My Bright Patches OP 5, 6

Love it … despite the blue!

The blocks in the corner were initially drawn with pencil and paper, and were inspired by a Jinny Beyer block which had a square in the middle of each side. (You will have to tilt your head to see how the block looks in a straight setting as they are on point here.) I started adding and deleting lines and saved all the sketches until I got EQ5, then drafted them all and added them to my EQ library.

Love this one too!

There is probably some Jinny Beyer influence in more of the blocks, particularly the star in the centre of the second design.

    I love them both and the colorway is great as well. I especially like the stars. Jinny Beyer is a quilting inspiration to a lot of people. I am amazed at how fast she can hand piece. Her color theory is wonderful too.


  2. The 2nd quilt in here uses that gentle curves that can be achieved with the cathedral windows technique. Or at least it looks like so, I keep looking at it and trying to figure out the best way to re-create or make this block. Actually both the blocks that are set on point that make the “on point darker diamond shape” and the (four) ones with curves in the middle as well. That would be a good EQ challenge for me to learn how to shape blocks in this way, in addition to figuring out how to transfer to fabric. Whoo!


    • Darla,

      That sounds like someone with an interest in science taking an interest in quilt design too! (Not surprising with your background.) Sounds like you need to play with design more, and if I can encourage you to do that I will be happy!
