The quilties I made this month gave me a chance to try a few new pattern blocks.
I have made a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt before, but this one was made with no particular background fabric, just assorted blocks. Also, when there wasn't enough material for a full block I pieced from smaller cuts of fabric. Certainly a different look. The free motion quilting was hearts and curves with circles.
Took the opportunity to try a Quilt As You Go quiltie. This is a fun method which works well with long strips that are at least 1 1/2" to approximately 3" in width. Once all the fabric was sewn, I made lines diagonally to the ones that were formed when I sewed the long strips on.
The guild sometimes provides kits of fabric that we can work with. I picked up one that had some interesting colors - dark blues, reds, yellows and black and white fabric - not the usual baby pastels. It also had a print of snowmobiles with some of those colors. Fortunately, there was enough fabric for 2 quilties. I made On the Fence pattern with one and stitched in the ditch for quilting.
The second was Rectangle Pinwheels. The quilting was hearts, curves and circles.
