This is just a short post, to share a design I have had in my head for a couple of months and finally managed to get it down using threadbias.com.
Design Name: Through the shattered looking-glass Inspiration/idea:I had this idea about looking through a looking-glass/magnifying glass Then what if the glass had been shattered how great would improv blocks represent the broken glass. Color choices: Blues = sky, Orange/red/yellow = flowers, greens = grass
I would love some feedback and thoughts…what do you think?
Linking up with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
For our Guild meeting next month (Triangle Modern Quilt Guild), I signed up to participate in a 18″ x 18″ pillow swap. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to try my new book purchase “Pillow Pop” out.
I decided I wanted to use blue and green as more the solid prints and mix them in with low-volume prints. I have chosen from the book to do the “Crystallized” Pattern by Angela Mitchell, it uses 100 HST (Half – Square Triangles).
I spend the evening last night in front of the TV cutting all the 3″ x 3″ squares I will need. Here’s a peek.
The stack of Fabrics I used (now I have a great scraps pile too 🙂 ) + the 100 squares:
The Green’s and the Blue’s:
The low-volume prints:
