On Sunday I posted about an antique quilt block that I wanted to use as an inspiration for a new quilt.
On Monday I posted about how I drafted the pattern and showed the reproduction fabrics from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum that I plan to use.
The fabrics are available from the RMQM here.
I couldn’t wait to try one block, here is the antique and the reproduction
With all those great fabrics I wanted to mix them up within the block and go for a scrappy look. The question now is how will they look set together. I can see the layout in my head but I can’t post that so I cropped a picture of the block …
and then put several of the pictures together
There is some distortion in the picture so they don’t line up perfectly but you can get an idea of the layout I am going for.
This picture is only one block repeated over and over so the fabrics are not as random as the actual quilt will be, I have 3 more greens and 3 more double pinks to add to the mix and I think that will make it better.
Now the first block done my challenge will be to finish up a few other quilts before I plow ahead with this one!
