Eastern Sunrise Progress

Made a few more blocks for my Eastern Sunrise Quilt.

The blocks are only 7.5" so it seems to take a while to make them even though they're simple to do. I had a stack of 12 going at the same time but I ended up messing up one block so I couldn't add another row to it at this point.

I can't decide which direction I like more... what do you think?
Maybe I should make it a square quilt so I can turn it either way?

  2. Tough call! I'm leaning towards horizontal so that it looks like the fading arcs of colour when the sun rises... But it's gorgeous, regardless.

  3. Dropping by from SbS Anything Goes. What a fabulous block this is once you see it multiplied across a quilt top. You fabric/colour choices against the white really create impact too :)

  6. It is a difficult decision. I am leaning toward the horizontal view. Aside from that it is going to be a wonderful and cheerful quilt!

  11. This pattern is so cool. I like both layout options, so I think a square quilt is a great idea! Is this pattern your own design?

  18. Wonderful blocks and I love the bright colors. If I had to pick, I really like the vertical placement better. Just something about those bright columns marching up and down that I really like.

  22. Hi there,
    I'd love to follow you, but I far prefer "via inbox following" option. Is it possible for you to hook me up that way?

    This is a stunning block and quilt. Love your colour choices!
