It’s back! A mystery quilt step posted on Mondays – not every Monday as last time but every other week starting on March 15th. You have a month to choose / acquire some fabric for this one. It’s not huge – it will finish at about 32 inches square without borders.
Choose your fabrics from 2 colour families that go together. If you don’t have yardage you could use scraps or fat quarters of fabrics that are the same colour or very similar.
Those of you who have been following us for a while and have long memories may remember this one from several years back, but that’s no reason not to have a go this time – new fabrics, new ideas! It’s possible we might join in too . . . in fact – here is Chris’s fabric choice for this time – note that the lights and darks have swapped places compared with ten years ago; and you can do the same if you wish.
Make a note on your calendar or in your diary :- Step 1 March 15th. See you then.
Last Tuesday we showed you part of a floor from the villa at Fishbourne and a diagram of a quilt block and possible quilt. This Tuesday over on our sister blog Meadowside Designs you can download a pattern for the block in different sizes and find lots of ideas for even more quilts and colours.
As a reminder – here’s the block, in the original black and white of the mosaic floor with some added pale grey for extra interest.
We also showed you an idea of what a quilt could look like with the blocks turned on point, but what about adding sashing between the blocks and changing the colours?
There are lots more ideas for quilts and settings in the pattern sheet many of which also incorporate the borders from the original floor.
