Inside Addition

 Inside Addition for Love Circle

With January running along and about to run away, this weekend I made bee blocks for the Love circle of do. Good Stitches.  Our lead quilter this month, the fabulous Ara Jane, had the clever idea of giving us Inside Addition blocks.  These 8" cuties are designed by Jessica of A Little Gray who's sparked a quilt-along on Instagram! 

Joining in on the #insideadditionquiltalong! This will be the #dgslovecircle January quilt.

Ara Jane gave us color guidance and away we went!  You can see that it's a pretty simple block.  Jessica's notes above are cutting sizes and here's how it sews up:

Half square triangles, 3 rows and done.  I like the small size and the way these blocks look so good with just two fabrics in play.

I got to use up some Doe Wide backing scraps (that large graph-papery print)!  Oh, and check out how the Cotton & Steel Dottie ended up lining up all fancy like.  Sometimes fabric is nice to you.

Next up this week is clams, clams, CLAMS!  I'll be back tomorrow with a survey of techniques, then we'll have a clammy fabric giveaway and a post on Friday that overviews my quilt-as-you-go method.  As you can see, I haven't been able to resist a little cutting...

Hello clamshells.
