Joyce’s Amish Quilt
You may remember a post of mine from last year concerning stacks of blocks that were waiting to become something. I asked for you to send pictures of your block stack, and first on the list was Joyce. (You can read that post at: http://chrisquilts.net/blog/?p=6548)
She now has the blocks together, ready for layering and quilting!
With one block much bigger than the rest, and the remainder a variety of sizes, turning them on point with “float” between the blocks was a great way to put them all together! I shared this technique in a post last year (go to: http://chrisquilts.net/blog/?p=5861 to read all about it). Great job Joyce! Thanks for allowing me to post the picture of your lovely quilt top.
PS My myriad of “house” blocks from that post are still lovingly stacked in a very tall pile – still “marinating” 😉 .
Also, I recently received the On Point Newsletter from AQS, and they were introducing a fabric line called “Gelato Ombré”:
Aren’t they lovely? I have an entire lecture focusing on using Ombré, or gradation, fabrics in your quilts – with loads of examples from traditional to artsy! You can find the lecture information here: http://www.chrisquilts.net/classes/ . I would be thrilled to present it to your guild 😀 . Please email me if you’re interested.
