World Wide Quilting Day

Today, March 18 is World Wide Quilting Day.  I put my other projects aside and worked on making a quilt top.
First two pieces of fabric that I hand dyed were sliced and converged a la Ricky Tims and became this.
It didn't seem to have enough punch. Strong black was called into play and with more slicing and re-piecing, it became this:


While the plan was a little bit different, this is a very happy piece.  Some of it changed due to the restrictions of fabric size. But some of it changed due to going too quickly. (aka operator error - says the peanut gallery.)

I hope you are having a great weekend.

Super finish. Wonderful color and love how you worked the border. Looks great.

Two more like the top photo and you would have had something like an "Around the World" pattern. Perfect for the day, but I can see why you switched it up. I like it both ways, and I am guessing the approximate size somewhere around 20" x 30" square?

Very nice!

Love the black! It really brings out the diagonal lines in the color squares.

Black was the perfect choice. I have a subscription to the Quilt Show and haven't watched one episode. Ugh, will I ever have enough time to do everything I want or need?

Superb! Everything worked out for the best.
Kind of how life is, you start out down one path and then find yourself somewhere
you didn't plan to be but it turns out for the best.
