I can't decide whether this fabric is uber ooo-gly or beautiful. I certainly would wear it! But cut up for a quilt it could be nice. I paired it with the yellow in the lower right hand corner.
The block turned out nice! But do you notice anything interesting about it? Click on the picture to see it closer. Go ahead. I'll wait....
That's right! I didn't have enough of the yellow! I had to MAKE DO! I found a batik with similar coloring and used it for two of the half square triangles. I think I like this making do stuff!
And a group shot. Coming along nicely, I think. It takes me about 30 minutes to make one block: 10 minutes to select fabric, press it, cut it with my Accuquilt Studio. Then 20 minutes to sew it together.
I also spent some time today working on a Sue Spargo block - I'll show that tomorrow hopefully. Tonight I have a nice pile of handwork at the ready: Sue Spargo block and some lovely hexie making!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
