I took a look through the archive and pulled out a couple of my favourites from the whole 100. It was hard to choose. Check it out:
|This is one of my favourite blocks from the challenge. I really love Alison Glass focal prints and this mustard yellow is so rich I can almost taste it.|
|Each block isn't a lot of intense work in and of itself but if you choose the right fabrics, there's so much going on in each.|
|I really like how I was able to mix collections together - both new and old - it makes the quilt a time line of my collection.|
|There are some pieces in some of the blocks (like this one) that represent the last tiny scraps I have of a particular fabric in a specific colour way.|
I'm not gonna lie, when the challenge was over and I looked at the collection of BRIGHT and INTENSELY saturated blocks I had made, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to make a coherent quilt. Naturally, the only solution was to create a photo-mosaic to see what I had and if it would work. Happy to report (as you can see below) that somehow the mish-mash of intensity translates into an actual thing. Yay!
|My photo mosaic of my blocks....er...at least 81 of them.|
As I transitioned into thumb jail at the end of the summer, I took to actually laying out my blocks the way I think I want them to appear in the final quilt layout. While the disorder above show me that it will actually work, I need a bit more structure in my life. Perhaps a little rainbow colour order structure...
|You guys! All the heart eyes for this!|
And one last thing...
These are the most sinfully delicious doughnuts I've ever had.
|Daddy O Doughnuts peeps. Yum.|
