I've been playing with my Patchwork Math book, and designed a new block. It's new to me anyway. Has anyone seen a block like this before? After awhile they all start looking alike. It is my goal to design new, yet timeless blocks.
The gorgeous fabrics are called Past Endearments by Judie Rothermel, and were supplied to me by Marcus Fabrics. You can see the whole line HERE. I think it's time for a blue block next!
Here's a breakdown of the components in the block. It began with a square in a square in the center. Now this block looks like it contains many triangles......but it doesn't. The only triangles are in the square in a square.
I LOVE intricate blocks. To me, intricate = interesting. I also get more chances to add in additional color.
The square in a triangle measure 2 inches unfinished. Pretty tiny, but adorable since they finish at 1-1/2" when sewn into the block!
You might be wondering what I'm up to....another quilt maybe? Well, I'm adding possibilities to my Patchwork Math class. I'm also working on additional segments for The Quilt Show.com I begin filming five segments in July. This could be the beginning of a sampler quilt.
Thelma & Louise, (Gail & Lynn) hit the road again next week. We will be traveling to the Valley Quilt Guild in Marysville, CA. I really enjoy the guild lectures and workshops since I get the opportunity to spend more time visiting with quilters.
Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Safe travels.
