It’s Week 5 of PATCHWORK & POODLES Inkling Quilt Along! We are so excited about this quilt along, which features Beauty and the Beast fabric designed by Jill Howarth.
This week we are making the third row of blocks for our Inkling quilt! Here are my blocks. I am using fabric from the Beauty and the Beast collection, designed by Jill Howarth. Below are my blocks for row 3.
Notice the sweet details of Jill’s artistry — the windows, tiny books, flowers…and Belle. Just beautiful!
Don’t you just love this golden mustard color? The contrast of the pink and mustard is perfection!
I’ve mentioned it before, but the tiny village print is my favorite. The itty bitty details in this print make it absolutely charming.
I used Cream Texture, by Sandy Gervais for the background. You can see the nice, subtle texture it adds in this photo.
And that’s the third row! Take your time this week to enjoy the process — match your seams, press often, and don’t be afraid to unpick and correct any mistakes that crop up. Once you complete your blocks, lay them out and appreciate your work.
Take a look at Eliane’s blocks. She incorporated Christopher Thompson’s Blossom Basics into her quilt design. The Blossom print gives the eye a place to rest and adds a fun pop of color at the same time.
