Solstice Block 16

I couldn't decide which way I liked the colors placed so I did both.
It is called the Friendship Block. To me one looks like hearts and the other much like the card trick but reminds me of holding hands. Because the quilt is going to be so large, I have again chosen to do a smaller version. each of these blocks it 6" finished and will line up nicely as spacer blocks for the bigger blocks.

Solstice Block 15

I decided rather than skimping and trying to find little spots for my red that I would just buy more of this wonderful color. Now I can disperse it throughout the quilt and make it really pop. This block will balance block 2 in the quilt

I also decided with the large 32"block and two at 20.5" that the quilt is becoming bigger than I would like for a cuddle quilt so I made this in the 12" size but included the little corner triangles even if only a bit will show because I thought they added that unique touch. I will continue to analyze the block sizes and may even trim a few down to 6-10" to fit in the spaces created by the multiple sized blocks.
I love Pat Sloan's asymmetrical setting. Pat Sloan's Solstice Setting

I sure hope the child that gets this loves it as much as I love making it and using these fabrics.
I donate a lot of my quilts to the Project Linus

Block 14

All caught up.
like the touches of red so ordered more to make sure I have enough to add those touches on future block and for sashing to tie them all together at the end
