My quilt has gone from *blah*
I love how the centerpiece imparts a kind of tribal look. This quilt is intended for a large matching donor for our recent KHOI Community Radio fund drive (who is also a composer / musician).
I've also been working with this mystery antique block. Anyone know its name? (Update: thank you CJ, it is "Album Block" or "Chimney Sweep".)
Since I have 12 of them, I thought they'd make a good centerpiece, but I changed my mind: too white, too uneventful. The other blocks I am mixing them with are so rich and storied--some person more than 50 years ago pieced together these triangles as the fabric became available, from old clothes. So I'm using the crazy blues, grays, and blacks as the centerpiece and outer border, and the uneventful light-toned mystery blocks will make an inner border. This is what I've got so far. A work in progress (and another KHOI donor thank-you quilt)!
I always say green is my favorite color, but there's nothing quite so satisfying to me as working with blue.
