"One of these blocks is not like the others"
|Can you find it?? And yes, I did that on purpose.|
73 x 73" square
Collaborative effort, the Always Bee Learning Bee, 2013-2014 season.
Quilt layout/sashing and back design- me. Block from: "Modern Blocks" compiled by Susanne Woods
Fabric: 100% quilting cotton bits and pieces from my Bee-mates; background Sketch in black and white, Kona cotton solids in medium gray, coal and charcoal.
Thread: (for piecing and quilting) Aurifil #2021, 2625, 2605
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton
Quilt back: Main block plus left over economy blocks that didn't make it onto the front. Bits and pieces left from the sashing.
|The blocks look different with sashing between the quadrants instead of just around the blocks.|
Binding: cut 2" straight of grain- Kumari Garden holiday edition
|Sashing detail with binding|
Quilting: FMQ on a domestic Bernina machine: random zig zag quilting in the background, avoiding all the colorful geese. FMQ scallops and fish scales in the sashing.
|Perfect! (that's 2 different quilts and one girl)….. Bliss!|
