And Another WIP

One baby quilt finished on Saturday (post about that one coming soon) and I am already well into the next one. I know you all warned me about this quilting thing being addictive, but gee whiz this is getting ridiculous. Granted I am the one setting the agenda of designing and making at least two quilts a month, but I do have a whole lot of learning to do and want to do it right quick (If I haven’t mentioned it already I am not the best at patience either).

Anyway, this one is a bit folksier than I would expect from me, but it isn’t like I am particularly wedded to any style or anything. Though I really do love what happens when you just rotate the same block 90 degrees each time you use it; such wonderful meta-patterns emerge. (Yay meta!!!) So while last week’s quilt is going to head off to England as soon as I get happy, yummy pictures of it, this oversized baby quilt will be heading down to NYC as soon as I get through it.

Now on to quilting this one and then off I’ll go to work on the next one. Just as a hint for that one: think braille.

    It’s sweet.

    I love that you are challenging yourself with different techniques already. And that you’re designing from concept like you are. Then again, you are a designer.

      Thanks. I wanted to do one that was less aggressively modern. Still has some hints of my vibe to it; I think I am in love with rotating the same block in different ways to create odd meta-patterns. Next couple will be much more modern, whatever modern means, and then I have one percolating that will really be a push and a bit extra funky…

    I love those conversation prints in quilts for kiddos–so many things for them to browse. You know, of course, that high contrast is great for increasing IQ’s. 🙂

      Was totally inspired to play with these by the quilt you made for Little One. This time want to keep to just a few prints and play with the shapes the blocks would make when I played with them. The next one I am making will be using about 20 different prints of this ilk to just be a shmorgasbord of fun for some wee one…

      Then the next one gets all stark and modern again…
