I've designed a block for Paintbrush Studio's New Block Hop (coming March 28th - 30th) and made a quilt with said block.
I'm in the process of participating in 'March Madness', also a Paintbrush Studio event. This is going to be fun...imagine March Madness with fabric as the teams! My kind of fun!
I ransacked my stash, such as it is, and feel the need to throw it all in a quilt. That I haven't done yet, but it is going to happen!
Instead I decided to use up some Feed Sack fabric. My tub runneth over and frankly...I'm not as into them as I once was.
I didn't make much of a dent, but it wasn't for lack of trying! The quilt had to be a fast finish, something I could power through without much effort and time. We all like quick finishes!
I wanted a good mix of colors, something that would all work together, and a rainbow seemed the perfect choice. I got all my squares cut and ready. For some reason I cut them at 5 1/2", when I maybe should have gone with the basic Charm size of 5". Maybe next time?!
I've always liked these little prints with white, they stand out more and it makes for a nice clean design.
I pulled out the Kona white and began the quick process of strip piecing. Really fast, really simple and in no time at all they were ready for the next step.
One good thing about wonky blocks, you don't have to have them perfect. The plan is to give a good 'wonk' to them!
While I did pick a rainbow of color, I had no intention of making a rainbow in the design. It just happened like that. You know how it goes when you don't have a concrete plan...things just happen.
I've decided I will make a tutorial on how to make the blocks/quilt. My way of giving a simple square that wonky goodness!
Do you think I should modify the pattern for charm squares? We sometimes don't know what to do with our charm squares and it's always nice to find new way to use them up!
