Five {+5} Things I’m Loving This Friday ~ Patchwork and Quilting Part 2

So I was all ready to go with the second part of my quilting themed FTILTF, when I realised it was the 10th today. I changed tack slightly and as well as sharing five favourite block tutorials, I’ve added quilts made using those particular blocks.

Making it 10 Things on the Tenth

A Starflower Block…..

…..made up into this wonderful rainbow star quilt.

An Hourglass Block…..

…..made up into a fabulous red and aqua colour combination.

A {Genius Method} Log Cabin Block…..

…..made into this simple, yet effective log cabin quilt.

A Half Square Triangle Block…..

…..made up into a HST quilt in lovely warm colours.

A Pinwheel Block…..

…..made up into this beautiful summery pinwheel quilt.

These are all so pretty! I think the first one and the last ones are my favorites. And my Mom made me a log cabin quilt years ago. I love it! :)

I LOVE that HST quilt!!! SOOOO pretty. You've put together a great list here, Fiona! I've made a couple of log cabin quilts using the strip method. They are really quick and easy!
