Yonder Quilt Along: Row 9 & 10

I knew it was going to happen eventually; even with the casual pace of a new row every two weeks I was bound to fall behind. Row 9, another row of Arch blocks, was it. Ah well. That’s why we like to keep it casual.

I used a green with touches of pink from Tula’s Pinkerville line. And after everyone keeps mentioning how much the Arch blocks look like cheeky little bikini bottoms, it’s all I can see and I love it. What color are your bikini bottoms?

Since we’ve done Arch blocks back in Row 5, there’s not too much different this time around. Click here for an Arch block refresher.

Row 10 (we’re in double digits!) is half-square triangle row and the only row like it in Yonder. I used a fat quarter of the jellies from Zuma and had this much left over.

Not a lot left. But if you’re careful, a fat quarter works perfectly. The half-square triangles are a little bit bigger so you can see a fair amount of the jelly print.

I set the half-square triangles up to pinwheel across the row (which is how the pattern is written), but you could mix it up and have them go all one direction for a different look, but I think the greens are going well!

My ROYGBIV Yonder is too big for me to fit in a picture, so I had to get artsy. I will admit, it’s really hard for me to use only one fabric per row. Most of what I do is so scrappy, and yes this could still qualify as scrappy since each row is different with no repeats, but it’s very different from what I usually do. It’s good to stretch the brain every now and again.
