Recap..... The original quilt I used as inspiration was designed by my friend Jamie Mueller, visit her blog at Sunflower Seeds. Her quilt was originally named "Master Carpenter's Square" (available at Sunflower Quilts)
So, because I never play totally by the rules, I made a few changes. I love it, Jamie loves it, and that is really all that counts... but, I hope you like it also and OK, the judges too. The colored squares and background squares measure 1/2" x 1/2" and the brown squares are 1" x 1". The quilt finished at 24" x 24".
|All those little pieces became.....|
|A Quilt Top 24x24|
I added 7" corner squares for negative space.
And the fun begins... Quilting!
The idea was to keep it Modern, so some pebbles and LOTS of Ruler work.
Lines, straight and curved and crossed.
|A little checkerboard never hurts.|
|Crossed design in each 1/2" square repeated in 1" square, sort of.|
|Large (7"x7" lol) negative space filled with 1/8" lines.|
And then on to those colored squares.....
Tiny 1/2" circles in each square using my new favorite ruler by Dusty Farrell, available at Country Stitchin. Then each color's circles were filled different. BUT, I did not take a picture of the finished quilt! Since it had a deadline to be mailed, I pulled an all-nighter to get it finished. Around 6:45AM it was done. 2 hours sleep and off to UPS to ship to MQS show in Wichita. So, I now have to wait till Wednesday, April 2 to see it. If you happen to be in Wichita next week, come check out the show!
