Introducing Block 76 on the I Dropped the Button Box Quilt

Crazy quilt Block 76 Today I would like to share with readers a pattern for Block 76 which is a natural colour scheme. It is made to sit next to block 75 that has a neutral bone colour scheme.

Block 76 has much more colour in it. (click on the block to see a larger image) It fits the set of the quilt as part of the light the diagonal line that runs across the quilt. It is also an example of choosing colours that will fit the set of the quilt.

I am not a fabric snob as many of the fabrics in this block are synthetic. Over the next few weeks I will share articles about the embroidery and embellishments in closer detail but for today I will focus just on the block.

For those who are new to the site  I made  this quilt with the challenge to use 2001 unique pieces of fabric, lace, braids, charms, buttons or ribbons. Each piece is different as it is a Y2K quilt. The on going item count list below represents the items documented to date in this series of articles. I guess you could say it my way of making sure I got the count right! (I have no idea what I will do if I get to the end of this exercise and discover a miscount!)

Fabric: 8
Lace, braid and ribbon: 3
Buttons and charms: 9
Total items on this block: 20
Total tally of items on the quilt so far: 1454
