I was digging through my scrap bags the other day, and decided to play with a new block...
All these little seams were a nightmare, but each section got a bit easier, It's far from perfect, but I am happy that I gave it a go, and know that, now that I conquered ONE block, the others may be easier...
I sewn off two points in the middle... Maybe the next one I can get them right... We'll see!
It's quite fun don't you think?
I tried very hard to NOT think about what fabrics were going where... Sometimes I look at old quilts, and wonder why on earth they picked the colors they did... How is it that they seam to have not thought about color placement or subconsciously put like colors with like colors... Those are the quirky quilts I am always drawn too. So, this was my experiment focusing on not focusing! ;-)
This is my design wall this week...We have our MOD guild meeting Saturday, the lower right hand corner are blocks from this meetings challenge. We're using Cherrywood fabrics, and a layout of light to dark on the diagonal.. I can't wait to see the rest of the blocks and play with them to see what they will do with each other...
I'm liking that star block on point... maybe I can make something fun out of that one block less than perfect block after all!
Ready to sew another bobbin of HST's... pieces are cut and laying here ready to go.. this quilt is growing faster then I thought it would... my little ENOUGH quilt, (a modern8create challenge) seems out of place here... Can never have ENOUGH HST's. ;-)
What is on your wall today?
What do you do with a block that is less then perfect? Use it anyway?
Throw it into the scrap bin? Orphan block pile?
