HJQ Quilt Block One - Air Castle

Air Castle Quilt Block

The first block called "Air Castle" easily came together. Once arranged into the quilt top, the finished blocks will be six inches each, which is a small size for me. I've opted to press the seams open to lessen the bulk on the smaller size. This will be my first quilt top using this method. It lends more challenge to keep things on point, but that's what this project is about.

I've selected Moda's All Hallow's Eve fabric by Fig Tree & Co. to do the HJ sampler in. I'm loving the orange paired with the darker fabric. It really pops against the ivory "Ghost Hounds tooth" background from the collection.

After making the first block, I'm contemplating redoing the block, using Kona "Bone" for the background fabric in place of the Ghost Houndstooth for the overall quilt. Decisions, decisions! In any case, I foresee the need of aquiring much more fabric in the near future very soon! This is going to be so much fun!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!
