What if I select a few basic blocks from the Electric Quilt block library, and use them on point, sometimes with sashing, sometimes without, sometimes using plain filler blocks, ………….. basically mixing them up like I have been doing in all the series so far.
Oh, and this time I have added a couple of borders, also from the EQ library. None of the blocks have been altered in any way apart from colour.
The blocks were chosen because they were basic and generally fairly well known amongst quilters, the borders were chosen because they are interesting and not Flying Geese. (I like Flying Geese, but it has to be one of the most overused border designs out there!) I have also used the border blocks in the centre of the designs whenever I felt the urge.
Let us pause for a moment ….. in a comment someone asked about how the border in this one went together, so I added the design again …… this time with the block pieces outlined so you can see them clearly.
I use the same fabric in adjacent pieces a lot so the lines are blurred between blocks. Sometime it is possible to omit seam lines so the line is blurred even more, but a fairly dense filler quilting design will cover up seam lines between two pieces of the same fabric.
Lots of illusions, but no real magic when you know how it is done!
