When Mary Elizabeth Kinch announced a quilt along on Instagram (see HERE), I signed up right away. You may remember I was lucky to attend a class last year that she taught in Duluth. This quilt is called Foothills and the goal was to follow the quirky placement of value (there's no way I
would could have replicated that second block in the top row--unless I did it by accident--lol!).
My plan was to resize the 12 inch blocks to make a smaller quilt. I started pulling fabrics and that was as far as I got when I saw this quilt HERE.
Well, I just happened to have a lot of woven scraps piling up on the cutting table and decided to try a couple blocks just for fun.
|This is about as far as I got without having to start digging into my stash.|
|I had to see how they would look with the alternate plaid blocks.|
|And maybe on point? |
It's so interesting how turning the blocks makes them look so different.
|The blocks are fun to play with...and a little hard to decide how to sew them together--|
Down the Rabbit Hole.
I could play with these all day before making a sewing decision.
|This could go on for days!|
But so much fun too!
I used the Eleanor Burns method to make my flying geese which is done in multiples of four, leaving me with two extra geese per block after the six needed for each Foothills block.
|Those extra flying geese has led to this.|
Yes, I'm even deeper into the Rabbit Hole....!
|Time to stop playing and get to work--if you see me in the Rabbit Hole, stop and say HI!|
