Too Much Fun

So now you can see what I have been playing with. It's a variation on the pattern Watercrystal from the Serendipity book. There are only three shapes--the triangle, diamond, and what the author calls a flat pyramid. All the individual pieces are the same size, so you can mix and match as you want. That's what makes it like a pattern block set. Most of these pieces aren't sewn together yet. I've got it set up on the design wall just to see how the colors are going to play with each other. I'm having a lot of fun with this!


We're having some much needed rain today so we're enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon here. This is the first weekend in several weeks that I haven't had guests or been on my way out of town to visit someone. I'm hoping to catch up on my bloglines feeds and see what everyone else is up to.

Just a note--I've changed my e-mail address because of the problems I've had with my previous e-mail provider. It is very tantalizing to SEE the list of mail in the in-box but not be able to READ the mail when I want to. It also had me confused with someone named Jenny Bolton and I've been getting a lot of her junk mail. It's bad enough getting junk mail addressed to me, never mind getting stuff for someone else too.

Have a great weekend!

Those shapes make some interesting combinations! Love the bright colours too.

I love playing with the pattern blocks. I play with those with my kids all the time! Fabric makes good pattern blocks too.

The kaleidoscope blocks are so different, it will be interesting to see how your quilt will be.

Oooh -- those colors and shapes are such fun! I love playing with color and placement -- I really think I am going to have to tackle one of these someday!

Looks great - I just bought some fabrics in Kansas to have my own try at some Serendipity blocks . . . stay tuned.
