A little bit different "15 minutes of play". Last night at the Quilt Alliance AFTER DARK party, here at my loft, I challenged the guests to PLAY and design blocks using only the pre-cut shapes I had available for them. Using my Accuquilt go cutter, I cut squares, HST's and parallelograms.
They had 15 minutes to work out an arrangement. I asked them to leave them on the design wall, and here they all are! How fun! Some are traditional, but most are totally fun and liberated designs.
15 Minutes.. Try something new... See where it leads you...LOOK.
Inspiration is there if you can see it!
And if you fancy high heels hurt your feet, leave them on your sewing table, because they look really good there, too.
How this quilt will end up, I'm not sure yet, but, I will share my process with you as I PLAY.
Here, I started by just putting them up on point, all smooshed together... I will stare at it, and change it, and think about my options, and also try to find the NEW element I want to add to this quilt.
I pulled them apart and took my time looking at color and lights and darks, thinking about what Filler colors I will add...And will have a blast trying all the options... I have about 40 more blocks to make.
I just love a good challenge!
I think everyone had a great time playing in the fabrics.
Now I get the best part of playing.... Putting them all together!
Now, I must make more lights and whites!
Your blocks are looking SUPER!!
