I’ve decided to “sneak peak” what’s being sewn in the studio lately. Just one block of this new quilt as it is destined for my next book release…next year!
Yes next year!
A book full of pieced patterns (with some applique…at least at this time that is the plan). And all eclectic in nature. The only thing joining all the quilts is they were created by moi!
I am a very eclectic person. I will and want to try anything once. Even beyond quilting. So when asked by my publisher that would be the “theme” I said… eClEcTiC. There will be something for everybody. And all kinds of fabric too. Because I absolutely love them all. I say there are no ugly fabrics…just misunderstood.
So for this quilt I wanted to do a truly masculine quilt. And I say that just as a direction because honestly I am loving the look of these colors/prints.
This is a quilt block called Offset Squares. There are several other blocks in the quilt, some old and some brand new. But this is the one I chose to share. Because last night I got a huge smile from Paul when he saw the mock up on the design wall. And trust me there have been many a times he has not smiled and I take his eye for design and input to heart.
He loved it too.
As you can see I it’s got a semi-scrappy nature to it. And it is a relatively simple block…but just wait to you see it’s quilt buddies.
Ok…I am back to work sewing away the day.
