Triangle MQG is swapping blocks next month at their meeting. In April those of us swapping brought in 11 baggies with a selection of fabrics and directions on what we would like to see. I started sewing blocks last Sunday. It was fun I would reach in the bag, pick a baggie, read the request, play with the fabric and a design and then sew! No one asked for a specific pattern just design elements. I free pieced most using some Marti Mitchell templates and my rulers. I finished the last ones this morning. This afternoon I went to Mom and Dad's for ribs and corn and took pictures. I've decided the patio dad made in the back yard is perfect backdrop for photographing quilts.
Here are all 11 laid out.
This 10" block made from some Kaffe and a little white. The person wanted rectangular shapes and to use their fabrics.
This person wanted a chicken. Apparently she is obsessed. She provided the black and white fabric and background. I added the red and orange and buttons.
This is also a 10" and the person wanted rectangular shapes. (Just realized my toes are in this picture, tee hee)
This was one of my favorites! I loved the fabrics and colors! The person wanted flying geese units. I imagined a group of geese, mamas and babies, swimming through reeds on a lake.
This one took the longest. She wanted a car block or to use the car fabric, as the quilt will be for a boy toddler. Some of the pieces she included were small. I freehand pieced this.
The quilter wanted hst and to use the blue. I really liked the orange butterfly fabric.
This person also asked for geese. Some blocks were challenging to created because I didnt have enough of some colors.
This person wanted movement, a bright color added (I added the yellow), movement, and flying geese. I curve pieced the background then slashed it and added the geese segment.
This was one of my favorites! I love the Tula Pink fabric! Im going to get her to sign it June 6th when she is at Karen Gray's.
This person wanted geometric shapes. I love this David Butler fabric.
This person send lots of fabric and wanted a wonky log cabin.
So I think they all came out pretty good!
