#Vomit Linky week 1

Here we go, the week 1 linky party for the #vomit quilt.

Did you manage to get it done ok ? did anyone get more than one finished ?
I finished my block this week with time to spare.
 How do you choose your squares ? I grabbed two handfuls, put one on the left and one on the right and just sewed up the next one.

I'm now sewing a couple of pairs up when I finish any other sewing, then adding an extra one to some and sewing some others up into 4's...soon got my block done :)

I also gave up counting my squares, so weighed a few lots of 49 squares and on my scales they come to 20 grams, the whole lot weighs 520g so I've got enough for 26 blocks, I'd already made 2 and there was a few left over, so if my guesstimate works, I might even get and make the bigger one...



Some of my favourite scraps in this block, the kids love the pez fabric, I have great affection for the balloons with glitter (so wish I'd bought more of it, yeah I know, I'm weird)
  

and this cute little deer, reminds me  that we live in rural France and see these running across the road regularly
 Finished block, 3 down now

Not so difficult was it.  

If anyone has managed a block, please link up below :) until next week....

  1. I want to make at least one of these quilts; I will have to figure out how much fabric I need for the solids! I have lots of 2 1/2 inch squares cut already.

  2. I'm itching to see the end product, I bet it looks really exciting.
