I taught the quilt block workshop I call Psychedelic Baby while in Georgia. I’ve been loving the process of making quilts with this block method. It creates two types of blocks simultaneously and there are numerous variations to play with. These samples are the most simplistic.
I was already lugging nearly a hundred pounds of quilts with me so I took one of the samples unquilted.
I’m hoping for rain today so I’ll stick to a day of quilting and my new plants get a drink before our week of mid-70s.
The layout for this one developed rather improvisationally and more than once I had to pull a seam apart to get blocks where I wanted them.
Over the weekend I made a back and did the basting in the sunshine of my front window.
I wasn’t very excited about such a neutral palette. I love the scraps of course, but the color worked better than I ever imagined. I did cheat from the grey and white to add the yellow, but that’s baby neutral right? And that metallic fabric is so sparkly good.
Once they are both finished and gifted I’ll share a little more about their development, but I thought I’d just pop up some process photos for the day.
I also have some brick painting in my future now that I’ve finally got the Christmas lights down:)
Happy week peeps.
