(This is the large block found in the top two corners of the quilt.)
I may be slightly obsessed. I have been making some of the patchwork blocks now and prepping more applique blocks to put in my little travel case. I finished the block above tonight as well.
( I made all six of the these that are found throughout the quilt.)
These were fun to make and easy, I love easy! I don't mind the hard blocks, but having a simple one is kind of a relief sometimes. Know what I mean?
(I made four of these.)
These blocks were not hard, but I am seriously in need of practicing my inside points on the applique. This fabric frays a LOT and I am sure my stitches are too big, but I want that sucker to stay in place. My quilts travel with me for trunk shows and they get folded and unfolded often. They work hard and I don't want them to fall apart!
( I made two of these.)
Again, I enjoyed the quick and easy block above. The instructions were different than any I had used before, so I just made two flying geese and sewed them together. Worked like a charm!
( I made two of these.)
(And two of these.)
I think using fabrics that are a bit different for me, and that I happen to adore, is making this project even more fun. I am combining colors and patterns that I have previously never worked with. So it is a little scary but a lot of excitment. I never really know how a block is going to look and I love surprises!
(The top three rows without the large corner blocks.)
Enjoy every stitch!
I feel the same way about my blocks--totally out of my comfort zone, but I am liking how they all work together. I have completely wimped out on the applique blocks and only do the main shape on a single background--or maybe that's lazy?? Try a teensy dab of fray check on a toothpick on your inside corners--it helps!ReplyDelete
I didn’t realize you were making this quilt. I love your fabric choices for your blocks.ReplyDelete
Some of these blocks are a bit confusing to put together and I think I am going to try to figure out another way of making some of them
It is a bit of an unusual quilt, but what fun it looks like to make!ReplyDelete
