I had lots of quilting planned for this weekend until I experienced an expected event. It was certainly an act of gracefulness. While taking a walk I rolled my ankle on a section of sidewalk that had been partially removed. I experienced quite a roll as I tumbled to the ground. I now have a beautiful elephant ankle that is all sorts of pretty colors. Yesterday was spent icing and elevating.
I managed to put together a quilt top for charity. These blocks have lived with me for many years. It was a group project where everyone brought in a fat quarter of his/her ugliest fabric. We swapped these fabrics and everyone made the same block (or mostly the same). It was a great way to experiment with color. Many used the Joen Wolfrum Color Tool . I made several blocks because I thought it was a great exercise. Besides - I didn't want any of the fabric I received to remain in my stash.
I had enough blocks, that I sorted them, The first 12 blocks were mostly dark and country fabrics, I had the perfect sashing and border fabric in my stash. Can you spot which fabrics were deemed the ugly fabric in the blocks.
I plan to get these together this week and work on a few more UFOs.
Does anyone recognize the block they made?
