I’m continuing to enjoy working on my quilt which was inspired by the beautiful scenery of California.
Here it is at 14 blocks (plus one in-progress.)
I’m really happy with the way it’s progressing.
Check out how much the in-progress block, above, changed in the photo below.
I think I probably sliced and diced that block more than any of the others. It’s a constant balancing act for me as I make decisions about what to retain (mostly just very general color positions,) and what to abstract.
You may have noticed that many of the blocks have curved edges. That’s because I’ll probably use curved seams to join them together. I’m keeping them all a little large and wonky to allow for t hat.
The photo above shows 19 blocks, about half of the number needed.
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot to tell you: I scorched it! Controlling all the curved seams requires a good bit of pressing and I apparently over did it. See how the seam allowances look sorta yellow? Yep, I burnt them. I’m not panicking, though. Worse case: I’ll make a new block. Best case: I’ll use some of my art products and cover it. (But, I AM pressing more carefully now!)
Hope you’re enjoying seeing this piece in progress.
