Probably the first challenge is to find the time, but if you beat that challenge, here goes!
Select a block from the
Electric Quilt Library … Classic Pieced … Antique Mosaics.
Add at least four seam lines, then play with colour placement. If you are brave, also delete some lines, before or after you play with colour placement.
One thing to keep in mind when playing with colour is that colour gets a lot of the credit while contrast does a lot of the work.
I selected the first Antique Mosaic block, Mosaic No 1.
The grey version from the library.
The colour version from the library.
My colour fabric choices from the default palette.
I have altered the colour placement. I like it much better like that.
Now to start some modifications. Here are my results.
Some lines added to the original block.
I rather like my new version.
Two alternative fabric placements.
And some lines deleted!
If you start with the same block as me, and work out how to make the changes I did, your next challenge is to then choose another Antique Mosaic and make your own modifications!
After that, keep altering Antique Mosaic blocks from the EQ library.
My next challenge will be to work out how to start a FaceBook group!
