Inside Addition Block for Sue

For February we are making 12 1/2″ Inside Addition blocks for Sue at Seven Oaks Street Quilts.

The block went together quickly.  Using the Blocloc HST ruler certainly helped with trimming the HST units.

Sue asked us us share a little about where we live and since I live near GREENville, South Carolina, I decided to make a green monochromatic block for Sue.  I used a Kona Cotton solid for the plus sign, a Denyse Schmidt for the coordinating green and a Bonnie and Camille low volume print for the background.

Here’s a map showing Greenville, South Carolina is located in the southeastern US.

This is the Liberty Bridge which spans the Reedy River in downtown Greenville and was taken after a big rain.

This is the historic Huguenot Mill built in 1882 and is one of Greenville’s olded structures.  I took this picture after a summer rain and loved the reflection in the water.

I met some friends down at the water’s edge, but didn’t have any snacks to share with them.

I mailed my block last week and hope it makes it to Sue in Austrailia safely.  I’ll leave your with what’s blooming right now in my yard, some pretty daffodils.

  1. What an interesting town! Love your photographs. That bridge would definitely be a place I would visit often. Your block is wonderful. I almost did mine in green but purple won out.

  2. Daffodils are my favorite! I wish they were blooming here already like they did last year, but this year is still too cold. So, thanks for that photo especially!
    I love your block. Very pretty!

  3. I Love your block, Paige. That low volume fabric is gorgeous! Your town looks lovely. I did a double take when I saw the map but realised that I’d become totally confused and mixed Colorado with Carolina. I definitely need some geography lessons!

  4. Good post. I study one thing tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’s going to at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and apply a bit of something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
