I decided I wanted to make a bunch of the same blocks and then play with them to make a modern design. Since I could cut this particular block with my Accuquilt I decided it was a good one to choose. I picked out a variety of fabrics in reds and aquas from my Island Batik Ambassador stash.
Then I made a TON of blocks.
I started by putting all the small triangles going in the same direction.
Then it was time to PLAY! Watch the progression as I play with the pieces.
I started turning the triangles in different directions to see what happened.
I decided to make a big red ribbon to be the focal point of the quilt.
Then I started adding aquas.
Next up was a red accent line.
I made the accent line thicker to make it more pronounced. Then I started adding aqua fabrics trying to play with gradating the color.
Starting to sew all the pieces together. It's a process to make sure that none of them got moved around incorrectly. I sew one set of five wide at a time and then put them back on the design wall.
All sewn together! Stay tuned for the quilting....
I hope you get to quilt today!
