Quilt-Uberfest Block #7 — In the Corner Pocket
I hope you have been enjoying Quilt-Uberfest. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous if I could pull this off. But I have had the delight of working with about half of these wonderful people before, so I was hopeful. And my new friends have been terrific as well! In fact I was the one scrambling at the last minute to present my block to you today.
Before I show you my block and the link to the PDF to create it, I wanted to briefly talk about the line I chose for this quilt-along. I really loved how this line spoke to the misty surreal effect of fall ….the crisp morning…the foggy evenings….the hints of the summer’s glorious colors and fading to the quiet sleep of winter….
and for someone who really normally doesn’t like purple, the chocolate edge that is infused into this line also drew me in. I like two types of purple….this brownish type and the greyish type that has been called Perkin’s purple I believe. This one’s got the chocolate all over it……getting hungry yet?
Here is one of the Nel Whatmore’s paintings that inspired her line Sleeping Beauty. You can read all about it here.
And finally I bring you today’s block for the Uberfest! In the Corner Pocket !
Actually two different versions of it!
Click here for the PDF.
Make sure you check out tomorrow’s Uberfest Block with April. I met April at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, and I tell you there are few people out there as sweet and charming as she is…..oh, and did I mention talented to boot? Well, she is, and she’s got a great block for Uberfest…. And while you are there, she’s got some other cool fall stuff going on as well. I was just over there and saw what looked like a delish pumpkin cake!
And don’t forget tomorrow we also get to check out Modern Mix by Jessica Levitt! See you then!

Thanks for a wonderful block pattern! Would make a wonderful quilt in its own..
Oh stop, I’m blushing. 🙂 Thanks Scott, your block is awesome, and you’re pretty great yourself. xoxo
Thanks Scott I like both blocks I may use both.
The block is really neat! A quilt made out of those would be pretty!
thanks for the block Scott – and for organising this quilt fest – I’ve just realised though that in my excitement to get the blocks done I hadn’t left comments – so I’ve done that now 🙂
Hi Scott. I’m having troubles with the pdf download of your block – receiving message that the file is damaged – and I’ve tried over the last few days. All other blocks are downloading OK so don’t understand my problem. I’m using the latest Acrobat version X. Know you are very busy yet would you send me an email with the pdf attached? You may use the email in my comment. Thanks, Marcia
Weird, well, I sent you an email with it attached. Please let me know when you receive it…
Hey… LOVE the block . You are one great designer . Cannot make up my mind if I shuld make one block or a whle quilt . Only problem is I cannot get the darn thing to download . I have downloaded all the rest of the blocks . I know you are super busy and I am only one of many but could you please send me an e mail with the directions . I would be most grateful. I enclosed my e mail have a great day .. God Bless… Carol
Hey Carol, I sent you my PDF …hope you get it …let me know
Cool! You know this block looks like a subset of a much larger block – I’m rather intrigued by the idea of making four blocks of this in the same pattern, and putting it together to form a ‘superblock’ of sorts!
Thank you for the pattern!
I enjoyed looking at what you’ve done,Virginia
Scott, I just discovered the Quilt-Uber-Fest 2011. How exciting! I subscribed to blue nickel studio emails…can’t wait to see what else there is! The block #9 is no longer available, as that website was closed down last year. Any chance it’s available elsewhere? I’d really appreciate it. Thanks so much. Can’t wait to get started sewing! -Brenda
