More Road Trips more Blue Work!

My husband and I have been doing a lot of car trips this summer and that means making progress on my blue work blocks.  I think I might have enough blocks by the end of the summer to finish the quilt so I'm auditioning settings!
I like this set because of the way it sets off the blocks.  The other option would be to make puss-in-the-corner blocks to go in between.  That would give more of a latise effect like single irish chain. This set is not so traditional but I really like the way it looks.   Here are the blocks I've finish recently.
I really like this one the children look so sweet.  I traced this from a children's coloring book that had a sellection of poems from Robert Louis Stevenson's  "A Children's Garden of Verses" 
These two were traced from a redwork book. 
This one is suppose to be California poppies.  It seemed an appropriate choice since I live in California.  Maybe I should do a California Quail too?  They are really fun looking birds!
I hope all is well in your neighborhoods, have a great week!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. The possibilities are endless, Claire. I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

  2. I really like your blue work blocks! I think the setting you have chosen looks good too. Are you going to use a different fabric for each block?

  3. Howdy! I'm at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone!

    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Carry on the superb work!
