Week 15 Roundup
We are in the final stretch of this quilt along, and at this point I'm pretty obsessed with every block I see. Each one really looks exactly like the quilter who made it. (It's also possible that I can really tell since I've been looking at each person's blocks every single week!) I've had the delightful pleasure lately of talking about the quilt along with other quilting friends, and I love that others are being inspired by what the others are creating. Anyway - I'll stop talking and show you what I was loving this week! (Mostly emphasizing Block 45 - You in a Block).

(Don't worry you didn't miss it, I've skipped block 44 for now, but you'l see them next!)
You in a Block
How precious is this block by @justasimplestitch. She screen printed her toddler's handprint directly on the finished block! Here's what she has to say about it! "The rocket ships represent my husband who works on NASA contracts and is a sci-fi nerd. The red hand print is from Quincey my crazy and amazing toddler. The middle block has tiny hearts in memory of our sweet Mina Mae. Last but not least the paper airplanes are for our new baby growing in my belly. Monday we hit 20 weeks and little baby will be approximately the size of a paper airplane. All my favorite people in one block."
I really liked @laurenrengelken's block, but it's always so much fun to hear the stories behind the block and see what makes that block person to that quilter. Here's what she has to say about it! "I love pigs, frenchies, and teal. My fav foods are eggs, apples and strawberries. I’m in love with a chef and have a son named grey."
@carolinawatts has been making this quilt for her nephew, and this block was so sweet it made me tear up. Here's what she had to say: "Since I’m making this for Solomon, I first thought about making it about all things Solomon in a block, but truly I’ve been doing all of the blocks for the whole quilt thinking about things he loves, and about how to capture his personality. So then I decided instead of “you in a block” this will be “my hopes for you, in a block.” My hopes for Solomon: run wild and free, dream big, be brave, find adventures, be happy, and always know how much you are loved.
Guys, It's been so special watching these blocks happen. Every week I feel overwhelmed by the love and thought each quilter is pouring into her/his quilt. Thank you for sewing along, reading along, and supporting all the quilters working on this process. We'll see you here next week for the final 3 blocks!
