Almost Time

 

 
I bought lots of colors of shot cottons at the big vender mall at the quilt show in Houston last October. I had a project in mind for my new class at MidAppalachian Quilters Conference.
 
 
With so many color choices available, I decided to just make blocks, enjoy the combinations and decide how they will all go together later. Pure color play! I do like the solid color blocks above better than these two tone–err, three tone squares. I want that curve to be prominent.
 
 
Notice the smaller curve, just to mix it up. Playing with the layout is fun. I think I should call this quilt, Skittles. Actually, I hate Skittles…they're not chocolate, why eat the calories?
 
 
Going up.
 
 
Going down.
 
 
Going sideways.
 
I think there is some complicated Math formula for figuring out how many combinations you can get from a collection of things… Which escapes me at the moment– hah. I am taking a cell phone photo so I can review these block settings on my ipad.
 
 
Enough playing and drifting into Math nightmares, I've committed to sewing the blocks together. Last decision is, traditional binding or knife-edge facing?
 
 
Facing it is and my last sample is finished.
 
MAQ here I come!

  1. I can’t wait to see this in person! Who needs a math formula? It’s more fun to play with the combinations anyway.
