Checkerboard Blocks

These blocks are part of my latest project and I like them a lot! Sunday was a day of mixed weather – thunderstorms and sunshine – so I decided to take advantage and spend the day in my sewing room.

I have had a jelly roll of Persimmon by Basic Grey for a while now but didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. Lately I’ve been sketching some ideas, and Sunday was the perfect time to try them out.

I really like this line of fabric. So much so that I’m going to have to try to track down some yardage for hoarding purposes. You know how sometimes when you see something you just feel it in your gut that you’re going to love it? That’s the way I felt about these prints and my gut was right – I do love them!

Here are a few more blocks ready for assembly. I’m not sure yet what the finished quilt will look like; I’ve got some ideas for different blocks to add. Whatever it ends up being, I just know in my gut that it’s going to be one of my favorites. 🙂

That’s what I’m crushing on for Main Crush Monday. How about you? I would love to see what you are working on and what has you excited to be in your sewing space this week. You can link up any Instagram pic or blog post – here’s how:
