When you are busy moving into new spaces and wondering where your glasses, matching socks and undies are in the piles waiting for a home it is tough to blog your own work. Last Friday Cath B. brought this quilt it to work out settings. We played for a while and I hope she doesn't mind me sharing the process a bit. Setting wonderful blocks is a fun process. Spend a while and try different ideas.
Background looked most promising but was competing (and loosing) with the gorgeous pieced blocks.
Ah, the stripe is promising...how about a strip quilt.
On Point! Setting blocks on point is always interesting. Simple maths and off you go. The stripe works wonderfully to activate the many colors in the scrap pieced wheels. The orginal background will make great strip borders. It is very fun watching it all come together. Lucky Cath went home and found three more blocks finished. It'll be great to see it finished one day soon.
This project, which started in the scrap pile at the Material Obsession retreat, is the kind of thing we will do in the scrap management class. If you like traveling into the unknown and exploring possibilities, this class is for you.
Another interesting thing to note her is the palette for both quilts. Are we moving into a bohemian color scheme? Lots of orange, purple, magenta, red, ochre...off the primary charts.
And ok, it's raining again. It's playing havoc with the cricket season plans and one can only hope it dries up on Saturday so we can air some quilts out back. Looking forward to seeing all of you soon. kathy
