For the Love of Solids ~ A Work in Progress

FTLOS Blocks

I’ve started work on my first item for the For the Love of Solids Flickr swap. After spending some time studying my secret partner’s inspiration mosaic, I decided to embrace the improvisational, liberated sewing technique. I made these blocks using just my rotary cutter and no ruler. This photo shows the blues more accurately:

Part of the swap involves posting work in progress photos and getting feedback from your partner (without them knowing it’s their project). I’m now trying to decide on whether or not my partner would like blocks pieced directly together or maybe off centered in some sashing… We shall see!

Summer Sampler Series : Halfway There!

Summer Sampler Series Halfway There

We are now halfway through the tutorials for the Summer Sampler Series. I just wanted to share the blocks, all together, so far. I am loving this! I hope those participating are enjoying learning some new skills. I know I am.

And for those that aren’t quilting along, I hope you are enjoying seeing the blocks. I’ve had a few people ask if the tutorials will be around for awhile. Be assured, if you ever want to make one, two, or all of these quilt blocks, the tutorial links will be up on my blog indefinitely.
