Contemporary Sampler

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It was fun designing a couple of these blocks and modifying other blocks I had seen. And I didn't waste the hexies I decided to not use on the front - they became a very small piece of back art (very small!). I quilted it using diagonal lines crisscrossing the blocks at random angles - wonky again! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go with what interests you -

Great quilt! I love your choice of colors. The turquoise fabric really makes it pop.

Thanks, Penny, the turquoise fabric was a good find - buried deep in a box of misc fabrics

ginnyt3 asked:
Very pretty. I really love the different blocks you have made. There are a couple I would like to use with your permission.
Darns answered:
Sure, why not use the blocks- I freely borrowed & adapted anything I liked from a bunch of different places
