If you aren’t in my bee you may feel a bit like this about all my quilt posts
And I’m truly sorry but I’ve been very inspired to work on this quilt recently and I couldn’t resist (despite a number of birthday projects that NEED to get done!)
The “front” of the quilt is officially done.
The blocks were done by these lovely ladies and the sashing and borders were all pieced by me. There are five different “navy blue” solids and five white on white fabrics used throughout the quilt. I’ve thought about naming this quilt “A Thousand Different Pieces” because there is A LOT of piecing in this quilt. I was very inspired by the Gees Bend Quilts and used every last scrap of fabric.
Here is the “back,” I don’t want the quilt to have a front or a back in the traditional sense. Instead I want it to be reversible with the sides evoking different feelings using the same elements.
Seeing it laid out I think I need to add some blue to separate the three predominantly white sections. I plan on adding a wide dark blue pieced border on the outside. I’m thinking about a disappearing 9 patch but I’m not sure…
I do love the middle.
I just need to balance out all that white. Unfortunately I’m going to have to put this project aside for awhile. I’m still waiting on one more quilt block and I’m out of the blue fabrics.
Stay tuned I have a couple more free tutorials coming up and my thoughts on drafting my own skirt pattern.
