here are already the first blocks of a new quilt adventure. I figured that this block also shows of singular fussy cut elements really well and in particular if you surround them with vavawoom colours.

I like how this is coming along. My plan is to make a Girls and Boys version of the quilt.






P.S. I will post an update on 'Siblings Together' tomorrow.
