I’m working on a color wash quilt. Don’t gag, it’s not your usual color wash. I’m using my 4″ square dance templates as the building blocks. I’m not making pinwheels, just using the block design as a vehicle for delivering random colors. I think it’s gonna be cool. Given my penchant for bright colors and eclectric design, you know it’s gotta be different.
I started by cutting a bunch of pinwheel wedges and center squares and sewing them together randomly with no two of the same fabric in the same block. Then I started throwing them up on my design wall.
I’m sticking religiously to the square units. Where the color changes I’m cutting the sections along the division lines and matching the block shape where the new color joins. You’ll probably need to click on the image to see what I’m talking about.
