Then they decided to do another round, starting this week, Blockheads II. Well, of course I had to jump along. Especially since I couldn't work on my triangle gatherings ( of which I did do all 98 blocks!) and I was
I can't believe how much time I spent playing with the different colors! Since I'm at the cabin, my choice of colors was limited (very limited stash here, ahem) so I decided to go with red/blue/gold. I clearly had too much time. VBG Not only that but I pinned just about every seam, which is something I NEVER do!
This is the finished product. It's amazing how just a little change in fabric can change the look! You may not notice but I did use a few of the triangle gatherings sashings that I obviously couldn't work into my not-yet-finished quilt.
Here are a couple other iterations!
I hope you agree on the one I finally stayed with. There were others but I deleted the pictures right away... great tool being able to use my camera phone to see how one layout looks compared to another one! And then POOF! Delete!!
Back to the hourglass... I'm trying to think what use I can make with the extra 2" stripes of purple that I cut for the project. I'm sure I cut too many! Any suggestions? Rail fence? Strings? Log cabin? Of course I need to first finish the quilt, right??!!
I'm definitely going to have to move it onto the floor because the design wall isn't large enough to put all the blocks on. VBG It's coming along...
So fun to see all the secondary patterns that emerge in your hourglass quilt.ReplyDelete
I love how your hourglass blocks are coming together. Super fun!ReplyDelete
That is just so perfect!!! I love your color choices...I did a dozen blocks of the last Blockheads too...we need to encourage each other, LOL!ReplyDelete
LOVE THE LAST PIC! It's really a wonderful design! cheers, cwReplyDelete
Your hourglass blocks are amazing ! Wow ! Is it the last border ? I hope so :)))ReplyDelete
Good for you! I did do Blockheads I but not sure I will be able to fit this one in. I like all iterations, but the first one is my favorite. So, what does Mark do while you are in your cabin sewing room?? I'm guessing he is a big reader!ReplyDelete
Love your hourglass quilt! This is going to be such a pretty one.ReplyDelete
I like your final Block Head choice. I don't know if I will jump in or not. So many projects so little time! I suffer from too much "Squirrel!" behavior!
More blockhead blocks? Looks like a fun one! The hourglass quilt is coming along nicely!ReplyDelete
I think you went with a good combo for your block--looks great. I'm trying so hard not to start in on the Blockhead's blocks--too many other irons in the fire--lol!ReplyDelete
Your Hourglass piece is looking oh so wonderful. I like that you made rounds of one color. It all blends together so well.ReplyDelete
I did not do Blockheads the first go round and not planning to this time but I do enjoy seeing the color combos and fabric style that people use. And the settings for the blocks are so different in the end. I just cannot find time to stick with making the blocks.
Love your hourglass. It is really branching out on your wall. Gorgeous!! ;^)ReplyDelete
