My neighborhood quilting group is presenting a challenge to each of us members to make a quilt using random measurements and techniques around a center block. I’m taking the challenge a step further and am incorporating many other blocks I got from a block exchange into the quilt. custodia iphone x ultra slim 03 My “center” block is the basket in the heart with three baskets appliqued below it. The first challenge was for a 2″ finished border with curves. See the penny shapes on the left side? That was my interpretation of curves. The next challenge is to put on a 6″ finished border with rectangles. iphone 6s plus custodia a 2 I made up a flock of flying geese and am trying various positions for them. I’ve attached the birds on the branch to the top of the basket block already. custodia ricaricabile iphone 8 plus The geese are still loose. I like this arrangement better with the geese on the right hand side. I’ve also added an appliqued star block with an embroidered tree beside it. Yes. custodia metallica iphone 7 This is how I will sew it together. I cut and sew and square up as I go. This will be the challenge border. We are not required to put borders on four sides, so this is great. I am putting only one on. In keeping with the rectangle theme, and for a little bit of balance, I’ve added the piano keys framed with black plaid to the left side of the quilt. custodia homer iphone I like it, but I’m not going to attach it yet. I may need to use it in another location. I played around a little more and added more filler blocks and more from the block exchange to get a feel for what it could become. I’m liking it! I have a few places for some filler strips and some other orphan blocks that are laying around. I want it to be king sized, so I’ll keep digging through my boxes to see what else is compatible.
Love it!!! It is going to turn out great.
Thanks! It is heaps of fun.
Pam, the quilt looks great! Thanks for showing it step by step! You sure have some great orphan blocks around!
Yes, I have the orphans. It’s amazing how many coordinate. I am always in the same color palate I guess!
