NYB F & Modified B Blocks

The three F&B blocks bring my finished number to 38.  Only eight left to go!  These had the F block middle and a modified B block outer rim (I doubled the number of spikes).

I really liked the dental portion of the F block (you can see in the lower left).  I'm incorporating that into a modified version another block.  I've started work on those and hope to be done by the end of the week.  Lots of little pieces!

I'm having problems as I approach the end of these blocks.  My color pallet is shrinking.  I finished off some fabrics.  Others are in pieces that are not the right shape - either too skinny or too squat to use where I want them.  With so few blocks left to go, I am loathe to start adding new fabrics to the mix.  I can't run out and buy more of the fabrics that came from my stash.  However, I did cut too many background pieces (in an effort not to get to the end and have too few).  It may be time to start cannibalizing a few of them for the colors I really want (or at least the ones I know don't look good in the background).

This quilt has been an adventure!

  1. Your sister's quilt would be a most amazing adventure, I should think! Wow, Sally.....each time I visit you to see the progress of this quilt, I am blown away!

  2. Just being a spectator at this quilt is an adventure!

  3. Your blocks look wonderful! Hope you can find enough fabrics to go on with, lovely colours! I don't have many solids or tone on tones, oh and I live in NZ, otherwise I'd courier a few over to you!

  4. Beautiful blocks, will be watching for your finished stunner!

  5. This is beautiful! I made a quilt using these blocks a long while back and I might need to make another.
