Pebble Pop blocks - an update

And now there are 20 blocks!   (My design wall has seen better days.  I need to figure out how to refresh it so it does a better job!)

At the end of September, I took a virtual workshop from Daisy (@warmfolk) to make blocks for her Pebble Block quilt.  (You can read more about that class here.)  

I am really into using up my scraps and had such fun putting these blocks together using various scraps of 'whites' I had leftover from other projects along with scraps of gray and a few gray FQs too.

Each of these blocks are 9 1/2 '' square.   These 20 blocks would make a quilt 36'' x 45'' which really isn't big enough for a throw.  And, no surprise here, I still have scraps of gray leftover!

Next step is to upsize these blocks into 12 1/2'' square by surrounding them with scraps of gray of various widths so that the resulting circles are offset differently in each block.

And I just might throw in a little strip of color here and there for an extra bit of pizzazz! 

You can clearly see that I used different scraps of white / cream in making this blocks.  I'll be distributing them all around the quilt in the final layout.

Can't wait to see how this one comes out!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Oooh, I like the idea of a pop of color or two throughout. You've made great progress!

  2. I love how this quilting is coming along. I'll bet you're already thinking about how you'll quilt it.

  3. It's looking great so far. Good luck with the rest.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
