Habitat Blocks

Why am I so bad at math?!  I’m really not – I took calculus in high school and statistics in college, but yet, I always screw up my calculations while sewing.  These blocks were a disaster of math screw-ups.   Tack on another border, tack on another border, tack on another border… iy yi yi!   Truly unprecedented stupidity on my part… but at least the stakes weren’t too high.

Anyway, here are my blocks for the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild’s charity quilt made out of Jay McCarroll’s Habitat fabric (previously posted about HERE) donated to our group by Free Spirit Fabrics.


I like the fabrics I selected from the line and I could see a cool quilt (maybe just a simple patchwork) our of these swatches…

  1. Quilt math is crazy! It seems like I’m always adding an extra 1/4″ or being short a 1/4″!

    Anyway, your blocks look great and I love the idea of a quilt in those colors/fabrics. You chose great fat quarters to put into a quilt with the scale and floral vs geometric.

    I think I saw the fabric but not the finished blocks. They look great! The patterns on the fabric are so lively; I love it.
