I should be doing some free motion quilting with mystery quilt along but there is not real sewing involved this week so I won’t talk about it today( actually there is something I am supposed to practice…)
Last week I started some idea for this year’s big quilt. My inspiration came from this beautiful tile design. I believe it is a creation of Chris Gryder( sorry I don’t know any more than that).I love the way colour, motifs and different texture are all mixed up. When I saw it I just wanted make a quilt like that. But how?
The first idea was appliqué to create slimier look. No that’s not original. The second ones was doing it with quilting. I wasn’t very convinced. Then I decided to mix up the patchwork blocks.
After a few days of placing blocks and colouring and replacing them, this is the final idea so far( subject to change any moment).
And this is the first row made, it’s the middle one. See I changed some colour already.
I have made nine blocks and it’s growing fast.
