WIP Envelope Block

Do you think they look like envelopes?


I've had the idea to piece blocks that look like envelopes after seeing this quilt on flickr.
Don't you think it would make a cute wallhanging over a desk or a table where you plop your mail?


I splurged on some charm squares from this etsy fabric designer.


I just loved the graphic designs and colors.


I think I'll just sew these six blocks up into a simple wall quilt.


As for other projects - I've got 3 of my Spinning Stars blocks made. Hope to make some more this weekend at our Modern Quilt Guild sew-in! 


Linking up today with Lee at Freshly Pieced! . . . Cindy

  7. I love the little envelopes Cindy! As soon as I saw the little picture on Freshly Pieced I thought of envelopes. And now I have a new favorite store on Etsy, she has wonderful fabric! I can't wait to sew with you on Saturday!

  8. I was thinking "envelopes!" before I rad the post so that's a definite yes! they look like envelopes! I love the color choices--the way the solid highlights and frames the prints is perfect. I'd say a wall hanging would be very cool.
    p.s. I think your pressing skills deserve a *cheer* My blocks never look that flat or straight. so jealous!!

  9. How cool would it be to do these out of Christmasy fabrics and somehow fold the envelopes so you could use it as a card holder.
