Some progress on the “small sketches” quilt. The original concept for the sketch series was to concentrate on 3 design elements -improv, log cabins and warm colours. I have stayed mainly within those parameters and added a touch of accent colour here and there.
This is the latest sketch – this will probably be the only blue tone in the finished quilt.
This finished block adds a touch of pinkish/mauve.
The latest one really adds some bright tones and a deep red, plus a slash of green in the outer neutral border.
With a bit of luck I hope to finish all the blocks on the week-end. I still don’t have a good idea of how it will flow when the 25 blocks are joined together – finished size will be a 5×5 of 12″ blocks – 60″ square quilt.
I can see now that many of them have a floral element while several have only abstract geometric shapes. I’m not sure how that will flow overall, so I may take those out and make a few more with flowers and end up with a 4th, but originally unplanned, design element. I’m also keen to add a couple with a mustard yellow tone. After a long and frustrating week at work, playing with colour is such fun! Hope you have some fun this week-end.
