I’m working on a collaboration project for my group “Running with Scissors”, a quilt to donate to a charity…Safe House. In December, the call was put out for wonky striped 18 inch blocks in red and white, . The response from our group members was instant…..here are the most of the blocks auditioned on the kitchen floor:
Today, Patrice came over and we worked on our plan….cut each of these large squares into 4 smaller ones and see if we have enough. Here is the result….taaadaaaa…..
Much more interesting, wouldn’t you agree??? Patrice and I will add a few more blocks, grow it into a twin size. We’ll definitely include a few more diagonal ones….we just love surprise and movement of the diagonal squares mixed in. (My friend Kat claimed she didn’t read the directions and mistakenly made diagonally set squares…but I think it was instinct, she knew we needed these!)
Here is something Jackie made for her friend Alicia, a birthday present….using some of my screen printed fabric, stencils and paint on a canvas……
And, ain’t that the truth!
