Brooke invited me to post my latest project in the Around the World Quilt Blog this past week.
Brooke at Silly Mama Quilts
Like so many of us I have more projects started than I like to admit. However, this gave me an opportunity to work on something I have had in mind for some time.
My idea came from Elizabeth Hartman's book Modern Patch Work. Her pattern was Rapid City. I am not interested in doing a whole quilt as Elizabeth did, but just combining eight blocks to make a wall hanging that will end up being about 15 inches wide by 40 inches long.
There are actually only four blocks, but I repeated each twice. I did move some of the fabrics around in each repeat and used a different final frame on each. I will also use a dark grey and black fabric for a final frame between each block when I join them to make two final blocks.
This was my first block. I have used all Alison Glass's fabrics, with only Kona solids as the final frame.
One finished block and a second with just some changes to the fabric placements and a different colored frame.
This was the next block I attempted. I think I am going to like this project.
Six of the eight are now complete.
Blocks seven and eight.
The final project completed. I just have to quilt it now. I have no idea how to quilt it as of now. I will have to think on that a bit.
