One of my dear friends and blogger buddies, Teresa, mentioned that My Beginner's Quilt Along blocks do not seem to be in my style.
You did a great job on this block, Gene. To be honest, the fabric does not look like you, or something you would use.
I totally agree, but I make quilts to sell as well as to keep or give. So that quilt is going in the "for sale" pile. In fact that was the original plan.
I was planning to make a second version anyway, but just wasn't motivated. Teresa's comment was the catalyst for my motivation. This morning, I made 4 of the seven blocks.
They are not trimmed to size yet, but they are far more my color style, don't you think? I am planning to use just these four colors for the entire quilt. Although I may have to add in a yellow just for a little extra SPARK. We will see what I decide later.
There was one block in the other set that didn't seem to work when I laid all the blocks together:
This one will go in a backing, so it is not wasted.
I made a replacement for it:
Way better if you ask me! It matches up with the fabrics in the other blocks a lot better.
