Jonah is one of the cover blocks from the newest Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks (A Whale of a Block by Debbie Taylor) sized up to 36" square. The fabrics for the half square triangles came from solid sheets. The whale and binding are estate sale scraps, and I'm not sure where the backing fabric, a blue print with lighthouses, came from. Mom gave me some of it, I think, but this print has turned up in a lot of different scrap bags over the years.
I've been collecting these magazines ever since they started putting them out because some of the blocks are just so cute I can't resist. I think this is the first time I've actually used one! After flipping through the issue, I can see a lot more blocks that I want to incorporate into the baby quilts.
