I decided my ensemble was complete with the design of my last block, Hat’s Off, which appeared in 100 Blocks, Volume 4. It was time for something new for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 5 and I decided a pieced block was the answer.
I really appreciate designs that look more complicated than they actually are. Makes me feel like I’m getting away with something if others think I made something really intricate and involved, even when I didn’t (I’m probably the only one who believes that)!
The color palette of this Central Park fabric line designed by Deborah Edwards for Northcott really caught my eye. I find the colors very soothing, kinda spa-like! I wonder what this block would look like in other color palettes…
maybe grayscale with a pop of red:
how about something sweet and girly:
or maybe something more masculine:
Hmm… I just love what a difference color can make in a quilt! Doesn’t it just make you want to go see what you can get away with in your quilting?
