Lavender Blue, dilly dilly, Lavender Green

An hour a day quilt designed by Judy of Sunshine Quilts. When I took my fabric requirements to my LQS for fabric the comment was made (as always) “what a wonderful design” “Oh yes,” I replied, “Judy always designs the most wonderful quilts.” At this point I also add how easy her instructions are to follow and that they always come out great.

I selected the fabric and took it home to wash. As I looked at it across the room, I realized that it needed something else. I went back yesterday for a few fat quarters and after washing everything last night, I began my nine patch blocks. Here is a sample of all of them. They might not all make the final cut. I might have to try a few more but any blocks not used will go into my BOB for later use. I also have a piece for the back with fairies on it. Goes with the quilt perfectly. I got all they had left (on sale of course) but if it is not enough I was thinking of adding a border of the left over nine patch blocks. As I was pressing my blocks, the name of this quilt came to me. I think it is perfect………….

Anyway, I am on schedule so far with making my nine patch units and I only have 18 more siggy blocks to stitch. This weekend will find me making the final touches on the siggies so that they can be mailed on Monday……………..


  1. You selected such great colors.

  2. Your colours look great - they are so calm and soothing! I will love to see the progress on this quilt! Yet another one of Judy's patterns I will have to put on my "to-do" list... Take care :o)

    By the way: What is a BOB?

  3. Would you share where I can find one of Judy's patterns?

  4. What lovely colours you have chosen for your new quilt Suze.
    I have also admired your Lori Smith block.
