Jo's Country Junction blog. If you have thought about trying this type of piecing...it is not too late to take a turn with this fun, no matching, no thinking...(well, almost no thinking) type of quilting. I have to tell you it has been nice not worrying about a seam allowance, or everything matching up and having to rip out and try again.....well, maybe there was a little ripping out but not much!
This week we were to take a look at the blocks we already had made, lay them out and get a visual of how they looked together, and see what changes in colors needed to be made.
I soon saw that most of my blocks were not only bright, but on the darker side. I showed them here last week. That really is not a bad thing, and I did seem to use LOTS of the focus fabric color which for my quilt was green and Jo said we needed to make sure we were doing that. Green in the blocks....check.
We were to make four patch and nine patch blocks. Below are my blocks I made this past week. I decided to try to keep the focus on more of the nine and four patches. (Photos click-able to make them larger to see detail better)
I also said when I started this project that I was not interested in making any of the letter blocks. Had no clue how to do that, did not have the book to explain in, so I intended on skipping that part. Well....my lesson is never say never. This quilt evolved into something I never expected.....the story will be here to read at the end of this quilt along.
Well, that is what I have done this past week. I hope to sew a bit more this weekend, I am hooked on this crumb sewing. I may need to give away all the quilt patterns I have saved as I may never touch them after this crumb along!!!
A NEW PATRIOTIC SWAP!
