I was so excited when Carla at Creatin’ in the Sticks announced a blog hop using the blocks from her 30 Blocks in 30 Days Quilt! I was assigned the Camper Window block and, I’ll admit, I was kerflumoxed. I didn’t quite know where to start. I stared at the design a bit and then pulled out some thrift store finds I’d been excited about.
I scaled the block down so I could use my 2.5″ strips and put the leftovers back in my bins. First, I tried the block as designed.
I’ll admit it, I couldn’t get my eye to love it. So, I added a color. It was supposed to be a shadow but it was darker than I thought.
But I liked it so away I went.
And here’s the finished quilt.
I love, love, love this! The strong diagonal lines make my heart happy and the soft colors make me smile. Even better, this has to be one of the easiest blocks to piece and put together. There is minimal matching of seams but big impact!
I’d love to try this again with scrappy darks and lights. Hop over to Creatin’ in the Sticks for the tutorial. Thanks to Carla for such a fun block!
