Writer's Workshop days and beyond, still good friends, to get the quilts for her baby. Here are both of Bertie's quilts:
Sunday I also joined Instagram and the 'Economy Block quilt-Along' . One of my 'modern friends', Vicky is doing it and her blocks are AMAZING--she really inspires me. Her fabric choices are awesome & I would love to have them in my stash. I think we need to fabric shop together! I followed Red Pepper Quilt's instructions & am making the blocks at 5" finished. Vicky's are larger (maybe 8"?) to accommodate some of her novelty fabrics & they look great. Her quilt will definitely go faster than mine. Here is what I have so far, and a close-up of a few. Novelty fabrics in the center, red for inside triangles & aqua fabrics for the block backgrounds. I guess I should have made one more before photographing to have an evenly filled rectangle, but oh well!!
Red Pepper Quilts. It's very colorful & fresh & she also has some great tutorials. I'm a little torn about my blocks, as I love hers which is very scrappy & colorful, but I decided to do mine with a more limited color palette. But I plan on not using any of the aqua fabrics for the outer triangle mores than once. We'll see....... I did start to add some other red fabrics (besides the solid) to make things more interesting. I figure if I change my mind & want to go multi prints/colors, there's still time to do that.
