She worked her buns off and designed this super cool block layout with all these rules to push us out of our comfort zones.
The way I plan to push myself is to take all of the blocks designed by (or at least presented by) guild members and inverse the background and patterned fabric. I also plan to use my bundle of Honeymoon fabric from Sarah Watts, a Cotton+Steel release in 2015. I love this fabric SO much but it is a really unusual mix of colours and so it doesn't really seem to "go" with other fabrics. This will put them all together into one quilt!
A offered the additional challenge for January to make it with just two fabrics.
The January block, finishing at 16", is a pain in the butt. It is a Carpenter's Wheel (also called many other things) and it has 64 pieces, many of which are HSTs. I was cursing A, trust me.
I coloured one in to see how the inverse might look, then I made myself a legend to figure out how to reverse the pattern.
Then I started my block and had it finished in time for the January meeting of the West End Modern Quilt Guild!
Can't wait to see what the end quilt looks like!
