* * OP * *

OK! Here's my SHOUT OUT to the participants and Pat of the OP Challenge!!!
I stressed out about this challenge, not knowing what to expect, so I bought over 7 yards of fabric for this and as soon as I saw Pat's blocks, I headed out to the quilt shop again to get different fabric!!!
Yes, I'm doin it 'lazy' style!
I plan on making the blocks for a baby quilt for a nephew that will be born in April. I think the combo will make a darling boy quilt!
I will post a picture of the finished (baby) quilt when I'm done, hopefully this weekend!!
Have a fun and creative weekend!!

What do you mean you are doing it the lazy way??

I agree...boys=orange and blue!

Love what you did with the block. I made one and it's not quite straight. This way would not have shown that! Your colors are great.

Pat said...

Oh...I love the way you did those blocks. I might have to steal that idea at some point!

Messy Karen said...

Tracey said...

Great Ideas with your blocks! I will have to go back a make a wonky one later - too cool!

MichelleB said...

Love the blocks! How did you make them so wonky?

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

I just love your wonky blocks.

Mel, I love your colors and the blocks are sooooo fun!!! I think they will make a wonderful baby boy quilt. I really think we need to break out of the "babies must be in pastels" mind set. Though I love pastels and darling baby prints, your brights are wonderful and will give the baby's eyes something to feast on. As for doing your blocks the lazy way??? I don't think your way is easier...matter of fact, it is tougher for me to make blocks that are not symetrical.

I love the different spin you put on your blocks. They will be a great quilt for a little boy.
