Last summer, I started seeing all these fun blocks pop up on IG from Tula Pink's sampler QAL so, afraid I'd miss out on the fun, I jumped in. It was loads of fun seeing all the blocks pop up each day.
I borrowed my friend's Tula Pink's sampler book. Instructions have their place :)
"Figures" by Zen Chic had been sitting around waiting for the perfect project.
I see some Cotton and Steel thrown in there too.
And some Carolyn Friedlander
I loved the freshness of each block being different.
I was going to town making all these blocks but after a while, it was getting too crazy for me.
After seeing Robin Picken's version here, I decided to start going in a different direction. . . more of an "organized chaos". . . .
pulling each color outward to their own corner.
It actually went much faster at that point because I found my favorite blocks (which are usually the easier ones) and made them in 5 different colors.
Sometimes I just sewed a bunch of scraps together and called it a block :) . . . My quilt, My rules :)
I knew exactly how I wanted to quilt it. There isn't much I can draw . . .
But I can do numbers. So I drew a bunch of random numbers in random directions.
You may notice that the quilting is not continuous.
The reason why this quilt took so long (a year!), is that I buried all those beginning and end threads into the middle of the quilt. Thank goodness for the tennis open and some other championships that were going on.
There probably aren't too many 8's in there since there are 6 threads to bury on that one.
This just may be my new favorite !!!
Have you entered a quilt in Amy's quilt festival???
