I have renamed the quilt Mosaic Madness because I'm going to start playing with the overall colors and shapes within the blocks as well as different stitch embellishments between the separate scraps of fabric. Since I used all the jelly roll pieces on this quilt and the yet-to-be-published-here Wonky Fans quilt (first set of borders on yesterday and then the flange/prairie points after quilting), I am left with just a few scraps and won't have enough to complete the "framing" on each of the blocks, so I'm going to have to play with those also (oh darn).
Here's a close up of a few of the blocks:
Recognize any of these fabrics?
Meanwhile, I'm working on a HUGE Dresden from some 1930's fabric Andrew gifted me with at Christmas (my family knows me so well). I wanted to make the blades large and started with 8" on my Easy Dresden Template. Needless to say, I'm cutting the background blocks at 20" square to fit the monster on. BUT, the four blocks I have completed look amazing!
And on the administrative side of things; I have just inserted my Scrap Squad badge on my blog so now I look more official. I'm loving my fellow scrapers and they all seem so much fun! It's too bad we don't live closer together so we could meet fact to face and share our quilt building stories in person.
Back to the studio!
