The Austin Modern Quilt Guild held it's June meeting tonight. It was a great time, and I was happy to show up with my two blocks: one to swap and one to contribute to a donation quilt. The idea was to use black and white with a pop of color for these two Summer Sampler Series blocks. I actually had to buy some black fabric for these blocks, because I didn't own any. Oops. I like color.
This block was a tedious lesson in patience, especially as I squared up a gazillion half square triangles. I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Though, I'm tempted to try the alternate piecing method when I make one for myself. Would that be so lazy?
This one wasn't too bad, and the block has so much movement in it. I'll make one out of Kate Spain's Terrain fabric to keep for myself sooner rather than later!
The tutorials for these two blocks were fantastic. Have you fallen in love with any tutorials lately?
