Machine Quilting Party # 4

I haven’t posted as many photos of this particular sew-along but that’s because there will be just 12 large blocks, one per month.  To put that in perspective, the Bloom sew-along that I’m doing is weekly for 20 weeks.  The Splendid Sampler is semi-weekly with blocks that are released on Sundays and Thursdays.

2016-04-04 19.19.11I decided when I started this quilt that I wanted to use the 3 primary colors and 3 complementary colors- red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.  Each month I pick a different color to go in the outside of each square – blue this month – and then see what other 2 colors I haven’t used as much yet.  That way there’s continuity between the blocks and yet each one has a different feel to it, depending on the mix of primary to complementary colors.  This one has a very different feel to it than the one I did that has blue, green and purple for instance.

2016-04-04 14.42.26-1I still need to quilt it; I might end up doing that after I finish quilting the king that I’m working on since I can see the end of the tunnel with it.  Speaking of the king quilt that I dare not post photos of because it’s a present, I decided today to name it Elvis because I always call it the king!

Here’s what’s growing just outside the windows in my sewing room this week.
