Middle of yet another week!
Another look at some virtual designs from the same project file as last week, this week showing designs where I have done the twisting and turning myself.
Sometimes I cheat by clicking the rotate tool twice while holding down the control button.
The effect of doing that is to turn the design inside out.
This is fun!
Same blocks collection as yesterday’s design, but his time the blocks are on point.
I am still amazed at just how many quilt designs can be found when playing with a small collection of blocks.
Love that low contrast!
Also love that the lines between the blocks are blurred by using the same fabric for adjoining pieces.
In a real quilt you could maybe eliminate a few seam lines … though it could be a bit tricky, as all blocks would not be square!
From the same block collection, same fabrics as the last two designs, but this time with the block on point.
Bit more room to play with today, though using the same blocks as yesterday’s design … and some quilting too!
Some basically pieced 9 patch blocks, a bit of applique … nice!
These are the last of the first designs in Leaf Central … I was playing with the Symmetry tool, which twists and turns all the blocks in a quilt design with just one click of the button.
You get series of designs with blocks rotated in a limited number of settings, with directional blocks forming the same design facing different directions… my only real input was changing the leaves.
Then I started playing my way … more of that next week, mid week, in the virtual Log Cabin Retreat.
Simple colour scheme, basic Nine Patch blocks.
I seem to be opening old project files looking for virtual quilts this week … playing with blues … lots of them.
Doesn’t matter if we make modern quilts … in my book all our quilts are modern anyway, even of they are old fashioned colours, or styles … but we all use modern tools, and don’t have to use old fashioned household equipment!
The Luxury of Modern Day Quilting
(I do a lot of hand work, but even then I use modern tools to design, print patterns and cut, and for applique we have fusibles and glue to help!)
