Hop To It Blocks



I finished up March's Hop To It block (from the book by Edyta Sitar). It is so much fun making these blocks with Wendy (Inky Threads), Joan (at Leschenault) and Raewyn (lovetostitch). We only have 4 more blocks to make, and I hope that we come up with another project that we can all work on together when this one is finished.


Here are the 8 blocks we have so far.
Turning a beautiful pattern into blocks of the month is a great way to get a quilt done, and stitching with friends - even better!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

I thought about laying all mine out together, but with only 5, there isn't much to look at. Next time.

Your blocks look lovely.

I just finished up my last Hop to It in wool. A couple of other friends and I have been working on this quilt for the last year. What great fun it is to make these.

I love the colors of fabrics you are using.

Your background fabric is perfect! It gives texture without taking anything away from your stitching.
