One of my many WIP
I'm embarrassed to say I've been working on this quilt for a couple months. The block and layout are simple but I just haven't found the time to sandwich the quilt just like I haven't found time to do laundry. You can see the block construction below:
|Moving Links Block|
See straight forward construction,right? The block is 6" x 14" finished and I have sewn three WOF strips together then cut to size to make the end units on each 'link.' The inspiration for this quilt came from a throw pillow:
|MID CENTURY CREWEL BRACKET GEO PILLOW WEST ELM|
In this case my quilt is a fairly literal interpretation of the textile used for this pillow. Throw pillows are my go to when I want to design a quick quilt top. The inspiration can be literal, like above or sometimes just a color pallet. I picked yellow as an accent color because I've always loved grey and yellow together. I remember having a Monopoly spin off game when I was little and admiring how the grey and yellow pieces looked next to each other. Maybe this weekend, after I start the laundry and if CJ is napping, I can get the sandwich together. I chose April Rhodes' Wandering Lands in Boreas by AGF for the back.
I really do like the looks for this quilt so I do want to finish it. Hopefully soon. I need it finished because I'm, like I've said before, working on several other quilts. Here's a sneak peek at one I started for my daughter.
